As a Young Scot cardholder you are entitled to free entry to our Nature Trails on the Reserve.
As one of the few wetlands left in West Scotland, Lochwinnoch is an ideal day out for the family. Its a perfect spot to watch whooper swans, wigeons and a wide variety of ducks during the winter months. In spring, you won't want to miss the elaborate displays of great crested grebes.
You can also look out for otters and pop in to our visitor centre for a light snack or browse the shop for an array of bird feeding products books, gifts, toys and binoculars and telescopes.
If you are new to birdwatching....
There are two feeding stations on the reserve. One is located in front of the main viewing area in the visitor centre and one can be found along the Aird Meadow Trail. There is a packed events programme throughout the year, with something for everyone from guided walks to evening talks, to bug hunts and fungus forays.
Opening times - the reserve is open at all times. The visitor centre is open daily from 10 - 5 with the exception of 25-26 December and 1-2 January.
