Best Birdwatching Sites in the Scottish Highlands

Gordon Hamlett

(2014) Now includes Mull & Iona! Special birds such as Capercaillie, Dotterel, Ptarmigan, Golden and White-tailed Eagles and Crested Tit draw hundreds of birdwatchers to Scotland every year. Gordon Hamlett has visited every year since the mid-1980s and his first-hand knowledge has enabled him to spotlight no fewer than 27 tours, from Pitlochry in the south to John O'Groats in Caithness, incorporating scores of individual sites, some of which have never been documented before. As with all Buckingham Press site guides, the information on reserves has been checked and approved by wardens and management bodies to ensure accuracy. All the sites mentioned can be visited by car and there are maps of both the road routes and more detailed information for the larger reserves.

  • 217 maps, covering car journeys and all significant birding stops.
  • Up-to-date bird information and a Highlands bird checklist.
  • Birding tips to tell you how to get the most from each site.
  • Advice for wheelchair users and less mobile visitors.
  • In-depth guides to the islands of Mull, Iona, Skye and Handa.
  • A month-by-month guide to birdwatching in the Highlands.
