Loch of the Lowes Visitor Centre and Wildlife Reserve

Cateran Trail

Covering 130 hectares of land near to Dunkeld, Loch of the Lowes Visitor Centre and Wildlife Reserve is an excellent day out in Scotland, whatever your age. Open all year round; there is plenty to see and do in the beautiful area.

During the spring & summer months, the famous Ospreys can be found in the wildlife reserve, and interactive exhibits tell the fascinating story of these creatures. Over the winter, ducks, geese, red squirrels, fallow deer and nuthatches can be spotted. As Loch of The Lowes Visitor Centre is just a short drive from Dalnoid Cottages And Treehouses, it is the perfect family trip on a visit to Scotland.

The Wildlife At Loch Of The Lowes

Nature lovers will be amazed at the huge range of wildlife that can be found at this much-loved reserve. The visitor centre is the ideal place to observe and learn about the beautiful creatures that reside in the beautiful Scottish countryside. There are binoculars, telescopes, viewing windows and live videos that can be used to discover the animals in the wildlife reserve.

The Ospreys are the star attraction, with a pair of breeding Ospreys returning to Loch of the Lowes every year for summer. This wildlife reserve has played a hugely important role in Osprey breeding in the UK after they were driven to extinction in the country back in the 19 th century.

Visiting Loch of the Lowes Visitor Centre and Wildlife Reserve

Visitors are welcome to explore the centre any time of year, but there are some highlights to look out for during certain months;

  • April to August is the best time to see Ospreys.
  • April to September is popular for beavers.
  • Red squirrels, wildfowl, birds and deer, can be seen all year round.

The interactive displays and exhibits are both exciting and educational and will be loved by children and adults of all ages.
