What to expect
Set on the southern shore of the loch, the reserve offers a great day out for families, nature lovers and wildlife watchers alike. Formerly known as Vane Farm, the RSPB bought this reserve in 1967 as a centre for environmental education and it is a fantastic place to explore and discover nature. Our woodland and wetland trails give spectaculars view over the Kinross-shire hills. In the summer, you can often see ospreys on the loch, and in the winter, thousands of pink-footed geese, swans and ducks make the reserve their home. Our Visitor Centre has a well-stocked shop selling bird care products and our award-winning coffee shop serves delicious, local and ethical food all year-round, all with a fantastic view over Loch Leven itself.
