See some of Scotland's remarkable wildlife, from timourous red squirrels to playful dolphins.
An array of fascinating birds call Scotland home. Nesting in craggy cliff faces, in the tall trees of dense forests or on lonesome rocky outcrops and islands, millions of birds either choose to reside here or flock to Scotland from further afield. With so many opportunities to spot them; from organised birdwatching tours, wildlife cruises or while you explore the country’s breathtaking glens, moors and mountains, birds are some of the most accessible wildlife to enjoy.
