Crested Tit

There are many  bird watching tour companies and indeed birding tour guides in the Highlands of Scotland, so why should you book a trip with Birding Ecosse?  Well what we offer is more than just a Birding Tour, we offer  life long memories. From the moment you contact us we will make sure your Highlands holiday goes as planned, with fantastic birds, stunning scenery, a friendly knowledgeable guide and interesting facts and history of the local areas you will be visiting. Your tour guide during your holiday will be Dave Slater a born and bred Scot that has been offering fully guided birding tours, tailor made for you, since 2011.

Your Guide, Dave, acting nonchalant with the beautiful Cuillins of Skye as a backdrop.

And no more missing the birds because you are stuck at the back of a minibus, no more waiting in line to view a bird, no more missing birds as the guide was busy speaking to someone else and definitely no sub standard food and accommodation. Here at Birding Ecosse we pride ourselves in using only the best hotels and guest houses in the area, and keeping the group size on our  bird watching trips to a Maximum of 4  (and a maximum of 6 on our Andalucía trips) ensures a very personal experience with your guide.

Golden Eagle

The Scottish Highlands are a haven for birds and birding.  From the tiny Crested Tit, the beautiful summer plumaged Slavonian Grebe to the mighty Golden and White Tailed Eagles we have it all.  Add to that the amazing wildlife in stunning scenery and experienced local birding guide then you have the recipe for a perfect bird watching holiday.  From a day’s birding to a fully organised bird watching mid week break or long weekend then don’t feel like you are part of the crowd.

Slavonian Grebe

We are proud of our flexible approach to birdwatching trips and specialise in novice birders wanting to improve their field skills or add to their species lists, however we still cater for the serious birder searching for a particular target species or to a full on twitch looking to connect with that rarity.

Birding Ecosse tours are carried out in small informal groups of people who want to bird watch in the Scottish Highlands, a limit of four people per tour means you get the maximum time with your guide and plenty of time to use our superb “Swarovski” Scopes. At Birding Ecosse we will ensure you have ample time to enjoy the birds you see, no working to a rigid schedule.
