Cycle through ancient woodland or round a graded technical course, scale a Munro and admire the panoramic view from the summit, navigate an aerial assault course across a forest canopy or launch yourself into a free fall on a bungee jump. Perhaps you would prefer a more sedate activity like a gentle walk through an ancient pine forest or a guided wildlife tour to try out your photography skills. The choices are endless for beginners and experts alike, and we have listed a few ideas below.

Wild Life Tours, Walks, and Photography
The Scottish Highlands provide a rich variety of habitats for wildlife and explains why a large proportion of all the UK’s endangered species live here. These species include ospreys, capercaillie, the Scottish wildcat, golden eagle, red squirrel, snow bunting, lapwing, crested tit, dotterel and black grouse. There are several established operators in the area, providing wildlife tours and sessions to improve your photography. We have given you a couple of suggestions to help you get started.
