The Scottish Wildlife Trust’s Montrose Basin is an enclosed estuary of the river South Esk covering 750 hectares of tidal mudflats offering feeding and roosting ground to a plethora of bird species.

In autumn and winter, the Basin is home to over 100,000 migratory birds including pink-footed geese, wigeon and a variety of other waterfowl and waders, while during the spring and summer months the estuary supports various breeding colonies including sand martins, common terns and eider.

The visitor centre is like a luxury bird hide with strong telescopes and binoculars, offering a great day out for all the family. There is a small coffee shop, a wildlife-themed gift shop, and lots of interactive kids’ activities.

Drop in to find out more about the Montrose Basin’s wildlife, history, and geology, use the telescopes and binoculars to watch the wildlife, and join us in anticipating the arrival of the pink-footed geese!
