Insh Marshes, Kingussie, Inverness-shire, PH21 1HP

    The Inch Marches is a large wetland area designated as a RSPB Bird Reserve.

    One of Europe's most important wetlands, Insh Marshes is a popular spring nesting site for goldeneyes. You're also likely to see lapwings, redshanks and curlews, as well as oystercatchers, snipe and wigeon. The marshes flood in winter and provide roosting and feeding for flocks of whooper swans and greylag geese.

    Visit between November to March to see over-wintering swans and April to June to see breeding waders.

    Facilities include a car park, picnic area, information point, birdwatching hides and three nature trails.
