Reviews for The Cairngorms wildlife holiday in Scotland


review 12 Aug 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

There are honestly too many fantastic parts of the trip to be able to pick just one! We loved having the butterfly net on walks to catch interesting arthropods and inspect them! We loved star gazing with a cup of hot chocolate next to the fire while Dane told us traditional stories about the stars. The walks we went on were so beautiful and off the beaten track. It really makes the trip being able to go and explore places where others haven't been. It's a fantastic feeling to be able to have a proper base camp to go back to that has little home comforts like blankets and hot water bottles but still being in a really lovely spot hidden from the public. Falling asleep to the sound of a babbling burn is something that everyone should do at least once in their life. Waking up early to watch the sun rise over a loch to watch for otters was beautiful! All of this being said... The BEST part for me was the wildlife that we saw - a plethora of Red Dear, an abundance of Roe Dear, Red Squirrels, Scottish Crossbills and myriad interesting insects.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Take a good pair of walking boots, wet weather gear and a pack of cards. You literally don't need anything else!!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We had zero impact on the environment that we stayed in as we were camping in the beautiful Scottish Highlands. Dane is very concious of the environment in everything that he does. Dane is also a big supporter of a local dog rescue centre where some of his profit goes too!!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

10/10 would recommend Dane to anyone that was looking for a wilderness adventure without the hastle of having to put up your own tent and cook for yourself. His knowledge or the natural landscape, wildlife and traditional folklore is fantastic. He tells brilliant camp fire stories and is genuinely one of the nicest people with the kindest heart we've ever met.
