"Came for the badgers, stayed for the guide - absolutely lovely evening. We saw two Badgers and a Scottish Wildcat, but mostly I just enjoyed the peace and quiet with time to relax. The best part was our guide Harris. I wish we spent more time asking him questions throughout the night as we waited for the Badgers to show up, he is a wonderful storyteller and has had lots of cool wildlife experiences with amazing knowledge of botany, animals and even Scottish history!! He was lovely to talk to and a great host." Maisie L via Trip Advisor, Feb 2024

"The variety of bird and animal life was fabulous, we had wonderful views of many sloths. As usual with Speyside trips a fun group of people and birds and animals to take your breath away. Loved spending a precious 20 minutes on my own watching a sloth climb down a tree to within 12 feet away and then crossing over the path above my head to another tree, just wonderful." Jean Brown, Panama 2023

"The whole experience was amazing, but I've always wanted to see a Pine Marten and thanks to Harris and his expertise and patience a beautiful male Pine Marten appeared it was such an amazing privilege. I can't thank you enough for making this possible. The whole experience was something I will never forget." Jan Gray, Evening Mammal Hide, Aug 2023

"We would like to thank you and the other office based staff for their sterling efforts to make emergency arrangements due to the cancelled flights. We felt confident in the re-arranged travel plans and the care and attention that our brilliant guides, Craig and Simon gave. Their reassuring and competent handling of the situations that arose were commendable. It was a memorable trip for us all and it was credit to Speyside staff that we were able to enjoy each aspect of the activities and destinations promised." Gill and John, Shetland 2023
