Nature trails

We have six waymarked trails around Crathes estate, with a wide range of habitats including woodland, marsh, ponds and streams. You’ll have the chance to spot a rich variety of wildlife along the way, including buzzards, herons and kingfishers around the Coy Burn – and don’t forget to visit our newly opened wildlife hide.

Our North-East Ranger Service is based at Crathes, so have a chat with one of our rangers and they’ll tell you what to look out for. Keep your eyes open for pine martens, otters, red kites, badgers, roe deer and red squirrels – they’re all frequently spotted in the grounds.
