Scotland Nature Photography Tours

Puffins, White-tailed Eagles, Red Kites, Gannets, Landscapes, and more!

North-East Coast, Highlands, Cairngorms National Park, Isle of Mull, Isle of Skye, Glencoe and Fort William area. 

 

The BEST time to head to Scotland for the Atlantic Puffins is between mid June to end July. Puffins come on land to nest, they arrive to the Island in May and leave early August to head to see. I like June - July since this period the parents are very busy bringing in fish for the Pufflling (Puffin chick), so you get all those awesome flying Puffin shots with the fish. Also the colony is very active this month.
