Cairngorm Bird and Wildlife

Spring, summer and autumn are all beautiful times to visit the Highlands and the Cairngorm National Park in particular with the very light mornings and evenings.

There is, of course, an abundance of wildlife with a wide variety of birds and red squirrels on the feeders we put out in the gardens surrounding the cottages. There are also hares and roe deer in the fields.

Wildlife photographer Karen Miller recently stayed in one of our cottages and has written a blog about her experience as well as taking some genuinely amazing pictures.

Living my Wildlife Dream (Temporarily)

The Cairngorms is a very peaceful area with the roads relatively quiet compared to other areas. The mountains, lochs, forests, beaches and wide open spaces make it a wonderful area to explore, including for families – whether on foot, bikes, in canoes or by car.

You can walk up to the track to the top of Cairngorm, canoe on Loch Morlich or Loch Insh, visit the beaches at Findhorn or Nairn, enjoy the adventure park at Landmark in Carrbridge or explore the numerous trails in Abernethy Forest. The city of Inverness is not far away, nor is the Wildlife Park at Kincraig , Loch Ness or Culloden Battlefield.

We offer weeks in May for £380, June (£400), July and August (both £550) and September (£400) and October (£380).
