In the year of Natural Scotland

Posted · Add Comment

There is not a better location for a holiday, where you can enjoy all the many aspects of Natural Scotland at its best, than to stay at Cosses Country House . We are part of the UNESCO Biosphere  with its unique combination of special landscapes and wildlife areas, rich cultural heritage.  I drove across it to Thornhill this week and was mesmerised by the beauty of this wildland- (B734/A714/A712/A702).

You can view red squirrels from your bedroom window at Cosses, or woodpeckers, siskins, bullfinches and roe deer. A Tawney owl flew out infront of me as Monty dog and I walked by Crailoch Burn yesterday evening. Guests, this week, reported seeing a  peregrine as they walked along the Ayrshire Coastal path, and they alarmed a pair of hen harriers calling ‘chek-ek-ek-ek at Glenwhan Gardens.

Seals bask on the shores of Ailsa Craig and are often basking on the rocks on the Ayrshire coast at Lendlefoot and the coast is alive with coastal birds.
