“A wonderful wildlife day with a knowledgable guide.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

Having visited the Cairngorms and Rothiemurchus before and been disappointed with the amount of wildlife that we could find for ourselves, this time we wanted to ensure that we would not miss out - so we booked a day safari with Steve Reddick. The day was excellent!! Steve is extremely knowledgable; not only does he know where to be and when, he also has a great eye for spotting wildlife that we would have easily missed. Steve picked us from our accomodation and later a cooked breakfast, whilst watching the red squirrels on the feeders, was also included.

We saw roe deer, red deer, a capercallie with chicks, slavonian grebes, oyster catcher, dippers, brown hare and mountain hare, red grouse chicks and so much more .......A particular highlight was watching an Osprey swoop down and pluck a fish from the loch and then fly right over our heads.

Steve has a great sense of humour and the day was pitched to suit our needs. Beginners and advanced wildlife or bird watchers would all benefit from his local knowledge and years' of experience.

Ladies fear not, toilet breaks are slotted in, using good local facilities, throughout the day. This trip was a major highlight and I would highly recommend a safari with Steve if you want to get the best out of your visit to the Cairngorms. Recommend that you have a chat with Steve and book before you go to Scotland so you can discuss your day in advance like we did, but you might get late availability after you arrive by calling Steve (mobile 07974151503).
