Wildlife & Nature

The north west highlands has some of the most varied and unique bird and wildlife in Scotland. For some it turns a good holiday in to a great holiday.  If this is your idea of heaven then we will help you make the most of it. Guests coming to Ruddyglow Park come here to be spoilt and cosseted, to explore our wildlife and then look forward to coming home each evening. 

Red deer, Roe deer, Otters, Seals are just some of the wild creatures you might see up here.  We are also happy to share the unique experience of watching our resident family of Badgers and Pine Martins as they come to feed in our garden, virtually, every evening and are truly beautiful to watch.  We are even considering getting a small hide and if we have enough requests this will be in place next spring.

The bird life too is in abundance and a visit to Handa Island is a must especially at Puffin time! from the loch and burn lovers to the mountain and low ground birds, to the woodland and sea birds guests might see any of the following Black throated Diver, Red throated Diver, Mallard, Widgeon, Common Sandpiper, Common Gull, Reed Bunting, Heron, Red-breasted Merganser, Heron, Dipper, Grey and Pied Wagtail, Reed Bunting, Meadow Pipit, Red Grouse, Ring Ouzel, Wheateater, Skylark, Common Snipe, Whinchat, Stonechat, Golden Plover, Greenshank, Kestrel, Merlin, Peregrine Buzzard & Falcon, Tree Pipit, Wren, Robin, Willow Warbler, Goldcrest, Wood Warbler Spotted Flycatcher, Redstart, Blackbird, Redwing, Song Thrush, Mistle Thrush, Timice, Chaffinch, Redpoll, Bullfinch, Black Grouse, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Long-eared Owl, Sparrow Hawk, Buzzard, Auks, Gannet, Eider Duck, Arctic Tern, Oyster Catcher, Heron, Gull, Great Skua, Greylag Goose, Rock Pipit, Ducks, Shag, Cormorant, Puffin, Ptartmigan, Red Grouse, Golden Plover, Ring Ouzel, Meadow Pipit.
