This web site is about the wildlife, particularly the mammals, of the Glen Affric National Nature Reserve area in the north west Highlands of Scotland, UK; and the equipment I use to search for them, which is chiefly trail cameras.

I hope you find the site useful and informative; and please contact me if you have any questions that I haven't already covered.
