As we move into summer, we keep ourselves very busy at Loch of the Lowes, despite the absence of osprey chicks, with a packed programme of special events. In our constant quest to make nature and wildlife accessible to all, and especially to encourage younger generations to get involved , we try to offer events on a huge range of nature themes. We have art, photography, kids craft, and specialised talks, as well as guided walks , hands on practical days, and much more- why not join us?
