If last night’s “eggcitement” and the anticipation of more to come over the next few days isn’t enough for you, then we have a packed weekend of events and activities coming up.

On Saturday afternoon at 2pm we once again welcome professional storyteller Lindsey Gibb to Loch of the Lowes for the second of our Beatrix Potter reading sessions. Come along to hear two more of these classic stories – “The Tale of Mr Jeremy Fisher” and “The Tale of Mrs Tiggy-Winkle” and learn about the fascinating lives of the real animals that inspired Beatrix Potter’s writing.

Then on Sunday we are hosting an Optics Fair in the centre. From 10am-4pm a representative from Opticron will be on hand to offer expert advice with a wide selection of binoculars and telescopes available to try and purchase. And remember – if you’re a Scottish Wildlife Trust member you are entitled to a 10% discount of any optics purchased.

Over the weekend we will also be launching a permanent new trail, “Mystery at Loch of the Lowes”. Bertie Brown Trout has gone missing and the investigation is floundering. The list of suspects has been narrowed down to four; your challenge is to search out the clues on the reserve to solve the mystery. The trail has been generously supported by players of the People’s Postcode Lottery. Anyone who successfully completes the trail will receive a certificate, badge and a prize!
