Description
The area around Drumlanrig is rich in wildlife with so many different habitats for plants and animals to call home. The Country Park is open all year round for visitors to enjoy and with wildlife interest 12 months of the year this makes Drumlanrig Country Park well worth a visit at any time. One of the highlights of a visit to Drumlanrig is the opportunity to see our native Red Squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris). The best time to see this delightful animal is during the summer months when the adults are busy with young and are more preoccupied with the jobs of parenthood than the many eyes watching them. Rivers, lochs, woodland, farmland and parkland all within minutes walk from the car-park help to make this a worthwhile trip for everyone with an interest in wildlife at any time of the year.
