Brown Hare

Brown Hare are superbly adapted to feeding in the open. Large eyes set on the side of their heads give almost 360 degree vision and the ability to see behind themselves. Large ears enable them to detect the slightest sound of approaching danger.

During the day Brown Hare lie up in forms on the edges of woodland and scrub, leaving in the early evening to move as far as 2 km to their chosen feeding area. They can be found throughout Glenlivet Estate on lower ground. Although they are preferentially nocturnal, our long summer days give ample opportunities to see them during daylight hours.

Brown Hare can be distinguished from their cousins, the Mountain Hare by their longer ears and brown winter coats.
