We offer 7 or 4-night, all-inclusive wildlife holidays. These are based at Glenloy Lodge, near Fort William in the West Highlands of Scotland. Seven night holidays run from Saturday to Saturday and include 6 full days of guided wildlife watching. Four night holidays are more focused, with three full day trips targeting specific wildlife.  All boat and additional trips are also included as are all meals. We offer an optional pick-up and drop-off from Fort William.

All holidays are led by naturalists and trained biologists, Jon and Angela Mercer. We explore the wildlife and landscape of Lochaber and surrounding area, looking for iconic Scottish species such as the ‘big five’ (golden eagle, red deer, otter, common seal and red squirrel). Other wildlife we look for include; divers, sea eagles, black grouse and cetaceans. There is wide variety of wildlife in the area, with northern butterflies being one of our specialities. We include plants and insects in our interests and will try to have at least one decent walk each day which allows us to look more closely at all aspects of the local ecology. These will be up to about 3 miles in length, and will include rough ground. Although we always go at a pace that allows us to spot as much as possible, whilst providing opportunities for photographers.

Holiday titles reflect seasonal highlights, but on all holiday weeks we will cover a wide range of habitats and species. Holiday prices reflect additional transport costs required for different target species, such as marine mammals, but at least one boat trip will be included in each full week (weather permitting).

Group size is a minimum of 2 and maximum of 7 people.
