Wildlife Holidays in Scotland

Discover Scotland's native wildlife as you explore the dramatic beauty of its natural habitat.

Our wildlife holidays are a little bit different from others you may have seen or joined. While we do spend some time in hides or in vehicles, our trips are more active than a 'normal' wildlife tour. The activities are easy and gentle but you can expect to experience delights such as coastal walks, sea kayaking with seals and boats trips to seek our Scotland's larger marine wildlife. The vast knowledge of our expert wildlife guides will help you interpret some of the fascinating wildlife behaviours while safely enjoying Scotland's great outdoors.

Our wildlife tours blend some of Scottish nature’s great events in the more incredible locations, with expert guides so you become part of the action.

Using activities, we’re able to get closer to Scottish wildlife because our guides understand their behaviour and you’re out there experiencing Scotland, rather than sitting in a hide waiting for the wildlife to come to you.
