Our experienced guides can help you find the wildlife you most hope to see here in the Cairngorms National Park and surrounding area.
Evening Mammal Watching - Our hide is located in the Cairngorms in a woodland setting on the edge of Pine Forest, near Aviemore. Badger are regular visitors all year round and Pine Marten can also be seen. A variety of other Scottish wildlife may visit our hide whilst it is still light, including Tawny Owls, Red Squirrels and Roe Deer.
The hide can be booked on an exclusive basis if you wish to bring your own group for the evening. If you are looking for photographic opportunities, we have a Badger photographic hide for one to two people that can be booked each night on an exclusive basis through the summer months.
Guided Days Out - If you'd like a day of wildlife watching in the Cairngorms National Park or a full tailor-made holiday, Speyside Wildlife can help!
The Scottish Highlands is home to some iconic wildlife species but finding them can be a real challenge. Whether you are part of a family group wanting to see a broad range of Highland wildlife, or a keen birder looking for a specific and elusive species, our wildlife guides will guide you to the best locations using their expert knowledge; so whether it's Dotterel and Ptarmigan on the high tops, Capercaillie and Crested Tits in the forests, or maybe Otter and dolphin on the shoreline, tell us what you'd like to see and we can help you achieve your wildlife watching ambitions.
Our expert local guides know the area intimately, so can take you to the best locations to help you find the species you’d most like to see. They can help you identify those species, recognise different bird calls, show you how to use fieldcraft and read animal tracks and signs. They can tell you about the behaviour and general biology of the species that you find in the Highlands, but most of all they will ensure that you have an exciting, fulfilling and rewarding day out. On the day, we’ll judge the weather and decide where the wildlife can be found.
Two days before your day out, your guide will contact you to discuss what you’d like to see and any specific requests that you may have. They will collect you from your accommodation in the Grantown-Aviemore-Kingussie area or agree a meeting point with you.
