Feeding Platforms at Dolphin View Cottages, Hillockhead

These feeding platforms are set up at Dolphin View Cottages, Hillockhead on The Black Isle, near Inverness in Scotland. With incredible views of the Moray Firth and Chanonry Point, this property is owned by my friend, Tim Stenton, and I have spent many weeks up in this beautiful location. The area is excellent for a range of wildlife and we have set trail cameras all over the site and surrounding area, as well as setting up cameras. This feeding platform is on the main complex and can attract a huge number of birds in the day (especially in the winter) and you may see the local pine marten at night (as well as the local cat!)

 

You can find out more about Dolphin View Cottages, on the website.
