Walk through a landscape shaped by 800 years of history, and discover the rich wealth of wildlife that flourishes in Fyvie’s loch and woodlands. Fyvie’s 18th-century owners created Fyvie Loch in what was marshland protecting the castle. This picturesque landscape feature now covers a large part of the estate’s 49 hectares and supports large numbers of wildfowl. Swans, coots, mallards, and moorhens are joined in the winter by greylag geese, tufted ducks and goldeneyes. Ospreys occasionally visit to fish in the loch.

Follow the Lochside Walk to explore this rich habitat.
