When you hear the iconic roar of rutting in Torridon at this time of year, you know the Torridon Activities team won’t be far away.
Let’s put that another way.
It is rutting season amongst the wild red deer in the Torridon hills and if you have been inspired by today’s story on the BBC Rutting Stags Draw Safari Tourists you will be pleased to know the Torridon Activities team can lead you straight to the heart of the action.
This may be on the slopes of Liathach across the loch from the hotel or high on Beinne Eighe, the UK’s oldest nature reserve.
This is natural territory both for red deer and our activities team and while the rutting stags are the big Autumn attraction, you are also likely to see other Highland wildlife such as mountain hares, grouse, ptarmigan or even a Golden Eagle.
In addition to the safari walks led by Torridon Activities, there is a guided trek organised by the National Trust for Scotland next month.
