Back from Aviemore

Red Squirel

I’m just back from my holidays in Aviemore – and what a nice time we had. Among the highlights of the trip were the number of red squirrels we saw. Never having seen even one before, I was delighted. If you like to see some too, I’d recommend the feeding station at the Inshriach Alpine Nurseries – where they do very nice cake as well.

I’ve uploaded some footage from our camera to YouTube, which should appear as a 15 second clip below.

Please note, that as this helpful guide from the Highland Red Squirrel Group points out, thanks to the Nature Conservation (Scotland) Act 2004 it is now an offence to “intentionally or recklessly:

  • kill, injure or take (capture) a Red Squirrel;
  • damage, destroy or obstruct access to any structure or place which a Red Squirrel uses for shelter or protection; or
  • disturb a Red Squirrel while it is occupying a structure or place which it uses for that purpose.

While you’re in the area, you may also wish to locate solicitors in the Highlands.
