Loch of the Lowes

East Perthshire


Loch of the Lowes is included in a chain of lochs called the Lunan Lochs, including; Craiglushs, Betterstone, Clunie, and Marlee, connected by the Lunan Burn. This burn drains into the River Isla off the River Tay. This type of habitat, such as the Lunan Lochs, is rare within the United Kingdom. Visit the Wildlife Reserve between April and August to see the breeding ospreys who have nested at the Loch for over 50 years. You can also spot a range of other animals, including red squirrels, woodpeckers, beavers, birds, and many more. Binoculars, telescopes, and live video footage are all featured in the hide, and in the visitor center, you can interact with displays to find out the inspiring stories of the Loch.
