Where Eagles Soar

Glenshee is home to an abundance of unique flora and fauna due to the areas complex bedrock and the high fertility of most of its soils.
Eagles soaring around the heights of Glas Maol and Cairnwell are a common occurrence, and the area has a higher population density of ptarmigan than recorded anywhere else in the world, red grouse and mountain hares are abundant. Dotterel, golden plover, ring ouzels, and occasionally snow buntings can be found breeding, whilst peregrine falcons, kestrels, red kites, tawny owls and ravens hunt the area. As well as the nature reserve at Caenlochan, there are Sites of Special Scientific Interest on the area at Glas Choire and nearby on Cairnwell.
