Directions

Road Directions

The mudflats of Caerlaverock provide a winter feast for birds like barnacle geese, bar tailed godwit and knot. Arrive at dusk in early summer and listen to the eerie chorus of natterjack toads as they compete to attract a mate, noisily croaking for attention.

You can visit Caerlaverock all year round and there is a path network with raised boardwalks, a viewing platform, picnic areas, cycle racks and viewing hide. There is a Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust Centre adjacent to the National Nature Reserve.
