Experience the Red Deer Rut Tour 

Our Ranger Jackie will be doing an exciting Red Deer rut tour in the Cairngorms National Park this Autumn.

An unforgettable experience and one of nature’s most incredible moments in the wildlife calendar is the autumn red deer rut. Come and join Glenesk Wildlife this October and not only will you experience the sight and sound of red deer rutting but you will be wholly captivated from the moment you meet your guide Jackie by her incredible knowledge of these beautiful, majestic creatures.

The tour will begin at Tarfside car park in Glenesk where you will be met by your guide. You will be taken by 4×4 to a known spot where you will look and listen for the red deer stags. You will continue to drive and walk, looking out and listening for the stags’ bellow echoing around the hills. During the evening, you will be introduced to a Highland working pony (commonly known as Garrons), these ponies are still used on the estate to transport deer off the hill during the stalking season. You will eventually end up at Glenesk Bothy for a welcome hot drink and delicious cake where you will have a fun and interactive chat about deer. There will be some interesting props and facts including deer behaviour, ecology and management.

An experience you will never forget and certainly one to add to the bucket list! Be sure to book soon, these tours will be popular!
