We did a morning safari and saw a fantastic range of birds and mammals, including red deer, mountain hare, mountain goats, red squirrels, peregrine falcon, red grouse and many more.
We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend Steve's wildlife safaris to anyone who has any interest in our spectacular scenery and the wildlife which thrives within.

I recently joined this beautiful golf club as a Country Member, the layout of the course and the stunning views are outstanding, the golf course itself is a fair challenge to my level of golf.
The surroundings and views are stunning, and teeing off through repeated tight avenues of trees is testing but exciting.

Alan and Fiona offer a unique experience whether it be taking the exciting sled dog trail with a well trained pack of dogs and musher or taking a more relaxed visit to the museum and dog centre.
The sled dog ride was not only fun and exhilarating but a really good way to see how the dogs are worked together as a team and appreciate the skill that goes into the whole operation.

Excellent value for money - a full hour on the quads, which really built my confidence and flew by on account of being so fun!
Were not disappointed at all - our guide Scott was lovely, and responsive to our abilities, and we had a terrific run around the moors, woodies and a rather damper area down by the river!

The Speyside Way this month was our latest challenge and despite a couple of days of heavy rain provided very varied scenery from upland moorland, coastline to riverbanks and forest glades.
It was a wonderful day in the saddle- the track is beautifully maintained and well signposted and the scenery is so lovely that we took hours to do the ride on account of the frequency of photo-stops.
