Are you a serious photographer or prefer quick snaps ? Are you interested in photographing landscapes, wildlife, birdlife, plants or simply in capturing wonderful holiday images?

Whatever your interest, this area offers you a plethora of opportunities to take some marvellous photos. When you’re out for a drive or a walk, every bend in the road opens up a stunning new vista, each turn on the path a new flower or plant. Our local wild creatures regularly pop up and “pose” but, of course, you’ll need to be quick – some of them are very camera shy ! If you prefer not to leave things to chance, you can book to visit places where viewings of Badgers, Capercaillie, Black Grouse & Ospreys are as likely as they are going to be. You copuld try:


Wildlife Watching with Speyside Wildlife
