Roe Buck

Roe deer are the smallest native deer found in Scotland. They can be found from the banks of Loch Lomond to Caithness. During the summer the roe deer's coat is short, smooth and a glossy red but it the winter it grows longer and rougher to cope with the temperature change. Only the male roe deer have antlers and these are lost in the winter. In summer the deer live singly or in pairs but during the winter they congregate into larger herds.
