Preparing for our golden anniversary of ospreys at Loch of the Lowes

In 1969, fifty years ago next year, the Scottish Wildlife Trust finalised the deal to purchase the Loch of the Lowes in Perthshire to to create a nature reserve protecting its important habitats and varied birdlife.

Coincidentally, a few months later a pair of ospreys turned up at the reserve and the rest, as they say, is history!

As we prepare for a year of celebrations including special events to make the reserve’s 50th anniversary we are delving into the archives to find out as much about that history as we can. This is where you can help.

We know a great deal about the history from past staff, long standing volunteers and paperwork but we’re sure there is more out there. Can you help us to tell the story of Loch of the Lowes?

If you have any photos of important events, anecdotes, poems, publications or knowledge of the reserve please email us at lochofthelowes@scottishwildlifetrust.org.uk with the subject line ‘Lowes@50’.

Thanks in advance!
