The native red squirrels are abundant in the local woodland although they are more easily spotted at the bird/squirrel tables in nearby gardens. They still have their noticeable long ear tufts which kept them warm in the colder Winter weather but they will be soon be shedding them for a warmer Springtime. The young are born during May/June and are good fun to watch running around the area.

Only about one hours drive away from Camerons Cottage is the seaside town of Nairn on the east coast. It has a wonderful long white clean sandy beach and it is very relaxing to walk along, just listening to the waves pounding on the shore and the seagulls calling overhead. On a clear day like today you can see across to the Black Isle with its snow capped mountains. Facing the beach there is a lovely large open park with paths and plenty of benches and picnic areas to relax in highlighted with colourful seasonal flowers.
