From early April to late August, the star attraction is a pair of breeding ospreys, which nest just 150 metres from the observation hide. Get closer to the ospreys with binoculars, telescopes and live video footage. Interactive displays help bring the story of Loch of the Lowes to life. Spot red squirrels and various woodland birds from viewing windows.
