Loch Ruthven RSPB Reserve

Loch Ruthven RSPB Reserve
Loch Ruthven is a RSPB reserve near Farr in the hills above Loch Ness.

This beautiful, tranquil loch is fringed by sedges and birch woods. Visit in early spring, when our must-see bird, the rare Slavonian grebe, looks its best in gorgeous red and golden plumage, the jewel of the Highland Lochs. Spend time in the hide and watch their fascinating behaviour. While you’re here you’ll also see ospreys, divers and toads.

Duration: 1-2 hours

Length: Approx. 3km

Difficulty: Easy, relatively flat, good woodland paths. Some mud.
