Raptors of the Scottish Highlands

The Cairngorms National Park and the Isle of Mull are two of the best places in the UK to watch raptors. Almost all the UK’s iconic birds of prey are possible, against a backdrop of remote places - mountains, moorland and ancient forest. We shall spend a week concentrating on seeking out these iconic species at two wonderful but very different locations. If you have a particular interest in birds of prey, then this week promises to be simply outstanding. Minibus transport and some reasonable length walks on good tracks.
