Spring Birds

Birdwatching in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, based at our converted “steading” in beautiful Glen Feshie. We shall search out the bird specialities of Scotland including Crested Tit, Scottish Crossbill, Slavonian Grebe, Golden and White-tailed Eagle and mammals (like) such as Mountain Hare. Minibus transport, with day trips to the Moray and West Coasts. Walking generally easy, although some mountain tracks are rough.
