This wetland reserve is ideal for all the family as the trails, birdwatching hides and visitor centre are all easily accessible.
As one of the few wetlands left in west Scotland, Lochwinnoch is an ideal day out for all the family. It's the perfect spot to watch whooper swans, wigeons and a wide variety of ducks during the winter months. In spring, you won't want to miss the elaborate displays of the great crested grebes.
While you're here, look out for otters, and pop into our visitor centre for a light snack or a browse in the shop which has an array of bird feeding products, books, gifts, clothing, toys and binoculars and telescopes.
We aim to make all of our events suitable for the whole family and run daily activities including pond dipping and bug hunting (April to October), our Monthly Wildlife Challenge, Bird Bingo and much more besides. We have a treetop tower with indoor games and activities - why not try the Treehouse Quiz?
The reserve is open at all times. The visitor centre is open daily from 10 am-5 pm with the exception of 25-26 December and 1-2 January, when the centre is closed.
Free entry to visitor centre, viewing area and shop. Admission fee for nature trails: £3 adult, £2 concessions, £1.50 child, family ticket (minimum three people - one child free with at least one paying adult). Free for RSPB and Wildlife Explorer members.
