This the place to go if you're interested in anything to do with nature or birds.
The Ospreys had just arrived and there was so much excitement ,the views here from the hide are so good with binoculars and scopes provided.
In the visitor center there is so much to see and do,with tea ,coffee and snacks available.
The entry fee of £4.00 is money well spent.
Go and see you will love it.

Walked from Dunkeld town to this visitor centre, lovely scenery, a bit hilly in places. It was good to be here in person,as opposed
to watching online, So thrilling to see red squirrel up close.
Would love to come back when the osprey returns.
