Local Wildlife

  • Red Kite

  • Nuthatch

  • Badger

  • Cormorrant

Dumfries & Galloway has rich and diverse wildlife, and you will not be here long before you spot a red kite soaring overhead or see a little red squirrel scamper off through the treetops, or deer running out of sight into the many wooded areas on the farm.  For both the casual observer and the dedicated enthusiast there will be something to charm and impress.

This collection of images was taken by a talented guest staying with us at our sister business at Ross Bay Retreat,  Margaret Holland , you can see more of her wonderful photography on her flickr page https://www.flickr.com/photos/67065881@N00/
