Scotland has a rich diversity of landscapes from Caledonian pine forest to remote mountain glens. Thus it is a haven for native wildlife and a nature lovers paradise! One of my favourite nature reserves is RSPB Sumburgh Head in Shetland where you can view our beautiful puffins at close range along the sea cliffs. Local to my home village of Ballater is the wonderful Mar Lodge Estate which is a hot spot for Red deer, Red Squirrels and many birds of prey.
Where are your local wildlife hot spots and favourite Nature Reserves?
