Description: There are a number of different watch points that we can use depending on client mobility. Some can be reached after only a short walk from the car, whilst others may require around a 30-45-minute walk on either flat ground or a steady slope. The location chosen on any given day will depend on the weather, client mobility and our knowledge of the best places to view at the time. Whichever location is chosen, all are surrounded by fantastic views of the surrounding countryside and will afford sightings of other wildlife at the watch point or during the walk in.
