The whole island of Fetlar is a haven for flora and fauna, and a great place to come exploring. Along the coast you might be lucky enough to see otters. Park at the car park at the Loch of Funzie and en route to the RSPB hide at the Mires of Funzie look out for red-necked phalaropes at the loch. The female is more colourful than the male, and performs most of the courtship rituals! The island is full of birds in summer, including red-throated divers, golden plovers, skuas and wild rock doves.
Hide open April to October, any time of day.
Free, but donations to help us continue our work here are welcome.
The track to the hide is rather rough and unsuitable for wheelchairs.
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.
