Home to wild wallabies since the 1940's

This may sound farfetched but this little tiny island is inhabited by wild wallabies! Inchconnachan Island has been home to some of Australia's wallabies since the 1940's. The wallabies were introduced by Lady Arran Colquhoun who was a lover of exotic animals and a fairly eccentric lady.  In 1980 Lady Arran become known as "the fastest granny on the water" after reaching 103mph on her speedboat.
