Bird hide overlooking freshwater loch, woodlands and farm land

A free-to-use community bird hide just a short walk across fields from the quiet A844 road, Loch Quien is a fresh water loch used for trout fly fishing with plenty of reed beds and shallows. To reach the hide park at the car park hard standing for nearby Scalpsie Bay then walk east along the road approx 100m to pick up the path on the left across to the loch. Summer visitors include grebe, mute swans, coot, heron and cormorant with the occasional osprey. Over winter look for tufted duck, mallard, teal, widgeon, goldeneye and occasionally whooper swans, graylag and Canada geese.

There are no services here - you will need to return to Rothesay (approx 4 miles by road).
