Wildlife spotting within easy reach
Sep 2020
Some great trails with lots of opportunities to see local wildlife. The hides are closed due to Covid, but the trails are open.

Beautiful scenery, peaceful afternoon
Aug 2020
If you include the Heather fields and the Ruthven Barracks you will have a great afternoon. Bearing in mind we visited during Covid we were able to distance, yet enjoy!

Such a lovely walk
Aug 2020 • Couples
We had been visiting Ruthven Barracks and didn’t know the reserve was there, did a search for nearby attractions and glad we did. Beautiful views over the Loch and a really important site for nature. We went for a small wander and didn’t get a chance to sit in a hide, but would definitely go back again.

do so love this place

every time I visit this area i drop in. There are 3 hides. one has an outside viewpoint with the hide underneath. the views, with or without animals, is stunningly beautiful. the hide has large windows overlooking the marshes. lovely benches, loads of info and a plastified birdguide. bird feeders close by to keep you occupied. no raptors around when I visited but spotted a roe deer hinde with two calves. a place to enjoy some peace and quiet!

Well worth a visit
Aug 2019
Always enjoy a visit here when up in scotland, its got fantastic views, and great wildlife but the best thing for me is the beautiful wildflower meadow and the gorgeous butterflies and insects they attract. Its good place for scotch argus butterflies.

Cosy well sited hide and lots to see
May 2019 • Friends
There is a good hide here if its raining, with a feeder, but we enjoyed standing on the platform on the roof of the hide and had clear views over the marshes and moor and hills beyond. We enjoyed sightings of red deer, heron and were particularly pleased to see snipe. Look in the hide for a list of birds seen recently. Both Hen harrier and marsh harrier had been sighted that day but we were disappointed.....

Great visit
May 2019 • Couples
We visited this after the Ruthven Barracks, and were pleasantly surprised. Two excellent hides and saw lots of ducks and birds, had a nice walks around but I found the track to the 2nd hide a big challenging - luckily I had a trekking stick to help along the way! Definitely recommend this place!

Free to visit and plenty to see
Apr 2019 • Family
Insh Marshes is owned by the RSPB but it is free and there is plenty of parking. One can easily walk between the three hides in a matter of minutes and look out over the marches (and to Ruthven Barracks from one of the hides). Surprisingly, numerous people had recorded spotted plenty of wildlife there, including Ospreys and Golden Eagles. Unfortunately, we didn’t see anything quite so impressive but still enjoyed seeing all the other birds and exploring the hides after just being to the Barracks (less than 1km away)

We're not keen bird-watchers but we had a lovely walk around the well-marked trails here. Definitely worth a visit if you're nearby!

free parking, two hides. one with views towards Ruthven barracks. from the hide you can see the road but the birds do not seem to mind. the views across the marshes are stunning. September is a bit of a quiet month. hen harriers not yet roosting, no geese around. still it is a lovely and serene place to while away some time. last year in October we were able to watch a wt eagle for 45 minutes being harassed by jackdaws. a brilliant place.
