About Loch Garten

Located in the heart of Abernethy reserve, surrounded by Caledonian pine forest and in the shadow of the mighty Cairngorms, the newly refurbished Loch Garten Nature Centre is one of the RSPB’s most high-profile visitor facilities, with a legacy of delivering a top-quality visitor experience spanning over sixty years.

  • Enthusiasm and passion for saving nature;
  • Enjoy working outdoors - solo as well as part of a team;
