This beautiful inland loch is a reservoir for Angus and Dundee. During the summer, the area is home to breeding songbirds, and in winter, large numbers of wintering birds, particularly greylag geese, visit the reserve.
There are two hides on the banks of the loch, which can be accessed by separate paths. The hide on the east shore is wheelchair accessible.
Scottish Water (the landowner) let out fly-fishing by boat to Lintrathen Angling Club from April to October. The Scottish Wildlife Trust does NOT issue permits.
The reserve is adjacent to Bridgend of Lintrathen, 7 miles west of Kirriemuir in Angus. It lies just off the B951.
Roadside car parking is available at GR NO276557 off a minor road to the west of the loch. A forest track leads to the hide. The second hide can be accessed by parking in a small layby (for two cars) off the minor road to the east of the loch. Go through the gate on the opposite side of the road to get to the hide, which is wheelchair accessible.
The hide on the east shore is wheelchair accessible.
