Scotland is number 1 in Europe for wildlife watching due to range of wildlife-watching experiences we can offer.

You don’t have to be an expert to watching wildlife. Anybody and everybody is welcome, and we can often provide you with equipment such as binoculars if you don’t have your own.

There are myriad nature reserves, hides and visitor centres where you can discover Scotland’s wildlife for yourself and if you’d like some help or to meet like-minded folk then try and boat trips or cruises, a day with a wildlife guide or wildlife watching holiday or field studies course.
