Cairngorms Winter Wildlife

Saturday 10 February 2018

Residential workshop in association with Nikon School, led by Chris Gomersall.

This late winter tour offers superb opportunities for photographing some of Scotland’s special wildlife subjects such as red squirrels and crested tits, using well-established feeding stations and purpose-built photography hides, right on our doorstep. Other subjects here include birds of the northern forests such as great spotted woodpecker, siskin, and occasionally treecreeper. From our base in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, we may also make excursions in search of red deer and mountain hare – or simply to enjoy photographing the amazing Highland landscape. Weather conditions will obviously influence what we are able to do, to some extent. There will be digital slide shows in the evenings after dinner, featuring presentations by Chris Gomersall, and participants are encouraged to bring some of their own work to share with the group.

Moderate fitness level required. Involves walking over rough ground.

Non-Nikon owners welcome.

Group size: 7 persons max

Accommodation: We shall be staying in a spectacular lodge at Ballintean, Glenfeshie, which has been reserved for our exclusive use. This sympathetically converted farm steading offers comfortable bedrooms for single or double occupancy, with a large shared lounge and meeting area, and remarkable views of the Cairngorms landscape. Meals are freshly prepared on site by our resident chef, using the finest local produce.

Transport: Local transport throughout the workshop provided.

Cost per person: £1045 – including 5 nights full board, all local transport, use of hides, tuition and presentations.

Availability:  Fully booked

I thought you did a great job of guiding us and providing us with wonderful opportunities.


Thanks so much for your very kind, relaxed, and very knowledgable tuition.


. . . thanks from me for another great week, and for prodding me in the right direction as always.


Many thanks to Chris Gomersall for all his help and invaluable tips on the day to enhance the experience.


Thanks for all the help and encouragement given to me during the recent trip. You are a wonderful tutor.


The balance between supporting and guiding us and leaving us to get on with things at the shoots was spot on.


I particularly wanted to say thanks for your inspiration and ‘push’ that has renewed my impetus to try harder with the photography!
