To celebrate the start of the Roe deer buck season in Scotland, J Boult Designs is featuring knowledgeable writer and photographer, Linda Mellor and her thoughts on Roe deer in Scotland.    Photo Copyright Linda Mellor Roe Deer in Scotland by Linda Mellor Perhaps Roe deer are a species of deer most closely associated to children’s fairy tales and the Disney film, Bambi. They certainly were for me. At the age of 4 or 5 my mother took me to the cinema to see Bambi and sealed my lifelong love of deer, in particular, Roe deer. As a photographer they...
