Bring your little ones to www.rspb.org.uk/days-out/reserves/loch-lomond for National Lottery Open Week between 9 and 17 March and exchange your National Lottery ticket or scratch card for a free mini beast kit.
This reserve is set in a stunning mix of woodlands and wetlands on the bonnie 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. Discover our woodland trail winding through coppiced alder woodland, our viewpoint path with wonderful views of Ben Lomond and Conic Hill and our Shore wood Path perfect for birdspotting in ancient woodland and wetlands.
Each season brings with it its own nature spectacle and the opportunity to experience something new. In spring, the air is filled with birdsong as they compete to establish territories and attract a mate and you stroll through the woodlands in spring to witness carpets of sweet smelling bluebells. In Winter watch the sun rise over the stunning hills and see thousands of geese fly off in the early morning or watch flocks of long-tailed tits calling from tree to tree in the woodland. If you're really lucky you might catch a glimpse of an otter close to one of the waterways or a red squirrel high up in the trees.
Loch Lomond is the ideal place for families to go on an adventure. Peer into the Mini-beast Mansion, go hunting for butterflies and frogs or even build a den in the woods. You'll also find fun, self-guided activities like bug hunting, birdwatching, or explorer kits to hire (available when Nature Hub is staffed), Pushchair-friendly trails and pond dipping available from April until mid-October at weekends.
So come along and take a look for yourself and enjoy mini-beast hunting in exchange for a National Lottery ticket or scratch card and enjoy a wild adventure at this beautiful reserve!
