Wildlife Watching

Activities Outdoor

Queen Elizabeth Forest Park is home to some fascinating wildlife.  Spot red squirrel, badgers, hedgehogs, bats, red and roe deer to name a few.

If you are a bird of prey enthusiast visit David Marshall Lodge, Forestry Commission Scotland's visitor centre at Queen Elizabeth Forest Park.  Here you will be able to watch families of ospreys, buzzards, kestrels and blue tits on both live and recorded CCTV footage.  The Bird of Prey Trail will take you on a 40km tour of the Trossachs where you can spot sparrowhawk, hen harriers, red kite and more.

Queen Elizabeth Forest Park offers you the experience of mountains, moorlands, forests, woodlands and lochs through a number of routes.  Loch Ard Forest and Achray Forest make up part of the Forest Park and are ideal for exploring this area.
