As the air turns crisp and the foliage transforms into a kaleidoscope of colours, Highland Holidays invites you to embark on a captivating Autumn Treasure Hunt.

Nature’s treasures await, from acorns and conkers to the breathtaking array of leaves gracefully descending from the trees. Venture out into our parks and let the magic of autumn unfold before your eyes.

Unveiling the Hidden World of Fungi and Lichens

Autumn is not just a season; it’s full of wonders waiting to be discovered. Take a closer look at fallen trees, where a world of vibrant fungi awaits your exploration. Capture the stunning colours with your camera and share your finds with us by tagging #HighlandHolidays in your snaps.

Birch trees, adorned in their golden years, often play host to the birch polypore, a striking white bracket fungus. Once you’ve spotted one, you’ll likely discover more as your eyes become attuned to the subtle beauty of the forest.

To enhance your treasure hunt, check out these handy identification sheets that guide you in capturing the perfect photo:

In the midst of mushrooms and fungi, you might just encounter some enchanting woodland folk. After all, mushrooms and fairies are known to go hand in hand.

At Highland Holidays, we cherish and respect the natural beauty that surrounds us. As you embark on your Autumn Treasure Hunt, we kindly ask you to adhere to our “Leave No Trace” policy. Take only photographs and leave behind nothing but footprints and memories. Let’s ensure the enchantment of our parks remains undisturbed for future adventurers to discover.


Join us in celebrating the wonders of autumn, where every rustle of leaves and hidden fungi tells a story of the Highland magic waiting to be uncovered.
