Details

The Snaizeholme red squirrel viewing area lies in the heart of the Widdale red squirrel reserve. Coniferous woodland is ideal habitat for red squirrels however they can be difficult to see in such densely planted woodland. The Snaizeholme viewpoint and surrounding woodland offer an excellent chance of getting superb views of red squirrels as they visit a feeder in a woodland clearing, with luck you may also see Roe Deer along with a variety of woodland birds such as Siskin, Lesser Redpoll and even perhaps even the Common Crossbill. This can be a 2.5 mile circular walk but there is a steep climb out of the dale, so a walking stick and boots maybe required
