RSPB Scotland Loch Lomond Reserve – A vision for the future

The RSPB reserve hub in Loch Lomond is inviting local residents, businesses, and visitors to be part of shaping its future.

The RSPB have a long history of delivering projects on sites which work for both people and wildlife, at a range of different scales and in a variety of ways. The RSPB Loch Lomond team have been gathering feedback from visitors since they first opened their doors in 2012 and are using this to help them deliver a longer term vision.

Paula Baker, Reserve Manager at RSPB Loch Lomond is keen for feedback on the future developments of the existing facilities and future plans for the site, which could include:

  • Loop paths to create circular routes
  • Loch shore link path
  • A children’s woodland play feature
  • Permanent visitor building
  • Possible car park expansion
  • Community linked path to the reserve
  • Aber settlement point of interest
  • Wildlife viewing structures

Integrity and unique qualities

The Loch Lomond site is renowned for being rich for both wildlife and people. The RSPB wants people to be able to access its hidden wildlife and views of this special place whilst maintaining its integrity and unique qualities. The RSPB is managing the site to make it not only a better home for wildlife, but also a place where people can unwind and get close to nature.

Its overall vision includes creating a link to other wildlife experiences and organisations in the National Park and to become a hub of wildlife tourism for Park visitors.
