When ospreys returned to breed in Scotland, this ancient Caledonian pineforest is where they chose to come. The Loch Garten Osprey Centre provides fantastic views of these magnificent birds on the nest, as well as close up views thanks to our non-invasive CCTV camera.
The reserve also has some excellent walks, with the chance to see red squirrels, dragonflies and crested tits. Early in spring, join us for Caper-watch and see the spectacular display of the capercaillie, Scotland’s largest grouse.
The centre is great for all ages, with a quiz for children, drawing table for tots and low-set telescopes and binoculars. Friendly and knowledgeable staff are always on hand to help and a programme of guided walks are available between May and August.
Entry charges: adults £5, concessions £3, under 16s £2. Family ticket £10 (up to two adults and four children). RSPB and Wildlife Explorer members are free.
