The Cairngorms National Park is home to some of our most iconic but elusive species of wildlife. Finding them in this vast and spectacular landscape can be a real challenge, especially if you have limited time or are unfamiliar with the area. Our expert local guides know the area intimately, so can take you to the best locations to help you find the species you’d most like to see. They can help you identify those species, recognise different bird calls, show you how to use fieldcraft and read animal tracks and signs. They can tell you about the behaviour and general biology of the species that you find in the Highlands, but most of all they will ensure that you have an exciting, fulfilling and rewarding day out.
Two or three days before your day out, your guide will contact you to discuss what you’d like to see and any specific requests that you may have. They’ll also agree a start time with you. You’ll be collected from your accommodation in the Grantown-Aviemore-Kingussie area, or we can pick you up from an agreed location. Standard Days out last around eight hours (normally 9am-5pm) and extended days out last around ten hours, with an early start or later finish.
