The Burn of Brown which runs through Glen Brown into the Burn of Lochy skirts the foot of the Cromdale Hills to join the River Avon at Inverlochy.
Red Deer can often be seen in herds of fifty or more in this deserted glen where Curlew, Lapwing, Snipe and Oystercatcher nest in the spring. Black Grouse can occasionally be spotted in fields beside the Burn of Brown or amongst junipers on the hillside. The coniferous woods to the south of the glen are home to Roe Deer and Pine Marten.
Field Vole are busy both day and night feeding on grasses and herbaceous plants. Look out for their tracks and tunnels in deep grass.
The smallest mammal in the United Kingdom is also found here. Active at all hours, the Pygmy Shrew searches for spiders and beetles among grass roots and scrub.
Molehills are a regular feature of pastures and deciduous woodland, particularly during the spring when the male abandons his territory and tunnels considerable distances in search of a mate.
Resident birds in the more open glens include Collared Dove, Goldfinch, Linnet, Mistle Thrush, Starling and Yellowhammer, with summer visiting Grey and Pied Wagtail, Meadow Pipit, Skylark, Stonechat and Whinchat.
