Roe Deer in Dumfries and Galloway

Roe DeerYou are most likely to see Roe deer in the wooded areas of Dumfries and Galloway. A usual sighting is of their rear end as they spot you and scarper away.  

Best place to see them: Roe deer are widespread and common across the region.  Often spotted at Kirroughtree visitor centre, sometimes near the centre and at other times out on the trails - I guess they enjoy the trails at Kirroughtree as much as us! All three species of deer have young in June so please keep dogs under close control when exploring woodland trails.  Being chased is highly stressful for both mother and young.

When is best to see them: Early morning and early evening throughout the year is a great time to look out for these gorgeous animals.
