What to expect
In an encouraging atmosphere, you will have the opportunity to learn basic birding skills and wildlife knowledge as you ramble through a lush upland birch wood with your guide. This walking tour is perfect for anyone who enjoys learning about wildlife in a relaxed practice-based environment. Depending on what we see on the day, we will focus on tits, finches, thrushes and woodland mammals like red deer. Also learn about Scotland’s rainforest habitat! We will be walking at a moderate pace with frequent stops. Get ready for a relaxed woodland walk sprinkled with wildlife facts and practical nature skills! You will also be treated to some light refreshments (teas & Scottish biscuits) as you take in the natural beauty around you.


Local heritage will also be showcased. An old mill building on Ballindalloch Highland Estate is one fascinating site you will see.
