Safaris / Wildlife

Thanks to our prime location in the heart of the Highlands, guests at the Dunalastair Hotel Suites are never too far away from a rare glimpse at Scottish wildlife, making us a popular destination for safari holidays in Scotland.

Whether you’re exploring the majestic Black Wood of Rannoch, or hiking around the vast, sprawling wilderness of Rannoch Moor, there’s always the likelihood that you might spy anything from roe deer to red squirrels, along with beautiful birds of prey, and other seldom-seen creatures, all roaming free in their natural habitat.

Not that you need leave anything to chance on your Scottish wildlife holiday. A short distance from our boutique hotel suites in Kinloch Rannoch, you’ll find guided tours, bird watching centres, and full-on jeep wildlife safaris which take you deep into the home of Scotland’s most stunning wild animals.
