Autumn Wildlife

Autumn has a special feel, with the trees changing colour and roaring stags plus migration in full swing. There is much to see on this wildlife watching holiday in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, staying at our delightful converted “steading” in beautiful Glen Feshie. Enjoy the whole variety of Scotland’s wildlife, from local specialities such as Crested Tit and Scottish Crossbill, plus days on the Moray Coast and West Coast. Minibus transport with generally easy walking but a couple of rougher tracks.

Day 1Arrive in Glen Feshie in time for an evening meal and a chat about our plans for the coming week.
7 nights at the Steading
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

WalkingMost walks are 1-2 miles on wide sandy tracks, although there is the possibility of a forest walk of up to 4 miles

We take groups on to the Cairngorms plateau from the funicular railway summit to see Ptarmigan, therefore 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
WeatherThe weather can vary enormously. Snow can occur in the mountains at any season with sunny warm weather also possible. During a typical week in autumn we would expect to experience mixed sun and showers with temperatures in the range 8-18ºC. You may want to bring sunscreen
InsectsBiting midges are rare at this time of year.
MealsAll included from dinner on Day 1 to breakfast on Day 8.
AccomDouble, twin and single ensuite rooms at our very special, delightfully furnished converted barn, the Steading.
