We are saying Thank You!

We have been very lucky this year with the refurbishment of the visitor centre at Montrose Basin and it has been great to see the reaction from everyone!

The refurbishment couldn’t have been done without funding through the Heritage Lottery Fund, so this December we are saying a massive thank you to all the National Lottery Players and taking part in their ‘Thank You’ campaign.

From the 11th to the 17th of December 2017, we are offering FREE entry to the visitor centre with every National Lottery ticket; all you have to do is show us your ticket!

Even in the winter months, Montrose Basin is still an incredible place to visit.  We have lots of different species of duck including wigeon, pintail, goldeneye and eider, plenty of waders; redshank, lapwing and curlew as well as daily visits from the kingfisher!

Our winter opening hours are Friday – Monday, 10.30am–4pm with the hides around the reserve open all the time.
