    Now if that was me finding that and not scaring it off,I'd say that was a good omen.

    Great shot.

    I was thinking something along those line too cuddlepop but we'll leave that for another thread

    ps, we did scare it off but not before I got those 2 pics first. There was another one there too but it bolted as soon as we came into the layby

    we saw loads of deer on the mountains around Drummochter - assume they were all on the move looking for food

    here's some regular deer

    Wow what a great shot and a rare chance to see a white deer. Not everyone makes the same decision with such rare animals!

    Did the place at Berridale with the windmill not breed white deer many years ago?

    I didnt look at the link but it sounds as if a similar animal may have been killed. These white deer are sometimes a target for poachers.
    Here is a link to some footage of a white Stag last year.
