Review of otter status along the River Dee and its tributaries
Otters are found throughout the River Dee catchment from the mouth of the River Dee to many of the high-altitude lochs in the Grampian mountains. Key habitats include small streams, mires and marshes, for both foraging and breeding. Otters can move over long stretches of the River Dee and its tributaries.
