The Watcher

July 2017 Edition


With the Cairngorm Mountains, Monadliaths, Cromdale Hills, Speyside and Dava Ways on its doorstep, The Grant Arms Hotel at Grantown-on-Spey is the perfect base for a Walking Holiday. Itís not just the fifty refurbished rooms, the good food, the comfortable public areas and bar. Itís also things like the Drying Room, Boot Wash, Information Centre, Nature Library and the regular Programme of Walks and Talks which make the Grant Arms the perfect place to stay.

July 2017 Edition

As we move on in to July, with plenty of newly fledged young about, bird numbers at this time of year are at a peak. Wader chicks already growing rapidly in the fields and many birds well in to their second or even third clutches......

June 2017 Edition

The Swifts are busily wheeling around Grantown now so it must be summer!  They actually nest in the hotel roof so you will be greeted by their evocative screams from dusk to dawn.  

May 2017 Edition

By now the last of the summer migrants should have arrived, with the return of Spotted Flycatchers usually heralding the end of another spring migration in the Highlands, these birds have shown a remarkable shift north. Now scarce in England but an increasingly  common sight in Highlands woodlands, especially around Strathspey.......

April 2017 Edition

With the clocks now pushed forward and rapidly lengthening days, spring is truly in the Highland air. The first returning Ospreys are busy repairing nests, Divers and Slavonian Grebes are now back on their breeding lochs and waders have returned to the farmland and moors.
