Alladale Wilderness Reserve

From Inverness to the remote Alladale Wilderness Reserve where we shall witness the Red Deer rut from the comfort of exquisite Alladale Lodge. We shall visit some of the best wildlife watching spots in the northern Scottish Highlands in search of Bottlenose Dolphins, Golden and White-tailed Eagles and Otters.

"Arriving at the lodge for a welcome cup of tea, to then see two wild red stags peering in the windows. An Otter swimming to a rock and pausing briefly to eat his catch. Wonderful scenery and sunsets. Seeing Wildcats being bred for release. Being in the heart of a rewilding area and learning all about the 200 year strategy. Having the lodge to ourselves - no need for locks, being trusted to turn the lights off and shut the front door before retiring. Being able to come down in the night to get a coffee or tea. Just a perfect setting" Jane Nickerson, 2021
