Who we are

RSPB Lochwinnoch Nature Reserve is set in a beautiful, rural landscape, only a short distance from Scotland’s urban heartlands. Less than 30 minutes from Glasgow city centre by car or train, this highly accessible nature reserve boasts fantastic opportunities to view common and rare wildlife, and where families can safely explore the outdoors and play in our natural play area. You can leisurely stroll along our high-quality paths surrounded by native flora and fauna, or simply choose to watch the wildlife from one of our many viewpoints or relax in our visitor centre with a hot drink and tasty snack.

Wildlife varies from the common, but no less enjoyable hosts of tits, finches and other birds that frequently visit our feeders, to the more unusual. Hen harrier, whooper swan and smew commonly visit in winter, while vast number of warblers, swifts, swallows and martins return each summer. You might be lucky and see a fishing osprey, or the beautiful courtship dance of our great crested grebes.

Osprey - Len McDonald

On rare occasions you may spot one of the local otters patrolling the loch edges, roe deer grazing on the marsh or bank voles collecting seed from around the feeder screen. In summer, butterflies, damselflies and bumblebees take to the air and in winter you can spot a wide variety of fungi.

All this combines to create a unique and magnificent location, where people and wildlife can thrive together and where fantastic memories can be made.
