About Fairy Glen

Markie Burn, RSPB Fairy Glen reserve

Image: Andy Hay

Walk by a fast stream and gleaming waterfalls in this wooded glen, looking for grey wagtails, dippers and buzzards. This beautiful steep-sided valley is an oasis of calm, but do take care as paths are rugged in places.

Opening times

Open at all times.

Entrance charges

None, but donations to help us continue our work here are welcomed.

Information for dog owners

This nature reserve is important for wildlife. RSPB Scotland welcomes responsible access, in line with the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. During the ground-nesting bird breeding season (1 April to 15 August) we would ask that you keep your dog close to you, preferably on a short lead and please clean up after your dog.
