Red squirrels. Red deer. Red kites. In a land made of green glens and hills, it’s no wonder our most iconic animals are the ones that stand out. You can see these cute, majestic, and fierce animals throughout the countryside in the South as we have worked hard to make sure their habitats have been preserved. Discover where you can spot these and other extraordinary animals.

Where to Visit?

Head to Castle Douglas to see the recovering Red Kite population, or to Cheviot Hills for a very close encounter with an alpaca!
