    Deer species near Mallaig , Highlands

    Just after a bit of information on which species are present near Mallaig.
    I know there is Red deer in the area but are there any sika or roe?

    Any info appreciated or pics from the area.

    red, occasional roe and an isolated Sika population which originated from Morar Lodge. This popp never spread in the same way the Loch Ness, kin tyre ones did.

    I've spent a fair amount of time in and around the area, and I've only ever seen Red on the hill, but those seem to be fairly numerous. I'm sure there are some Roe around too, I've seen signs of them fraying on trees and fence posts. Not seen, or heard of, Sika but I'd happily accept there are some.

    i've got some evidence in the freezer!

    the Sika haven't spread much from the original site.

    don't expect big roe but there are odd ones.

    I have seen the sika in the area, +1 with BS. reckoned locally to be 60-80 animals.
