Red deer rut events

The rut is a spectacular annual event and there are many places throughout Scotland that people can watch the stags display and battle for dominance.

The red Deer Rut occurs every Autumn. Stags will battle for dominance and the chance to mate. For places to watch the rut please see the links opposite. All these organisations hold information on events they organise for anyone wishing to see this spectacle.

Please remember if are you are going to watch deer (or any other animal) it is important to give them space and respect.  Disturbance at this highly charged time of year can be dangerous and affect the behaviour of the deer.

If your organisation wishes to arrange events around the Rut please let us know by contacting either Jessica Findlay  or Sue Dymond.
