Ospreys at Rothiemurchus
Nature and people thrive together on Rothiemurchus; communities of people have lived here for at least 3,500 years and currently over 80% of Rothiemurchus is recognised and protected in Scotland and Europe for endangered species and habitat.
Johnnie Grant of Rothiemurchus who with his team has made the hides and lochans said:
“Rothiemurchus has a long history of protecting Ospreys; in 1893 my great, great grandfather was awarded the Zoological Society of London’s silver medal for protecting these birds and my father received the RSPB medal in 1960 for helping to safeguard their return to breed again in Britain.”
For over twenty years, Rothiemurchus has observed, learned and continuously improved the facilities here, making the favourite place for OSprey’s to fish and for photographers to capture award winning pictures.
