New Wildlife Walks Programme from Wildoutdoors

Perthshire outdoor operator, Wildoutdoors is introducing a new programme of Wildlife Walks for 2007.

Day trips start at 10.00am from Wildoutdoors base in Dunkeld which can be reached by train, bus or car unless marked and all the excursions are based within a two hour journey of Birnam. The walks range from easy to adventurous depending on your fitness and ability. There’s something for everyone and with wildlife expert Adrian Davis as your guide, you will be in good hands.

Wildoutdoors guides combine to give you a wonderful experience through the eyes of ecologists and naturalists with a practical approach that you actively take part in. Survey the wonderful extremes of landscape and habitats throughout Perthshire with botanists and wildlife experts. Take part in an adventure that truly opens your eyes and invigorates your senses, and smell the beautiful herbs and plants of the hay meadows and grasslands.

The walks aim to provide a relaxed and warm environment which will enable walkers to enjoy a day out in the Scottish hills and highland glens or a coastal walk along the beautiful Fife coastal path. The river walks are very popular and there is also lovely walks into the higher hills and moorlands above Dunkeld.  The flora of these areas is also spectacular in the early summer with glorious displays of rockrose and vipers bugloss, with cranesbill in the lower dune areas with marram grass. There are large numbers of seals along the coast with lovely estuaries and rolling sand-dunes.

All walks start at Birnam Guest House, Birnam, Dunkeld at 10.00am and cost £25 per person per day (adults), £15 for children with parent or legal guardian unless otherwise stated (some walks do have different starting point and there’s a supplement for transport).

The village of Dunkeld is an excellent place to base a wildlife-watching holiday, with Loch of the Lowes Nature Reserve and Land Rover Experience Scotland just up the road and Atholl Estates and award-winning Highland Adventure Safaris with a few minutes drive, there’s certainly plenty to do in additional to your wildlife walk.
