Speyside and Cairngorms Wildlife

Speyside & Cairngorms Wildlife

The forests themselves are now home to a myriad of rare and endemic species of wildlife, from the elusive wildcat to the dapper diminutive crested tit. Regal capercaillie strut amongst the forest floor uttering their guttural mating calls, while the monarchs of the glen, the red deer stags, patrol the moorland. 

Smaller roe deer silently graze amongst the woods, and high in the pine tops the metallic 'chip' of Scotland's only endemic bird, the Scottish crossbill, rings out in the crisp wilderness. Rare pine marten and russet red squirrels seek out food amongst the branches to thrill the patient observer. With the rounded knuckles of the Cairngorm peaks forming a dramatic backdrop what more would you want from a Scottish adventure!  For more Scottish wildlife, have a look at Walking and Wildlife in Orkney.
