Had a great week here at Glenfruin Lodge.
Enjoyed seeing the birds and pheasants in the garden.
Heard the owls on a few nights, took day trips to Luss, Balloch Country Park, Loch Lomond shore including the Bird of Prey Centre and Sea life. Had a good few hours at the RSPB Centre and spotted a Red Squirrel, Tree creepers,Buzzards and Kites and Deer. Trip out on Loch Lomond on a lovely sunny day was great too. Final day was spent at Queen Elizabeth Forest Park and around the various lochs. Overall a great week away.
