Cairngorms Winter Wildlife

Saturday 13 February – Thursday 18 February 2021

Residential workshop in association with Nikon School, led by Chris Gomersall, and assisted by local guide James Shooter.

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. 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: 8 persons max

Accommodation: We shall be staying in a spectacular mountain 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 en-suite bathrooms, 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. We are satisfied that Ballintean is responsibly managed with covid secure protocols in place.

Transport: Due to the extraordinary circumstances of this pandemic, delegates must use their own vehicles throughout this event. There is ample free parking at Ballintean.

Cost per person: £1400 – including 5 nights full board, use of hides, tuition and presentations.
