Attraction in Dumfries & Galloway

WWT Caerlaverock Wetland Centre

Get set for 1400 nature-filled acres of amazing wildlife. With more hides, towers and observatories than any other nature reserve in Scotland, it’s the perfect place to get up-close and personal with our wonderful wildlife. Wind your way around our Sir Peter Scott Centenary trail, then hunker down in our one of our three hides to spot kingfishers, woodpeckers, and a wealth of small birds including the rare tree sparrow. Sweep through flower-filled meadows, past wild orchids and orange-tip butterflies on our wildflower meadow walk. Then follow the muddy banks of Lochar Water, looking out for roe deer tracks and a glimpse of the elusive otters who live here. When it’s time to refuel, head to our coffee shop for a delicious hot or cold home-made lunch. Follow our seasonal trails to learn more about wetland habitats and species. Hire a rucksack full of bug hunting equipment, do some pond dipping and use spotter guides in the summer to find bugs and dragonflies. Discover the Paddock. Wander through the Paddock, looking in the ponds for bugs, frogs and toads. Look in the hedgerows for tree sparrow, yellowhammers and reed buntings.Take a look in the Scottish Water Hide.
