Exchanging badger information in the Scottish Highlands
The Strathspey Badger Hide
In mid summer our badgers become fairly inactive and sightings at the hide become infrequent. For this reason we have closed the hide until matters improve which is usually around the end of July. Sorry for the inconvenience.
The hide is an independant project managed under the umbrella of the Boat of Garten Community Company Wildlife Group.
It was was set up in 1996 to provide people of all ages with the chance to watch wild badgers at close quarters.
The hide was built with the help of funds from Scottish Natural Heritage and is now maintained from the donations made by visitors to the hide, suggested as follows:
Adults - £10
Accompanied children - no charge.
Surplus funds are used to help worthy wildlife causes.
The hide is normally open from mid February to the end of November but please be aware that badger watching in high summer can be a very late night affair. Booking enquiries can be made by filling out this form. Please bear in mind that the hide is quite small and will only take six adults plus our guide per visit.
