Bird hide overlooking large sandy bay and adjacent farmland

A free-to-use community bird hide just a short distance from the quiet A844 road with wide timber walkway and parking for 2 cars on hard standing. Overlooking Ettrick Bay to the West of the island, this is the ideal location to spot many species of gull, terns, gannets, Manx shearwater, oystercatchers, herons and curlew. Occasionally you may spot sanderling, knot, greenshank, whimbrel, Slavonian grebe, divers and egret. Over winter you will find widgeon, teal, mallard, geese, godwit, ringed plover, dunlin, redshak and lapwing. Snow bunting have also visited on occasion.

There are no services here - there is a cafe and toilet approx. 3 miles by road or 1 mile on foot at Ettrick Bay north, or year-round public loos in Port Bannatyne around 3 miles by road.
