This half-day workshop is for photographers at intermediate or advanced levels of ability and aims to provide opportunities to photograph some of the most elusive British wildlife. The Cairngorms National Park provides a spectacular home to many wild creatures. The Mountain or Blue Hare is Britain's only native Hare species. In Winter their coats change from a blueish-brown to white, helping to camoflage them against the snow at the higher altitudes where they live. The Ptarmigan is a species of Grouse that also lives at higher altitudes and has the same ability to change its appearance. We are running this workshop once at the start of the Winter change and once nearer the end.

You will need to be reasonably fit to take part in this workshop, as it involves a hill-climb of around 1,000 feet and walking on uneven or slippy ground. The price for this workshop is £85.
