Photo Of The Week: Duddingston Loch, Edinburgh

Duddingston Loch, Edinburgh

From this week, we are starting a new “Photo Of The Week” series that will feature a photo from our travel archives or that is close to our heart in many ways or a photo that speaks thousand words.
This is the picture of Duddingston Loch, a natural reserve, bird sanctuary & a freshwater lake in Edinburgh.  Many tourists do not even know that a loch as beautiful as this exist in the south east corner of Holyrood park. The reserve is home to wildfowl, water rail, great crested grebe, tufted duck, mute swan. Lying to the south of Duddingston Loch is Bawsinch Nature Reserve spread across 64 acre land, that was a previous industrial wasteland, associated with the ‘Innocent Railway’ and a local brewery.  There’s a small pond with rich reed-mace and willow-herbs.  All together, this is a great spot for outdoor activities or feed the swan/ducks.
Have you been to this Loch?
