COVID UPDATE: The car park and nature trails at the reserve are open but the hides remain closed. We are working to get all facilities open as soon as is safe to do so. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
This shallow loch is situated in a natural basin surrounded by farmland and attracts all types of wildlife.
One favourite summer visitor is the osprey, which you can see fishing around the loch, and in the winter whooper swans and geese fly in. Whatever time of year you visit, make sure you experience the excellent views from the three hides - you're just as likely to see otters, red squirrels and deer as well as wildfowl, not to mention many species of butterflies and dragonflies too.
Many woodland birds can be spotted halfway between the gullery and east hides at the bird feeding station. Nature trails and guided walks are also available.
