For Beginners

Here at Birding Ecosse we understand that not everyone is an expert, and booking onto an organised day tour or guided walk may be a daunting thought.  Well no need to worry as we have the following options available to you, or even as a gift for someone you may know wanting to start out in this fantastic hobby.

One to one:  Book a bespoke “beginners guide to birding” guided walk.

Choose from a variety of habitats and get personal tuition on the main aspects of birding, ranging from buying optics, how to use optics, what equipment you really need (and it is a lot less than you think!) An introduction to Basic Field craft and finally a guided walk putting it all into practice in an easy, no jargon, relaxed way, remember it is a hobby! And finally a complimentary Checklist to keep note of the Species we have seen.

At the end of walk we will even have a cup of tea/coffee (and choccie biccie)

Price for one to one is just £35 per guided walk. (beginners guide and walk will last around two hours)

Beginners guided walks:  Join a small group of like minded people, all beginners to the birding world.  We cover all the same points as above with the added benefit of more eyes looking for the birds!  (please contact Birding Ecosse for available dates)

Price for the beginners guided walks are £15 per person. (Max of 6 per Guided Walk, each session will last around two hours)

All the above come with the added bonus of binoculars to borrow (free of charge) so no need to even own any equipment and a complimentary Birding Ecosse checklist!  A chance to try before you buy into the world of birds! Plus the use of our fantastic Swarovski spotting scopes on each walk.

So no need to feel intimidated just contact us and let an amazing new chapter in your life begin.

Welcome to the fantastic world of Birding!
