Red Squirrel in garden at Eco Nature Holidays

Nature Photography Hide & Experiences

We offer a unique Wildlife Experience for this area of Scotland.  In the garden 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. Guests booking our accommodation can use our wildlife hide during their stay for free and we offer additional paid services for those who would like it.    


Our Wildlife hide is for exclusive use of guests staying with us so no sharing with loads of other photographers but it is open to others on request when availability allows.  It can seat 2 people in comfort and has a wide window for a 180 degree view of the natural perches & tripod attachments.  Set within our garden in a dedicated wildlife space we have planted trees, plants and wildflowers all to attract the bees, insects and mammals to our little wildlife haven, you can sit in comfort only 30 meters from the accommodation.  Even with a basic camera you can still capture amazing images.  A Mirrorless, Bridge Camera or DSLR with a kit lens with 300mm reach will be fine as the hide allows you to get up close.

We have a wealth of local knowledge & experience where wildlife watching opportunities are plentiful, depending upon the season.  From Otters, to waders such are Curlew, Red Shank & Oystercatchers to Seals, Porpoises, & Gannets.


We have a reflection pool for amazing photography opportunities.  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. If you are interested in any more of the wildlife photography services we offer please get in touch.  We also offer the chance to photograph the night sky and if your lucky the Aurora right here from our  garden.  Photographing the red squirrels and pine martens is a wonderful experience that our guests love.  We also have regular visits from Tawny Owls and in the past few years have watched chicks being raised here.  As the seasons change there is always something of interest to photograph all convientiently located in the garden or surrounding area.  Autumn and Winter are fantastic times to see wildlife here.
