SUNSHINE, summer and stunning views - visitors at the RSPB Loch Lomond Reserve at Gartocharn took to the outdoors recently to make the most of the surroundings.

Among the activities at the reserve during the summer is Big Wild Summer at Loch Lomond, where youngsters can be a “wild” detective for the day, following the activity trail in a bid to solve the mystery of the season.

Also on offer are weekday wildlife walks, taking place most Fridays. The guided excursions are aimed at those who would like an easy-going guided walk to find out about the reserve and the wildlife. All abilities are welcome.
