There’s plenty of Wildlife to be found round and about Highgate Lodge House and the general area. If you’re a keen bird watcher then there are lots to be seen, Kingfishers, Sea Eagles, Shags, Eiders and many more along the shores of Loch Long.
The Loch is home to several schools of porpoises and numerous grey seals. If you fish from Blairmore Pier where the Mackerel are plentiful, watch out for a resident grey seal, who will steal the fish off your line, he knows a free lunch when he sees it!!
Deer are frequent visitors to the garden at Highgate Lodge House. The gallery above shows one of them investigating the BBQ Hut. Perhaps some guests had venison burgers recently and he’s missing a chum!
