Where did all that lovely weather go?

I’m, once again, living in waterproof overtrousers and boots which have been damp for days. However I can’t help but pity the eagles more than myself as they sit sheltering under branches, holding their wings out to dry.

Despite the dismal weather, our eagles have still been going about their daily business to the delight of cheerful but sodden visitors. We’ve seen Hope and Star bringing food back to nest and the eaglets flying around and even perching closer to us to investigate!

So, even on the dismal days, we are still seeing good action (although tours may be cancelled if the visibility is too bad due to the rain/cloud). We are still running tours until the end of September so to book on one, call the VisitScotland iCentre on 01680 812556.
