The Dulaig has a lovely new website!

Posted on

We are delighted to announce that our new website has just been launched today. We did love our old website, and we know from feedback that many guests did too. In the six years since it went live technology has raced on, leaving our old site a bit behind the times, especially as far as photos on i-pads, smart phones etc are concerned. We hope the new site will be as easy for visitors to use as the old one was, and that with better pictures and more information it will give a better idea o...

Don't tell Peter Pheasant!!!
This spectacular bird was spotted by our guests Annette and David Chellingsworth when they visited Glenlivet Distillery. A quick look in our guide to birds book told us he is a Reeves’s Pheasant.

After a battle for “ownership” of the pond the mothers seem to have agreed a truce for now. What will happen next? Watch this space or, even better, come to The Dulaig and see for y...

Wildlife flocks to The Dulaig wildlife pond
Our new wildlife pond works for wildlife! In the few months since we built it the pond has already attracted a wide variety of birds including grey wagtails and a heron. The  pebble beach is a great spot for the baby newts which sun themselves in the shallow water, and blackbirds, doves and other birds love to bathe and drink there too. Red squirrels, pheasants and other birds including up to 17 wild mallard ducks visit the pond every day….. we can’t wait for ...
