Ospreys have been regular visitors to Loch Doon for several years and once settled they tend to return year after year to the same spot to raise their young. Brian Meechan who runs the Roundhouse Café has set up a powerful telescope which the public can use to view the birds. Apart from the opportunity to see these amazing birds Loch Doon is a great place to spend the day.
