It has been a pleasure to host you over the past year on our holidays; visiting the Outer Hebrides to the Isles of Scilly and several places in between. Keep an eye out over the next few weeks on Facebook, where Roy will be sharing highlights from our recent successful trip to Antarctica.

We look forward to seeing you again in 2022, when our guides will be happy to show you the best the Cairngorms has to offer during our Guided Days Out and our Evening Mammal Watching. We shall also keep updating you about new and forthcoming holidays in 2022 schedule through the enewsletter. If you would like to sign up for this please click here. If you have any immediate queries, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we wish you a Merry Christmas.

It has been lovely to be able to share some of your experiences with you via your kind comments in respect of holidays and wildlife experiences we’ve finally been able to deliver for you this year. Here are just a few more from the autumn and winter trips:

“Special thanks to Tania at Speyside who provided the most comprehensive, never ending advice, assistance and support from pre-booking to the day we got home…..How do you start to describe the landscapes of towering icebergs in Antarctica, the sight and sound of thousands of King Penguins in South Georgia or Rockhoppers in the Falklands, the days at sea on deck watching Wandering Albatrosses, whales and dolphins? The holiday as a complete package was fabulous.” Jean, Antarctica 2021

“Another wonderful holiday with Speyside. A good mix of guests, which made for a very entertaining time. Visited some excellent sites, a few new to me and our guides excelled in finding us those special species wherever they turned up. Little Auk, Willow Tit and Isabelline Wheatear were the highlights for me. All in all, a fantastic holiday.” Margaret, Northumberland 2021

“Both the guides were excellent and very patient in explaining and helping with ID of birds. We were kept very well informed on the day's plans and activities. Each day, we saw an excellent variety of bird life and landscapes and environments.” Catriona, Solway 2021

“Sally was brilliant - dealt with all the things that cropped up which led to changes in itinerary with a smile and a relaxed manner. Made sure there was plenty to see and do… Having the lodge to ourselves - no need for locks, being trusted to turn the lights off and shut the front door before retiring.” Jane, Alladale 2021

During all our wildlife experiences we continue to follow strict Covid-19 policies, including social distancing, wearing of masks in vehicles and increased cleaning of our minibuses, plus a track and trace system for all those joining us. In addition, our team has completed Covid Awareness training with Sports Scotland.
