Situated on the Lunan Water between Forfar and Friockheim, Balgavies Loch is surrounded by reedbeds and willow carr, attracting water rail, great crested grebe and a number of wintering wildfowl, including goldeneye, teal, wigeon and of course the Ospreys. The reserve is also a haven for red squirrel.
A lovely circular walk around the loch and along the old railway line Balgavies is only 3 miles from Balbinny and offers a sheltered 40 minute walk suitable for all ages.
Very popularduring the summer months due to the returning Ospreys. (More pics and details on their FB page.)
