Best Bird Sites

Bute has some wonderful birding sites where a wide range of birds can be found all year round. With a little effort well over 50 species can be ticked off on any day of the year if you plan your visit well. Bird hides are located at The Kirk Dam, Ettrick Bay, Loch Ascog and Loch Quien.
