Hen harriers have been spotted.

RSPB Scotland Loch Leven Scottish Snowdrop Festival

January 28th, 2017 - March 12th, 2017

Climb the trail through the woodland to the top of Vane Hill for a spectacular view over the Kinross-shire hills and countryside, or meander down to the wetland trail where our three hides allow you to get really close to nature. Dawn 'goosewatch' spectacles are one of winter’s highlights, as are the whooper swans on the loch. Flocks of garden birds gather at the feeders around the visitor centre, cafe and hides. Birds of prey soar over Vane Hill as roe deer forage for food below and if you are very lucky you may spot our winter visitors, the white-tailed eagles.
