About Mini-Beast Safari

The meadows and ponds at RSPB Scotland Loch Lomond are the perfect place to go in search of mini-beasts. From tiny bugs, to beautiful butterflies and frogs we'll be spending the day exploring the grassy meadows and ponds.

Wellies are recommended as the meadows can be quite muddy and some activities will be taking place of the path.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Mini-Beast Safari are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
