This is one of the most popular RSPB reserves in Scotland. The visitor centre overlooks the loch where pink-footed and greylag geese, whooper swans and thousands of ducks spend the winter. The wet grassland is managed for nesting redshanks, snipe, lapwings and ducks. One trail leads visitors to hides overlooking the loch. The second, longer nature trail guides visitors through woodland to the view from the top of Vane Hill. A summer walk often gives views of willow warblers, tree pipits and perhaps great spotted woodpeckers.
