Fallow Deer

One of the best places to see fallow deer is around the edges of the Beinn nan Losgann forestry which lies on the right of the road out of Kilchoan, as it climbs towards the Kilmory turn. These two were grazing in the valley of the Allt nan Gabhar, the stream of the goat, and, because we walk quietly....

....they weren't aware of our approach, becoming at one point more concerned with something further up the glen.

Even when they did see us, by which time we were standing very still, they weren't too bothered, but there always seems to be a trigger with deer when they suddenly decide we're unfriendly and....

....make off, clearing any obstacles with graceful ease.
