I understand that it's possible, but difficult, to visit Scotland and see weasels in the wild and I'm interested in this. I would need to use Scotland's 'Right to Roam' rules because I don't know anyone with substantial amounts of property there.
Is there a particular 'Right to Roam' trail where the chances of observing a weasel, possibly even a weasel family, might be higher than another trail? Or are the trails generally the same with respect to spotting a weasel?
I understand that one must sit very still in an isolated location and wait for a long time before a weasel will pass by, and that overall it's a matter of luck. Is there anything that can be done to improve the chances? I considered bringing some dog treats but then worried that it's probably against the rules. Also is there anything else that can be done so as not to disrupt the other wildlife that may be using the area?
It would be great to select a spot where I could observe both a weasel and a seal (a view over the water). Is there a 'Right to Roam' vantage point that offers that possibility? It's not an 'outdoors' question, it's more about nature along with what can be seen and where.
Question: what's the range of weasel varieties in Scotland? Where are they most likely to be seen? Does time of day may any difference?
