"I won't forget the numerous birds of prey we saw and some at very close distance! Also the Bittern out in the open field, the brilliant bat evening where we had good numbers of Daubenton, Greater Horseshoe, Bechstein and Geoffroy's bats, the big pre-migration flocks of Swallows and Martins, and the smaller flocks of Bee-eaters and Rollers, and warblers, waders, and wetland birds. The sheer variety of birds that we saw and not forgetting the huge number of butterflies we had as well. It was an excellent trip and thoroughly enjoyable all round, with a great guide, great company, great weather and great food!"
Carolyn Newton, Hungary Summer 2015

"It really was a brilliant holiday and thanks to Julian and James being such fantastic leaders. We all had such fun and gelled so well together as a group. Will never forget Julian's and James' laugh - very catching! We were just so so fortunate to have a week of sunshine and from start to finish it really was one of the best Speyside holidays that I have been on. Not only the birds, but the wild flowers, butterflies and insects and I really feel that I have learnt a lot. I could say so much more, but I think from the comments that I have made you must realise that I really did enjoy the holiday so much."
Penny Overton, Pyrenees

Speyside Wildlife is one of 40 wildlife businesses to be assessed under Visit Scotland's pilot scheme for Wildlife Experiences achieving 4 Star status for our day tours.
