Bird Hides at Loch Fad and Loch Quien
Loch Fad is a large freshwater loch and a great place for bird watching. The wooded area along the west shore is good for a number of woodland species. You’ll find a bird hide on the south side of the Kirk Dam, which is separated from Loch Fad by a causeway. From here you can spot wintering wildfowl, as well as other birds of interest. Loch Fad is about a two-mile walk from Rothesay. Loch Quien is another important wintering water for wildfowl and there’s an excellent bird hide here.
