Visiting our reserves: Check before you go!
With the continued easing of restrictions in Scotland we know that a lot of you (and us!) will be really keen to get out there and explore Scotland’s amazing wildlife and landscapes. Knowing just how important nature is for all us we are working hard to get our reserve facilities open once again so we can welcome you back safely onto our sites.
Like many other organisations we have had to furlough a number of our front of house teams in order to help the charity through this tricky time. We are beginning to bring staff back to work and ensure our sites have all the necessary systems in place to keep visitors, staff and volunteers safe. It may mean some of our facilities will remain closed for now but we will open them up just as soon as we can.
With this in mind we have pulled together a quick and easy table of what facilities are currently open at each site. This will be regularly updated with the latest information so please check back here before visiting.
Our paths are accessible in line with the Scottish Outdoor Access Code and as ever we ask that visitors respect nature and act responsibly. All visitors should also follow the latest Scottish Government advice on physical distancing and hygiene.

We hope you enjoy getting back out in nature and we can’t wait to welcome you back.

Please note that some of the facilities at the reserves are owned and run by our partners. We are working with them to get these open as soon as possible but only when it is safe for everyone to do so.
Love Scotland, specifically Loch Lomond! Can't wait to be back once Covid is over, such a serene place.
I definitely agree with NatureLover1010's comment. I love to be out with the family and my team from inspection maison. I haven't been out much since the Coronavirus pandemic, but will soon start again.
I definitely can not wait come back and visit your reserves again! It is a harmonious environment to be in.Chris - Mold Removal Milwaukee
