From tomorrow the visitor centre will be switching over to winter opening hours.
These are Friday-Sunday from 10:30am-4pm, until 1st March when we revert to daily opening. This means we will not be open tomorrow but will re-open on winter hours from Friday.
Monday to Thursday when the visitor centre is closed we will endevour to open the Crannog Hide (and once the refurbishment is complete, the Observation Hide) and the toilets, provided that a member of staff is available to do so. We apologise in advance if there are days when this is not possible.
We’ve reduced the admission prices for the winter season to £3.50 Adults, £2.50 Concessions, £7 Family and Wildlife Trust members & children under 16 are FREE
The feeding station is busier than ever at this time of year with our resident Red squirrels putting in regular daily appearances, plus a whole host of woodland birds including winter visitors such as the Brambling and Redpoll.
Out on the loch we’ve sighted a wide variety of wildfowl over the past week or so, including a pair of Whooper Swans, large skeins of Greylag & Canada Geese plus Pink-Footed Geese flying over. Duck highlights have been half a dozen or so Goldeneye, a few Wigeon and a Teal on the 26th.
So there’s plenty to see whatever the time of year, and where better to sit and enjoy a warming cup of tea or coffee than in front of the viewing window?
