A Highland Weekend getaway
With Birding Ecosse and The Grant Arms Hotel
Thursday 19 October to Monday 23 October 2017
Join Birding Ecosse for a long weekend at the luxurious Grant Arms Hotel situated in Grantown on Spey, deep in the Scottish Highlands
October in the Highlands of Scotland, what an excellent place to be!! With the stunning Moray Firth right on our doorstep and the Cairngorms and Monadhliaths just a stones throw away who know what will turn up where or when, to take advantage of these fantastic habitats we have decided to make October “Migration Watch Month.”
This will be a very free flowing and exciting weekend of birding, going to where the birds are, King Eider, Pectoral Sandpiper, White Rumped Sandpiper, Cranes, Yellow Browed Warbler, have all been reported in Moray and the Highlands at this time of year and who knows what we may find ourselves on our travels!

And so the fun begins! Three glorious days of Beautiful Scenery, fantastic Birding and lots and lots of Tunnocks Teacakes!
The small sample of birds pictured above are all real possibilities (the Sandhill Crane was Aberdeenshire but who knows if one will grace our shores!) Add to these the regular star birds such as Crested Tit, Golden and White Tailed Eagles, our Slavonian Grebes, Black, Red, Great Northern and White Billed Divers (a regular visitor in October) Skuas, Sea Ducks and Waders by the bucket it really is a spectacular time to visit.
