Home to 35 birds with over 25 species our new location is in natural woodland on the edge of Loch Lomond.

Loch Katrine is one of the most scenic lochs in Scotland which is best seen on board the Steamship Sir Walter Scott which has operated on the loch for over 100 years. Start your trip at Trossachs Pier to Stronachlacher and either disembark and walk the private road back to the pier or stay onboard for the return sailing. You can also hire bikes at the pier and cycle the route on the quiet north road.
We have highlighted just a few of the places to visit and things to do but there are many other great days out to be enjoyed in The Park. From Safari Parks, Castles and many Visitor Centres your holiday or short break may not be long enough!
