Wildlife Watching with Speyside Wildlife

Wildlife Watching with Speyside Wildlife


Evening Mammal Watching - Join one of Speyside Wildlife's friendly, expert guides for an amazing evening's wildlife watching experience. You'll have the chance of taking great photos and videos of Pine Marten, Badger and much more from the comfort of our hide in the forest on Rothiemurchus Estate in the Cairngorms National Park. As seen on Springwatch, these wonderful animals come within a few feet of the large picture windows, providing great photo opportunities and views at close quarters. Though the animals are free and untamed, years of understanding their nocturnal habits has ensured incredibly reliable sightings. This fully guided dusk-time watch is terrifically exciting.The hide is also available for exclusive bookings for those in larger groups, or professional photographers and filmmakers.If you'd like a full day or more of wildlife watching in the Cairngorms National Park or a full tailor-made holiday anywhere in Scotland, Speyside Wildlife can help!In such a vast area, where the special wildlife is thinly spread and elusive, you'll benefit from our unbeatable local knowledge to find the species you most want to see.
