Please note that Yetholm Loch is no longer a Scottish Wildlife Trust Reserve. The 25 year reserve agreement between the Scottish Wildlife Reserve and the 3 owners came to an end on 31st July 2019.
Yetholm Loch, on the edge of the Cheviots, is an important area for breeding and wintering wildfowl. At the southern end of the loch is a wetland habitat of willow carr, fen and swamp that attracts birds such as reed bunting, snipe and curlew. Nationally and locally rare plants grow in this area.
