The Ospreys regularly visit the loch and near by Loch Doon also has an Osprey observatory with a web cam link to the local nest.

Although in a rural setting the market towns of Castle Douglas and Ayr are both within easy reach together with the superb beaches along the Solway Firth and Clyde Coast.

South West Scotland offers superb opportunities for exploring Scotland's heritage.This includes the deserted village of Polmaddie which is only about 2 miles further into the forest park from the pod.
