WHAT YOU WILL NEED.

By their very nature the guided visits involve walking and in this country you can often have four seasons in one day so consequently you will need to be prepared.

The following list is not exhaustive and should be used as a guide only;

  • Footwear appropriate to the terrain and season – boots, sturdy footwear etc.
  • Waterproofs.
  • Hat and gloves.
  • Sun cream.
  • Insect repellant.
  • Snacks and drinks.
  • Any personal medication.
  • Camera.
  • Binoculars.

Specific guidance on what you may need can be provided at the time of booking including lunch options and any parking or other fees.

Guided visits/tours are designed for you to see and experience landscapes and wildlife rather than covering large distances. All clients need to take reasonable responsibility for their own safety and those around them.

Exclusions – Guided visits/tours are not suitable for dogs. Please do not bring dogs with the intention of leaving them in your car especially in summer.

We operate a no smoking policy for the comfort of all staff and clients. Smoking should be confined to areas away from the group outside of the tour times i.e before the tour starts, during the lunch break (if this is appropriate) and at the end of the tour.
