wood­land in Bri­tain and many of Bri­tain’s purest fish­ing rivers.

Golden ea­gles, pere­grine fal­cons and osprey cruise its ma­jes­tic peaks while roe deer, rein­deer, moun­tain hare and red squir­rels in­habit the woods and moor­land. Other rare birds in­clude cross­bills and caper­cail­lie, the largest species of grouse, with its dra­matic fan-tailed mat­ing dis­play.

My ex­pe­ri­ences have all been based at Glen­more Lodge, the Scot­tish na­tional train­ing cen­tre for out­door ac­tiv­i­ties, an in­sti­tu­tion that can­not be praised too highly. From here, the moun­tains, both in win­ter and in sum­mer, are your oys­ter and, most im­por­tantly, you will al­ways be in safe hands.
