This is a gentle walk along a level track to a couple of bird hides in the RSPB's Ken - Dee Marshes Reserve. The pleasant route, between meadows and through woodland alongside Loch Ken, is eminently suited to wheelchairs, though there are railed steps up to the hides. As well as woodland- and waterbirds, this reserve is particularly associated with the Greenland white-fronted goose, large numbers of which are to be found here between mid-October and mid-April. Others favouring these meadows as over-wintering grounds are greylag, barnacle and pink-footed geese. The nationally declining willow tit is also found here.

Not the best easy walk. Pretty featureless and swarming with flies meant it won't be one we return to.
