A Spectacular Speyside Wildlife Walk
June is now in full swing and hopefully the summer weather will follow soon!
Luckily for our three guests from Cullen, the sun burst through the dense clouds and all the glorious wildlife in Speyside sprang into action!
We had an amazing day walking through a variety of habitats, and spotted some spectacular flora and fauna, as well as taking in the beautiful scenery Scotland has to offer.
Along our 2 hour walk, we spotted Lapwing, Oystercatcher, Curlew and Sandpiper to name a few, as well as Skylarks filling the sky with their joyous singing.
As well as wildlife of the feathered variety, we also spotted Roe Deer, a very curious Rabbit and even the footprints of a secretive Otter.
Part of our walk ventured onto the Speyside Way; the route of the old Speyside Line railway built by the Strathspey Railway Company between Craigellachie and Boat of Garten, commencing in the mid 1840s. So it’s safe to say that our tours combine Natural History with local history!
When the sun came out, so did the butterflies. We spotted Green Veined White butterflies flitting through the fragrant Bog Myrtle and bursts of Red Campion among the pathways and woodland.
So thank you to our guests from Cullen, who won a voucher in an auction for Scottish Autism, for coming on a tour with us. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
