Speyside 247

A wonderful wildlife watching holiday in the Scottish Highlands, where you will have the best possible chance of seeing many of Scotland's iconic species as we seek out 24 of the best birds and 7 of the best mammals. Single centre holiday, based in the Cairngorms National Park. Minibus transport throughout. Walking is generally easy, although more strenuous in the mountains.

Days 2-7Wildlife and birdwatching exploration including Abernethy Forest, Dava Moor, the Cairngorms, the Moray Firth and West Coast.
Day 8After breakfast we say our farewells and depart.

WeatherVaries from cold to warm and sunny (8°-15°C), with less rainfall than much of Scotland but snow possible in the mountains.
WalkingMost walks are 1-2 miles on wide sandy tracks, although there is the possibility of a forest walk of up to 5 miles. We can now take groups on to the Cairngorms plateau from the funicular railway summit to see Ptarmigan, therefore it may be necessary to take a walk on paths over uneven and occasionally undulating rocky terrain. Low-level unguided alternatives are available. Walking boots will be needed on the holiday.
AccomDouble, twin and single ensuite rooms, the last single room will be in a self-contained flat 50 metres from the main building, Ballintean Mountain Lodge in Glenfeshie
MealsAll included from dinner on Day 1 to breakfast on Day 8.
InsectsNot a problem at this time of year.
