Muir of Dinnet National Nature Reserve

Visit Muir of Dinnet National Nature Reserve

Muir of Dinnet blends woodland, heath, open water and an impressive example of nature’s sculptural work, all on one site. Visit the Burn O’Vat and feel the rock walls swallow you up in their damp embrace, cutting you off from the outside world. Elsewhere, wander through birch woodlands, watch for the flash of a damselfly’s wings or savour the peace and tranquillity of a summer reflection in the clear water of the lochs.

Muir of Dinnet is one of the nine National Nature Reserves in and around the Cairngorms National Park – places where you can enjoy the
best of the Park’s wildlife and landscape. Four trails, all clearly marked, will help you explore. You choose whether you want a half-hour stroll, or a half-day’s walk round one of the lochs.

For more information read the reserve leaflet or have a look at the NNR website.
