Trossachs Bird of Prey Trail

This 25 mile driving route offers the opportunity to see some spectacular wildlife and the change to see potentially 13 different bird of prey species. The bird of prey trail also informs you of the particular species to look for during the different seasons.

Birdwatching at Inversnaid

Tucked away on the north east shores of Loch Lomond, the RSPB Inversnaid reserve is a gem for birdwatchers.

It is possible to see black grouse, pied flycatcher, redstart, twite and wood warblers with each season offering particular highlights.

The West Highland Way passes through the reserve, and there is a nature trail leading from it with wonderful views over the Loch. The Inversnaid Hotel is nearby for refreshments after you have enjoyed your walk.

Visit the RSPB Inversnaid website for more information about how to get here and what to see in the different seasons.
