Bamff Estate is of particular interest to birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts as it enjoys a broad range of indigenous and migrating species of birds. It is also close to Loch of the Lowes for ospreys and Kinnordy for waders. There are also lots of wild mammals at Bamff: roe deer may be seen standing in the clearings or bouncing off through the trees. Red squirrels, varying in colour from strawberry blonde to chestnut are not infrequently seen running up tree trunks and along branches. Pine martens are seen more rarely. Wildcats have been spotted over the years, and hedgehogs, moles, stoats, weasels, polecats, badgers and foxes all have homes at Bamff. The wild boars live a semi-wild existence in the woods and of course there are the famous Bamff beavers, best visited at dawn or dusk.
Walkers The Old Brewhouse holiday cottage is also a great base for exploring the Cateran Trail, the 64 mile waymarked circular walk through Highland Perthshire and the Angus Glens, and for golfers, skiers and castle visitors. The Trail passes right through the estate, just down the road from the house. You can also choose to walk two different circular routes on the grounds approximately 1-2 miles long.
