Loch of the Lowes reserve covers 130 hectares including woodland, freshwater loch and the visitor centre and hides.
All year round the reserve boasts sightings of red squirrels, mallards, swans, great-crested grebes, fallow deer and great-spotted woodpeckers.
In autumn and winter, the reserve is home to Canada and greylag geese, as well as wigeon, tufted, golden eye and mallard ducks, grey heron and much more.
During the spring and summer months the osprey return to their nest just 150m away from the hides. The loch also hosts breeding swallows and goosander, as well as garden birds in the woodland and 3 species of bat.
Our four-star visitor centre offers a great day out for all the family in Perthshire.
