RSPB Visitor Centre Loch Garten

RSPB  Visitor Centre Loch Garten

Description

Loch Garten is famous for being the ancestral home to the UK's ospreys - but it's so much more! Surrounded by the largest remnant of ancient Caledonian pine forest, in the shadow of towering Cairngorm mountains, there is something for all the family at the Loch Garten Osprey Centre. You can get close to iconic Highland wildlife here - ospreys (of course!), red squirrels, crested tits, crossbills, bugs, lizards, dragonflies and loads more...not to mention the wonderful Scots pines and the other species which make up the rich Caledonian pineforest. Get connected to nature by bug hunting, dissecting owl pellets, emptying our moth trap, filling our bird feeders, building an osprey nest, checking out our camera-traps or simply watching the ospreys, small birds and red squirrels. Grab a coffee and sandwich and sit outside watching the birds come to our feeders, while the kids entertain themselves at the nature kitchen.
Our visitor centre is fully-staffed with enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff and volunteers and we're waiting to make your visit a memorable one, for all the family. Regular pineforest video presentations are given and in addition to views out onto the osprey nest, close-up hi-def images of all the nest activity are streamed live to the centre.

The Loch Garten Osprey Centre shop stocks gifts, books, bird and wildlife-care, binoculars, telescopes, hot drinks, sandwiches, snacks and ice-creams.
