Meet the team

Speyside Wildlife’s small team really is the secret of our success. Enthusiasm, expertise and a sense of fun – they’ve got it! We know, and you tell us over and over again, that Speyside Wildlife’s guides and behind the scenes logistics just can’t be beaten.

Our holidays

Our holidays are just that – holidays. We’ll try to squeeze in as many exciting activities as we can, but still give you completely relaxed enjoyment, so that you can ‘switch off’ for the week. We pride ourselves on our high level of personal attention, but we won’t race around in pursuit of big lists. Our guides’ enthusiasm is infectious and whether you are a beginner or more experienced, young or old, we are happy to take time so you can enjoy the wildlife on a Speyside Wildlife experience to the full. Our office team makes sure everything runs smoothly before you arrive and our chefs at the Steading often get more praise than the wildlife and can tailor the meals to any specific requirements. Away from Speyside our holidays around Scotland, the UK and Overseas run to a very similar format. We try to find the most friendly, rural, good quality, family-run accommodation with ensuite facilities. For us, great food, accommodation with character and comfort and wildlife watching near at hand, are all vital ingredients in a successful Speyside Wildlife holiday.
