The preservation of wildlife is a very important feature of Tullochwood and we do our best to encourage native birds and forest animals to share the wood and lochan with us. You may see roe deer, red squirrels and a number of birds including moorhens and woodpeckers.
We are currently developing an Education Centre in our Information Lodge, which will have details about the many animals and birds which can be found in the grounds of Tullochwood. This will include activity sheets for youngsters to take away to identify what they can find.
For a sneak preview of who you might see at Tullochwood and the surrounding area, visit our wildlife gallery.
