Whether you have a passion for plants, a fascination for birds or fancy doing some seal and otter spotting, Loch Fleet National Nature Reserve provides a place to experience nature’s delights in a magnificent setting.
The most northerly estuary on Scotland’s east coast, Loch Fleet National Nature Reserve is a large tidal basin surrounded by dunes, saltmarsh and pine woods. Whatever the season, this wide range of habitats supports a huge variety of wildlife- making it a great place to visit at any time of the year. Fast-flowing currents empty the tidal basin on every tide, leaving sands exposed. Here, you can spot seals and their pups hauled out on the banks and waders feeding in the shallow waters. There are a range of easy walks around the Reserve, with a bird hide on the shore around half a mile from the Balbair Woods car park- a great place to see waterfowl and waders.
Facilities include a car park, information panels and guided summer walks by the Highland Council Ranger Service.
