About Birds And Binoculars

The Barrhead Dams are a well-known site for wintering birds. Bring some binoculars if you have them (but there will be plenty to share) and join us for a leisurely bird watching stroll.

Meet at the World Buffet restaurant car park, Corselet Road, Darnley G53 7RN.

Bring binoculars if you have them

Throughout the year the countryside rangers will be delivering a series of community events, activities and guided walks for all the family.

All the events are FREE, although booking is required for some. Please contact the countryside ranger service to book places on a forthcoming event.

Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Birds And Binoculars are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
