Wildlife Around Ardgour

Ardgour, an unspoilt wilderness has a wonderful variety of wildlife of all shapes and sizes, and any time of year you visit, you’ll be sure to see something special. We make careful conservation at the heart of everything we do. Enjoy reading our Wildlife Diary written by our guests.

For the most popular species and best time of year to view them ‘Wildlife watching calendar’ is a useful. Without going into serious detail, here are a few of the species that inhabit our surroundings- or rather we inhabit theirs!


Sea Eagles, Golden Eagles, Peregrine Falcons, Ptarmigan, Grouse, Woodcock, Snipe, Woodpeckers, Greenshank, Herons, Buzzards, Swallows, Oyster Catchers, and all the usual smaller species- too many to mention.


Red Deer, Roe Deer, pine martens, foxes, badgers, Otters, squirrels, Seals….. and maybe the odd Wild Cat!


Adders, slow-worms, Lizards.

We could go on listing everything that we have to offer, but we’d prefer it if you took our word for it and paid us a visit; for the nature lover and wildlife enthusiast Ardgour offers a huge amount and is a veritable haven for wildlife.
