We’ve teamed up with the national tourism board VisitScotland and leading tour operator McKinlay Kidd to provide a wildlife-themed trip to Scotland’s Cairngorms – a haven for all types of wildlife. 

This special prize combines two unforgettable Scottish wildlife experiences in the spectacularly beautiful Cairngorms National Park.

The first experience is a day out with a wildlife guide exploring the highlights of the Cairngorms area. 

The second is an evening visit to a hide to view badgers and pine martens in their natural habitat.

Also included are three nights’ bed-and-breakfast accommodation and a contribution to travel expenses.

The Cairngorms National Park is the largest national park in the UK and home to a quarter of Scotland’s native woodland.

Habitats vary from wild tundra on the high mountain tops to ancient woods of Caledonian pine, and from heather-covered moorland to majestic glens.

Here there are incredible opportunities to get up close and personal with some of the wildest Scottish residents.

The overall winner and nine runners-up will also receive a copy of a stunning new hardback book from naturalist and TV producer Stephen Moss and award-winning wildlife photographer Laurie Campbell.

Tying into a major TV series from BBC Scotland, Highlands: Scotland’s Wild Heart follows a year in the lives of a stellar cast of wild animals in this beautiful yet rugged landscape where only the toughest survive.
