Description
Castle Loch is a large freshwater loch that is home to roosting pink footed and gryelag geese in the winter. Around Lochmaben Castle there are footpaths, picnic tables and areas to watch birds from. In the summer there is a different variety of birds visitors might see including kingfishers, willow tits, reed warblers, variable damselfly and other fascinating butterflies. There are really good views available to disabled visitors on the fishing piers just off the A709 and B7020.
