Scotland is home to the best wildlife viewing in the British Isles; rugged coastline, plunging sea cliffs, rolling moorland and imposing mountains each have their own unique ecosystem.
Wildlife abounds at every turn, and during this active week we hope to see species as varied as Pine marten, Basking shark and Golden eagle. Accommodation throughout is in comfortable 3-star properties, with all meals included.
