For lovers of bird photography, this is a brilliant opportunity to photograph one of Scotland’s most beautiful species. In the UK, crested tits are confined to the woodlands of the northern Scottish Highlands. They are rare breeding birds, threatened by decades of habitat loss.

Our site is located on the edge of a gorgeous pine woodland, allowing plenty of light to get in even on dull days. In the evenings the light can be stunning, allowing opportunities for photographing ‘cresties’ in the light of the sunset.

We do not use a hide for photographing crested tits. Staying on foot and being able to change position freely allows us to maximise our time and get a wide variety of images.

What’s included?
– A 4 hour session of guided crested tit photography in a gorgeous forest setting.
– As much or as little photographic tuition as you may require. Our visitors range from absolute beginners to semi-professionals. I can provide photographic tuition, or if you prefer – leave you to enjoy your session.
– Advice on image post-production if necessary.
– The option to include a morning of red squirrel photography for an additional £30 (£90 total). Please specify this option when you book.

Transport
 – Typically we don’t provide transport to and from the site, so having access to your own vehicle is preferable. If this is a problem, please be in touch and we’ll have a chat to discuss options.
