Badger Watch at Falls of Clyde 2024

Join us for an evening badger watch at the spectacular Falls of Clyde Wildlife Reserve.

Join us for an evening badger watch at the spectacular Falls of Clyde Wildlife Reserve.

Meet at our visitor centre and join the ranger on a woodland walk to our secret badger sett, looking for tracks, trails and signs along the way! We will wait for emergence of the badgers at our specially constructed badger watching benches in the heart of the reserve, overlooking one of our well used setts. Enjoy the chance to view badgers, bats and other nocturnal creatures as well as the oportunity to connect with nature in the tranquil woodland.

Other stuff:

  • This event is suitable for children aged 8 and above.
  • It's around a 30-45 minute walk to the sett (Approx 1 mile)
  • Our badgers are not captive or fed and are free to roam the reserve as they please.
  • Although we have a very good success rate with our badger watches they are wild creatures and seeing them is not gauranteed.
  • Stout footwear is recommended, and please dress for the weather as this event will be fully outdoors.


Dear Ranger,
Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you and how much my daughter and I enjoyed the badger watch at Falls of Clyde. .. it was a lovely quiet time in the woods. The ranger was very friendly and knowledgeable, and pointed out lots of badger sings on the walk there and back.
We loved seeing all the bats and hearing them on the bat detectors.
We will definitely come back next year! Thank you!
