Inchree, about 12 miles south of Fort William on the A82 is a great spot to find native British red squirrels which are an endangered species in the UK due to the arrival 150 years or so ago of the grey squirrel. ┬áGrey squirrels are invasive and as a result tend to push red squirrels out of their natural habitat. ┬áThankfully the grey squirrel has managed to gain a foothold in Scotland (and one or two other places in the UK) and so our native species of squirrel is still doing well.
A visit to Inchree will enable you to see them at close quarters, as long as you are quiet. ┬áJust park in the car park and a few paces away is an area that is used as a feeding and viewing station for the squirrels so you can get some good shots.
Also worth visiting are the falls at Inchree which can be viewed from a vantage point close by. ┬áYou can enjoy a short walk through the forest and take in the falls and the great view from the top.
