Badger Photography Hide

Our hide is dedicated to photographing badgers under natural conditions. During the summer months the nights are short, enabling you to photograph animals in daylight.

We look forward to welcoming guests back into the Cairngorms. We shall be following all Government health and welfare instructions and have put in place our own regimes to ensure the safety of our guides and guests. To enable us to give you the best photographic experience within these parameters, we shall be opening up our booking system incrementally and in the first instance, only for those dates that we can offer most successfully. If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to email us. We shall update these options and alter our parameters as the restrictions are relaxed.

Exclusive UseOnly one booking per night, ideally for one person, but can accommodate two.

GroupA hygiene regime has been implemented, so we include a health form with all booking confirmations, that we need you to complete just prior to your viewing date. Hand sanitiser will be available as you go into the hide and we ask all guests to wear masks, either your own, or those we can provide. In addition, your booking confirmation will give extra handy hints about the evening so that you can maximise the enjoyment from your visit.

TimesNightly during the summer months (May to September), to start approximately one hour before dusk. The animals are around for a maximum of three hours. The actual meeting time will be given on confirmation of booking.

LocationA meeting point map and timings are provided on confirmation of booking. Be aware that there are no toilet facilities whilst in the hide so apologies, no comfort breaks during the evening.

Public TransportThe hide is a short journey from Aviemore and although it is not on the local bus route, our local taxi company is aware of the location and guests can book directly with Aviemore Taxis 01479 811111. Your meeting point map provided on confirmation of your booking will give them the precise location.

AccessThere is a short walk, less than 5 minutes on a wide track and then a downhill path, from the meeting point to the hide. Please remember to bring a torch, as the walk back to your car may be in the dark.

ClothingWarm, non-rustling, subdued outdoor clothing and walking shoes are preferable. Advice on the “how to do it” for this hide’s location, is provided on confirmation of booking.

InsectsCan occur during the summer months, but not a problem when in the hide.
