RSPB Loch Lomond – Visiting

Nature hub opening times: Open 10.00am – 4.00pm 

Toilet with accessible access and baby change is available at the Nature Hub. 


The reserve is set in a stunning mix of woodlands and wetlands on the banks of Loch Lomond. Breathtaking views and a diverse mix of habitats provide an excellent opportunity to view a variety of wildlife including ospreys in the summer and skeins of geese in the winter months. 

In spring stroll through sweet smelling bluebell filled woodlands while listening out for tree pipits and wood warblers calling. In summer look for ospreys soaring high above, while wandering through wildflower meadows. 

Airey Woodland Trail (950m loop) • Viewpoint Path (200m) • Lomond Trail (1.3km) • Shorewood path (1.5km) 

Airey Woodland Trail winds down into the woodland and onto a meadow named Orchid Field due to the abundance of orchids there in summer, while Viewpoint Trail is fully accessible and leads out to stunning views of Ben Lomond and Conic Hill. Lomond Trail takes you through rich woodlands and wetlands before reaching the loch.   

This nature reserve is important for wildlife. RSPB Scotland welcomes responsible access, in line with the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. During the ground-nesting bird breeding season (1 April to 15 August) we request that you keep your dog close to you, preferably on a short lead, clean up after your dog and that you keep to the paths. 

We’d also like to request that you please take your litter home.
