  • Great visit. Got to see the Osprey pair nesting and coming back with freshly caught trout. There are 3 good hides with provided scopes if you don't have your own. You can borrow a backpack if you want to do some exploration. Good gift/visitor centre which has information, kids experiments and reference ornithology materials. Helpful Scottish Wildlife staff. £4 for adults without Scottish Wildlife membership. Snacks available at reasonable prices.
  • Absolute treat for animal lovers. Beautiful park, friendly staff and the opportunity to see rare wildlife species such as Osprey, red squirrels and otters. £5 concession fee which goes to a good cause...
  • Lovely little centre run by very friendly and knowledge staff. Kids are well catered for and there are plenty of powerful scopes in the hides. We also saw the nesting ospreys, which was a bonus.
  • The wildlife is fantastic, different types of bird's and also red squirrels, the main equipment binoculars and camera.
  • Fantastic facilities. The hides are brilliant. All offer great views of the loch and of course the star attractions themselves: the ospreys
