Deer Observation Hide at Kilmory - May 2012


The start of May saw the completion of the long talked about deer observation hide at Kilmory.  The hide was built by Sandy Fraser for the Edinburgh University Red Deer Project, funded in part by The Guinness Trust.

There are great views of the Hide from Kilmory Graveyard (c) Ali Morrisbeach and the river all the way up to the mountains in the south and it is a commanding location for getting up close and personal with wildlife.


The researchers have put up a selection of informative posters and would like to encourage everyone to leave their nature observations on the sheet provided as otters, eagles, basking sharks and, of course, deer can regularly be seen from this location.

There is also a new sign at the start of the Glen Shellesder path , informing people that as they carry on to Kilmory, they are entering the deer research area.
