Apart from a good bird watching spot, Loch of the Lowes is also a good place for wildlife photography. The location allows photographers to come up close and personal with a number of creatures.
The visitor centre has a viewing window overlooking a well-equipped feeding station where one can sit down and photograph woodland birds such as Yellowhammer and Great Spotted Woodpecker. Red Squirrels visit the feeding station on a regular basis, sometimes chasing each other, burying nuts or running along the rope strung between the trunks of surrounding trees.
Loch of the Lowes offers the opportunity to use the reserve’s one man hide for a whole day. This will give an opportunity for the photographers to take photos of birds and mammals in their natural environment.
