The Big Day Tour

What better way to tidy up your year list other than a “Big Day”  On this full day tour we take in most of the habitats the area has to offer trying to set a new Birding Ecosse day total record! From ancient Caledonian forests to Mountain tops, Lochs and Moorland to coastal estuary, this really is ideal day to achieve an excellent all round list of birds and see a lot of the local scenery.
