Red Deer, Loch Assynt, Scotland by EuropeTrotter

It’s the undisputed Monarch of the Glen !
Red deer are Scotland’s largest surviving native wild land mammal. Males are called stags and have antlers up to a metre long. Stags live in small wandering groups, except during the rut when they become solitary and fight other stags for the control of a hind herd.There are large numbers of red deer in Scotland – a problem for re-growth of native woods, but a bonus for watchers who like to see the herds.
