Lindean Loch Nature Reserve

About This Route

An attractive short circular excellent for bird watching both for water-fowl on the loch and song birds in the deciduous trees or just enjoy the scenery. Lindean is first recorded in 1113 as being the South Common. Although the land is still farmed the reservoir was created by the water board. In the 1970’s the reservoir was purchased as a Public Recreation Site, Wildlife Resource and fishing resource. This is the function of the site today and there is parking and a bird hide available.
