Where’s the BBC Two series Winterwatch filmed in 2014?

The main filming location for this years live broadcasts is the Cairngorm Mountains, in the east of the Scottish Highlands.

This area was chosen by the BBC for the 2014 series of Winterwatch, largely due to it being one of the coldest places in the United Kingdom. It’s believed the shows producers had made this choice in the hope of Cairngorm receiving some snowfall just before, or during the four nights of broadcasting.

However, due to Britain’s wet but unseasonably mild temperatures this winter, any significant covering of snow currently looks unlikely. UPDATE, it’s actually started snowing during the broadcast of Tuesday nights show.

In addition to the shows main Cairngorm base, each episode also features multiple, pre-recorded segments from around the UK including Brighton and the Caledonian Forest.

Winterwatch 2014 which is hosted by Chris Packham, Martin Hughes-Games and Michaela Strachan, airs for four nights on BBC Two from Monday the 20th to Thursday the 23rd of January.
