Special Events

Squirrel Cam

At Balmoral we have some very special residents - our red squirrels.

The red squirrel is one of Scotlands favourite mammals but it is declining in numbers and classified as an endangered species. However att Balmoral we are lucky to have several scurries of squirrels living and you can watch them feeding.
