Highland Bird experience.
It’s mountain day today (done the easy way!) After visiting a local pine forest looking for one of the Scottish classics, the Crested Tit, we head to the mountain tops in search of another iconic bird the Ptarmigan. After lunch it is off to Eagle country and the possibility of both Golden and White Tailed Eagle. Add to this Mountain Hare, Red Deer and Feral Goats it really is a brilliant full day in the field.
Target birds for the day: Ptarmigan, Crested Tit, Golden and White Tailed Eagle.
Give yourself a treat! Enjoy a long lie before you head down for your last breakfast at the Grant Arms. Sit back and enjoy the memories of the past two full days birding in the glorious Scottish Highlands, and start planning your next trip North!
