Exploring the area
Tarras Valley Nature Reserve is at the start of an exciting journey embarking on landscape scale nature restoration and the development of a rich community resource for many generations to come.
The Valley is popular with the local community for walking, wildlife watching, wild swimming and picnics. We are at the start of our land ownership journey so you may find some facilities are limited at the moment – please bear with us as we are busy working together on the development of sustainable facilities across the Valley. Watch this space!
We welcome visitors to the reserve and hope you enjoy exploring the many different habitats and looking out for some of the amazing wildlife that calls this area home. Please be a responsible visitor and follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code to make sure everyone can enjoy this wonderful area.
The access code sets down your rights and responsibilities but of particular note please keep your dogs in sight and under control, take your rubbish home with you and don’t light open fires, barbeques or fire bowls in dry periods or near to forests, moorlands or buildings.
