Welcome to Wild Alba Glenesk

We offer a range of wildlife and heritage tours where, in a 4×4 vehicle, we will take you off road and into the heart of the Angus Glens.

You’ll experience first-hand how to read the landscape unveiling the stories of Glenesk and exploring a landscape steeped in heritage.  You’ll enjoy the array of stunning wildlife, including iconic birds of prey, waders, upland mammals and birds and a range of beautiful plants, some of which only live in the ancient woodland and upland habitats such as those found in the Glen.

“Beautiful old birch trees line the winding road and lead you into an

incredible landscape.  It doesn’t matter what time of year or what weather, as

Glenesk has an air of fascination that draws you in, it’s a special place.”

Our ‘Secrets of the Glen’ full and half day safaris are firm favourites with our guests, along with The Red Deer Rut tours in October.  With over 50,000 acres of Cairngorms National Park at our disposal, we’re spoilt for choice!
