Evening can be the best time to observe these majestic annuals taking part in the autumnal spectacle of the rut, where males compete for females by roaring and, occasionally, locking antlers. Our knowledgeable staff will be on hand to guide you up on to White Edge where the deer can be viewed without being disturbed.
If you have your own binoculars or telescope, bring them along with you. We'll have some pairs that can be shared around.
Dogs are welcome on this walk, provided they are kept on a short lead of less than 2m and remain quiet and under control throughout the event.
Please come dressed appropriately for the weather, in warm clothes and waterproofs with spare layers in a bag. Good, sturdy, waterproof boots with a deep tread and ankle support are recommended. No food or drink is provided, but if you wish you may bring your own.
