In the midst of the January lockdown, my family and I booked a late May Bank Holiday staycation to Devon to coincide with my younger brother’s 21st birthday celebrations. Not quite the big trip to the USA that we were hoping for, but it certainly gave us something to look forward to whilst at home.

Leading long-range optic specialists, SWAROVSKI OPTIK, has teamed up with David Lambie and Paul Sharman of SKYEFARI, a specialist wildlife watching tour operator based on the Isle of Skye, to offer top tips for spotting five of the UK’s most elusive wildlife species whilst on a staycation in Scotland this year.
