1. Inverness: Rewilding the Scottish Highlands Full-Day Trip
Journey into the vast expanse of the Scottish Highlands to discover two of Scotland's most prominent rewilding centers, Bunloit and Dundreggan. Learn about rewilding firsthand as you observe wildlife, take part in daily duties, and follow winding trails on this exclusive day trip from Inverness. Set off in the morning and take in the sweeping views of the Highlands on your way to your first stop, Bunloit Estate. On arrival, you'll be greeted by the rangers before embarking on a guided tour of the grounds. Visit a peat bog, a forest garden, and keep an eye out for native wildlife. Join the rangers in completing their usual duties on the estate, such as checking footage of traps or mending fences. As you take part, hear more about the rewilding process on the estate and surrounding areas from the passionate rangers. Continue to your next stop, Trees for Life, Dundreggan Rewilding Centre. After lunch (not included), explore the Centre on your own and try out the interactive installations. Listen to local myths and folklore at the audio corner and watch an informative animation from a local artist. Then, join the ranger at reception to begin your tour of the grounds. Visit the tree nursery and marvel at the thousands of saplings ready to be planted or getting ready to start the rooting process. Learn more about the nursery and the biodiversity on the estate from your guide. Hike past the fairy hills, ancient oaks, and regenerating woodlands, and pick up a few Gaelic words along the way. See the language used throughout the estate, from the information points in the center to the signposts marking the route. After leaving the second estate, make one more stop to see the Falls of Foyers, which includes a short but steep walk downhill for the most spectacular views and pictures of the falls. Finally, relax on your way back to Inverness, passing the east side of Loch Ness. Experience the spectacular Scottish Highlands in a hands-on and meaningful way with an exclusive tour curated by GetYourGuide. Explore dense trails with spectacular views, meet the passionate people who make it all possible, and discover how you can incorporate conservationist values at home.
