The Highlands is arguably the best location in the UK to photograph Black Grouse. The lek (display area) is on short heather, which ensures unobstructed views of the Grouse with fantastic moorland and mountain backdrops. A permanent wooden 3 person hide is set on the edge of the lek with lots of opportunities for displaying, fighting and close-up shots. You will be met nearby and guided to the hide, which involves a 10 minute uphill walk over rough ground.
Please note: There is a very slight possibility that the birds are frightened off by a predator and even the weather can have an effect on their behaviour. If you are travelling some distance we would therefore recommend booking two days or more to ensure you give yourself the best possibility of securing successful images.
