Forest Holidays is delighted to see that a group of playful pine martens has decided to set up home in Strathyre. Pine martens are an iconic woodland species and, as members of the mustelid family, they are close cousins to otters, badgers and weasels. They are roughly the size of domestic cats, with red-brown fur and a distinctive yellow ‘bib’ marking on their throats. Though they are thriving in Scotland, pine martens are in danger of extinction in England and Wales and are one of the rarest native mammals in Great Britain. We set out to capture these elusive, cheeky creatures on film!
