Scotland has such a diverse range of flora and fauna, differing as you travel around the country.
Spending time watching animals is great fun, educational and good for the mind. I've learnt a lot about the habits and habitats of many of the creatures I see regularly - even if they're just in my garden!
And the simple pleasure of walking amongst the forests, glens and along the coast is, for me, priceless.
These are some of my favourite experiences and memories.
