White-tailed Eagle in Scotland

Science Center Nature Tours

PuffinExecutive Director Iain MacLeod (a native Scot) leads a Natural and Cultural History Tour to Scotland each year (in May or June). These are very personal, small-group tours to various parts of the Scottish Highlands and Islands. Iain is an experienced group tour leader who has organized and led tours of Scotland more than a dozen times. The hotels are chosen by Iain for their comfort, ambiance, hospitality, and excellent food. Iain personally arranges every detail — flights, meals, transportation, and daily destinations. The group size (maximum 12 people), and unhurried pace fosters new friendships, a relaxed atmosphere, and flexibility in the schedule.
