Saving Scotland's Red Squirrels

Where to see red squirrels

Scotland is home to around 120,000 red squirrels and, with 75% of the UK population found here, you stand a better chance of seeing them here than almost anywhere else in the country. The map below highlights just some of the locations where you can see red squirrels. If you are lucky enough to spot one, please remember to submit a squirrel sighting following your visit - it can make a big difference!

Seen a red or grey squirrel recently? Saving Scotland's Red Squirrels needs your help. Please report your squirrel sighting using our dedicated online sightings page. This will help us get a clear picture of red and grey squirrel distribution across Scotland.
