Raptors of the Highlands

The Cairngorms National Park and the Isle of Skye are two of the best places in the UK to watch raptors. Almost all the UK’s iconic birds of prey are possible against a backdrop of remote places - mountains, moorland and ancient forest. We will spend a week concentrating on seeking out raptors at two wonderful but very different locations. If you have a particular interest in birds of prey then this new raptor themed week promises to be simply outstanding.
