RSPB Scotland Loch Lomond

  • About

RSPB Scotland Loch Lomond is a special place for wildlife. Located on the south-east shores of the loch, the site has a variety of habitats from ancient woodlands to wildflower meadows and grasslands. RSPB Scotland has been managing the site in partnership with Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park and Scottish Natural Heritage since 2012, to make it an even better home for nature.

RSPB Scotland Loch Lomond's new visitor hub is open weekends from April to mid-October. The hub offers wildlife information, family nature activities and somewhere to get a hot drink with a beautiful view. Check the Love Loch Lomond What's On for regular nature events and activities.

Guided walks take place at 11am on Saturdays and Sundays and explore different areas of the site. Wellies are essential on the walks because there are no paths in this area yet and the walks go over muddy fields.

Visitor hub opening times:

Saturdays and Sundays from April - October 

10am - 3pm

Guided walk 11am Cost: £5 or £2.50 for kids (RSPB members - 20%)

In spring stroll through sweet smelling bluebell filled woodlands while listening out for tree pipits and wood warblers calling. In summer look out for ospreys soaring high above, while wandering through wildflower meadows.

The Shore Wood path is open at all times. This is accessible via the Aber Right of Way, which starts from the Kilmaronock Millennium Hall in Gartocharn. To reach the Millennium Hall turn off the A811 onto Church Road opposite the House of Darrach. The postcode for the Millennium Hall is G83 8NF. Park at the Millennium Hall car park and follow the Aber Right of Way signpost on the right of the hall. This will take you through fields than can be extremely muddy at times. Follow the signs for Aber Right of Way and Loch Lomond NNR for 20min and you will reach the entrance of RSPB Scotland Loch Lomond.

This nature reserve is important for wildlife. RSPB Scotland welcomes responsible access, in line with the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. During the ground-nesting bird breeding season (1 April to 15 August) we request that you keep your dog close to you, preferably on a short lead, clean up after your dog and that you keep to the paths.
