Nature & Wildlife Experiences

We offer a unique Wildlife Experience for this area of Scotland.  In the grounds here we have a purpose built 2 person wildlife hide that allows guests and photographers to get up close to some of Scotlands rarest creatures such as the Pine Marten and Red Squirrel.  All the sightings below have been in and around the Farm, Glen and close by Lochs (many from our own hide).  We encourage our guests to add to this list.  Our Wildlife Experience days are now available please contact us for details.  Guests booking one of our cottages are welcome to use our wildlife during their stay.  We also now have a reflection pool fo amazing bird photography.  Whilst some other wildlife hides companies charge high fees for use of their hides we do not charge a hide fee for guests staying with us (who have booked directly).  We have a lighting system available for nighttime photography of the pine marten that is available as an optional extra (£25).  If guests enjoy the hide then we do give them the option of donating to one of our local animal charity that we support (Barbara's Wildlife Rescue & Dunoon Small Animal Rescue).  Please note that children under 12 can only use the hide when accompanied by an adult.  Peanuts are used as feed so its not suitable for allergy sufferers.
