Now I'm really jealous - we stayed in a cottage overlooking Loch Ness in march and would have loved to have spotted a pine marten. WE had to be content with deer, a hare and pheasants in the garden. Obviously booked the wrong cottage!

Was it filmed from inside or using a remote camera?

Oops Sue, you may be even more jealous now when I tell you to take a look at the name of the holiday cottage where this was taken - you'll find it on the YouTube link. I really hope it wasn't the one you were at - I'd be very jealous for you then!

Sorry Sue, forgot to add, I never took this video footage but my guess is that back in 2006 it was probably taken with a handheld camera from inside as you can hear soft voices.

No it wasn't the same cottage. I thought the video must have been taken from indoors but then someone said the pine marten was fascinated by the camera and it seemed to come very close.
