Frequently Asked Questions

How large are tour groups?

Our tours are private. There won't be anyone but you, your group, and the wonderful wildlife of Edinburgh.

What will I see?

We aim to see between 60 and 70 species on a day-tour.

For specific species, please see our Tours and About Us pages.

All our tours are tailored to your requests, so please contact us with your species wishlist.

Do you cater for photographers?

Our tours provide excellent opportunities for wildlife photographers. Example photographs can be seen on our Google Reviews page.

How do I book a tour?

Simply fill in the details on our Book Your Tour page to receive your quote within 24 hours.

What about transport?

Our tours make use of Edinburgh's excellent public transport and private hire systems.

Transport between the arranged start- and end-point of the tour is included in your quote.

Is food and drink included as part of the tour?

We don't provide food and drink ourselves, but we'll pass plenty of cafes and shops as part of the tour. Since looking for wildlife can be thirsty work, we recommend that all guests bring at least one bottle of water each.

What is your cancellation policy?

Any cancellation by the tour guest must be made in writing via email. Cancellation within 60 days of the tour start-date will result in full payment being made to the tour operator; the date of the email will determine the cancellation charges applicable. Individual guests can cancel up to 30 days before the tour date; after this time, their fee must also be paid in full.


Scotland’s unpredictable weather means that some of our birding takes place in the rain. Poor weather cannot be a cause of cancellation by the guest, except in the case of weather warnings, which are considered force majeure, and will result in a full refund including deposit. Health emergencies will also result in a full refund to the client.

Any cancellation by the tour operator will result in a full refund including deposit. By confirming a tour with Edinburgh Birding & Nature Tours, you agree to these conditions.

What is your ethical policy?

Edinburgh Birding and Naturre Tours is commited to ethical ecotourism. Each of our tours is founded upon respect for the natural world.

We never disturb animals or otherwise damage the beautiful nature of Edinburgh.
