Mountain Hare – Blair Atholl estate

During my annual visit back home to Bonnie Scotland we stayed at the Blair Atholl Palace hotel in Pitlochry.  Whilst there I had the opportunity to go on a land rover safari on the stunningly scenic Blair Atholl estate.  Opting for a dusk safari (7 – 9.30pm), we gradually climbed up to 2,300 feet, regularly stopping to view the mountain hare and the distant sight of red deer.  These were the only wildlife sightings during the evening – sadly, we were not fortunate enough to see golden eagles or grouse.  Nevertheless, the safari was still a worthwhile experience, especially to witness the spectacular scenery.
