Scotland is taking significant strides toward improving accessibility with the recent installation of Changing Places facilities at two iconic RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) nature reserves: Loch Leven and Loch Garten.

These facilities ensure that everyone, regardless of physical ability, can fully enjoy the natural beauty and diverse wildlife that these renowned Scottish reserves have to offer.

The RSPB: Guardians of Nature

The RSPB, established in 1889, is the largest nature conservation charity in the UK. It is dedicated to protecting bird species and preserving their habitats. With over 200 nature reserves across the country, the RSPB plays a crucial role in maintaining biodiversity and providing education about wildlife conservation.

RSPB Loch Leven & Loch Garten

RSPB Loch Leven is located in Perth and Kinross, central Scotland. This reserve is famous for its stunning views, diverse bird species, and rich wildlife. Visitors can enjoy scenic trails, birdwatching, and educational activities.

RSPB Loch Garten, situated in the Cairngorms National Park in the Scottish Highlands, is renowned for its ancient Caledonian pine forest and as a haven for ospreys. This reserve offers visitors a chance to experience Scotland’s wild landscapes and observe a variety of bird species in their natural habitat.

Enhancing Accessibility with Changing Places Facilities

The addition of Changing Places facilities at these reserves marks a significant step toward making Scotland’s natural treasures accessible to all. Changing Places toilets are larger than standard accessible toilets and include additional equipment to meet the needs of people with profound and multiple learning disabilities, as well as other disabilities that severely limit mobility.

The new facilities at RSPB Loch Leven and Loch Garten are equipped with:
