Bird Hides on Bute
Loch Fad is a large freshwater loch and a great place for bird watching.
The wooded area along the West shore is good for a number of woodland species.
Loch Fad is about a two-mile walk from Rothesay.
You’ll find a bird hide on the south side of the Kirk Dam which is separated from Loch Fad by a causeway.
From here you can spot wintering wildfowl as well as other birds of interest.
Loch Quien is another important wintering water for wildfowl and there’s an excellent bird hide here.
