A beautiful bird watching site.
This nature reserve, run by the RSPB, is open daily from dawn to dusk.
Its shallow loch is situated in a natural basin surrounded by farmland and attracts all types of wildlife.
One favourite summer visitor is the osprey, but you’re just as likely to see otters, red squirrels and deer as wildfowl.
There are three hides that provide views overlooking different areas of the loch and a bird feeding station halfway between the Gullery and East hides, where many different types of woodland birds can be seen.
Loch of Kinnordy is a eutrophic loch which supports a number of rare species of wetland plants and migratory birds.
There are internationally important numbers of greylag geese, with 1% of the Iceland population over-wintering at the site. Black-headed gulls, pink-footed geese, water rails and whooper swans occur in nationally important numbers, along with otters, red squirrels, butterflies and dragonflies.
The RSPB leased the site as a reserve in 1976. It was designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) in 1985, a Ramsar Site (a wetland of international importance) in 1994 and a Special Protection Area (SPA) the same year.
