A fabulous holiday for the general naturalist with an interest in the whole variety of Scotland’s wildlife, timed to give us the greatest variety of the special dragonflies, butterflies and flowers of the Highlands, plus some of the areas exciting mammals and birds too. Staying at a delightful hotel in Speyside, with minibus transport and generally easy walking with two longer walks with some steeper sections in the mountains and in Glen Affric.
"Mountain Day - couldn’t believe the plant species around the Northern Corries. Loch Garten and Abernethy - so many dragonflies! West coast trip - beautiful scenery and great wildlife. Finding rare orchids and Twinflower. Glen Affric - what a place!" Dorothy Noble, 2021
Plants and Animals
Established in 1991, Speyside Wildlife has been offering wildlife watching experiences around the world for over 30 years. Our holidays are just that - holidays. We’ll try to squeeze in as many exciting activities as we can, but still give you completely relaxed enjoyment, so that you can ‘switch off’ for the week. We pride ourselves on our high level of personal attention, but we won’t race around in pursuit of big lists. Our guides’ enthusiasm is infectious and whether you are a beginner or more experienced, young or old, we are happy to take time so you can enjoy the wildlife on a Speyside Wildlife experience to the full.
