Best time to go
The best time to go is just about any time. Each season has its own special feeling.
March–April: Late snows on the high hills and the clear winter air makes for sparklingly clear landscapes and photos.
May-June: Bluebells and spring flowers and the first flush of luminous green as the trees burst forth.
July–August: Summer days, birds galore, the start of the heather colours on the hills.
September–October: Autumn tints increasingly form the colour palette, the haunting sounds of deer rutting, and the autumn mists adding to the mystery of the hills.
