Our holidays are just that - holidays. We’ll try to squeeze in as many exciting€tivities as we can, but still give you completely relaxed enjoyment, so that you can ‘switch off’ for the week. We pride ourselves on our high level of personal attention, but we won’t race around in pursuit of big lists. Our guides’ enthusiasm is infectious and whether you are a beginner or more experienced, young or old, we are happy to take time so you can enjoy the wildlife on a Speyside Wildlife experience to the full. Our office team makes sure everything runs smoothly before you arrive and our chefs at the Steading often get more praise than the wildlife and can tailor the meals to any specific requirements. Away from Speyside our holidays around Scotland and Overseas run to a very similar format. We try to find the most friendly, rural, good quality, family-run accommodation with ensuite facilities. For us, great food, small groups€commodation with character and comfort and wildlife watching near at hand, are all vital ingredients in a successful Speyside Wildlife holiday.
You’ll find that you need little, if any, extra spending money (unless detailed), as our holidays are all inclusive - the price you see is the final price you pay and covers accommodation, meals, transport, boat and ferry costs and flights, as detailed with each destination. Not included are travel insurance, tips, expenditure for telephone calls, drinks etc at the€commodation, and items of a personal nature.
We’re all becoming increasingly aware of our impact on the environment. Consequently we’ve set out to do our bit to reduce our footprint. Not only are we adhering to the "reduce, re-use, recycle" ethos, but we’re also making a contribution back into the environment. Speyside Wildlife has linked up with RSPB Abernethy, which has a long term vision to extend the Caledonian Pine Forest within the Reserve. For the travel and transport included in the price of our holidays, we contribute to RSPB to help fund the Abernethy Tree Nursery, so helping to offset the effects of climate change. Each hour of air travel is offset by ¼ of a tree and each 1,000 kms of car travel is offset by ½ a tree. We look forward to welcoming you on a Speyside Wildlife experience soon.
