He was very careful to prioritise exactly what we wanted to see and was very knowledgeable about local wildlife viewing opportunities. Our priority was mountain hares which we saw in abundance through a scope and managed to scale... More

My husband and I had a wonderful day around Speyside. The environment is beautiful and the excellent knowledge and skill of our guide, Steve, ensured we saw lots of wildlife, including several birds and animals we had never seen before. We were picked up in a fabulous Landrover Discovery, kitted out with everything we could possibly need. Steve even brought... More

We went on a day safari hoping to see wildlife we hadn't seen before we weren't disappointed. Steve was a excellent host and extremely knowledgeable about the highlands and its wildlife. The Findhorn valley is some of the best scenery we have ever seen would recommend 100% and are planning to book another safari early next year
