Wildlife

We are lucky to have an abundance of wildlife throughout our woodland garden, and along the river. So if you are coming to stay, do bring your binoculars and cameras. During 2018, we are doing a lot of work to cut down and replace invasive Cherry Laurel and Rhododendron Ponticum with a range of of native planting to further improve the biodiversity of our woodland garden. Planting includes: Willow; Hazel; Alder; Birch; Rowan and Hawthorn. We will also be planting a small number of Douglas Fir. We also have a number of 'wild' areas to further provide wildlife havens.

Our overall aim is to create a holiday setting, which is more than 'just a place to stay in', but one that is peaceful and relaxing and harmonises the needs of our holiday business and our guest experience, alongside a rich wildlife habitat.

At various times of the year, you can expect to see Roe deer, rabbits, squirrels, pheasants, partridges, owls, herons, ducks, kingfishers; white throated dippers a wide variety of finches and tits, plus many more species. The Scottish Wildlife Trust suggest that there are over 35 species of birds.
