Wildlife & Birdwatching in South West Scotland

South West Scotland is the ideal location to birdwatch or to spot wildlife. The extensive wetlands and saltmarshes including RSPB Mersehead, Caerlaverock Wetland Centre and Wigtown Bay Nature Reserve offer the perfect opportunity to spot waders and waterfowl including the wonderful wild geese that winter here. Or meet red deer or wild goats at the Galloway Forest Park. Keep an eye out for the gorgeous native red squirrels on any of your forest walks, shier and smaller than their grey cousins, they are a little harder to spot, but are quite numerous in the region.
