Lochwinnoch

Lochwinnoch is an RSPB nature reserve of wetland, with a bird-watching visitor center, and nature trails. They also have the best children’s play park I’ve seen and you can request equipment for pond dipping.  It’s only 20 minutes from Glasgow Central station, but it feels worlds away.

We go often and in any season, but the best time to visit, is probably in Spring and Summer because there are so many birds and plants to see! Having said that, I remember being there in Winter, with the children and we still enjoyed. We spent less time walking and more time inside the visitor center, but the view is beautiful and we saw some amazing birds we migrated from Iceland, with the binoculars, which is very exciting for them!

Last Wednesday, we were there once more. It was a very nice Spring day, mu older children stayed mainly in the play park with friends, while I went for a walk. We saw a swan on a nest and I loved seeing the primroses in flowers, so many plants  growing and a lot of bird activity! On the way to the train they got very excited about the flowering strawberries…
