Ranger service

A fond farewell to Alison – RSPB Community Ranger

Sadly our fantastic ranger, Alison Greggans, has now moved on to pastures new. The good news is that RSPB will be recruiting and we hope to have a new ranger in post by early summer 2018. Like Alison, they will work full time in the spring and summer and part time in the winter, and will be covering Nethy Bridge, Boat of Garten and Abernethy NNR.


The information below gives an idea of what services our new ranger will be providing and will be updated as soon as possible.

The Ranger will be in Nethy:

…at the Visitor Centre, days and times TBC. Why not drop in for a chat, say hello and catch up on all the wildlife goings on or information about local and park wide Ranger events

On other days I’ll be out and about, so look out for me on your forest or riverside walks.

Contact details

You can find me in Nethy:

  • at the Visitor Centre
  • along the trails


I also have a facebook page RSPB Community Ranger Abernethy Nethy Bridge and Boat of Garten where I post lots of information about Ranger led events and local wildlife.

Family guided walks

Nethy Bridge: Likely to run July to September 2018.

Your WELL behaved dog is welcome but must be on a lead. Donations pay for maintenance of footpaths throughout the year.

Boat of Garten: TBC

Loch Garten: TBC. See RSPB website for details

Volunteer days

Happening regularly through the winter. New Volunteers always welcome. No specific skills are required. Tasks are various and accommodate all levels of fitness and ability. Contact ranger if you are interested in coming along. We are also seeking volunteers who would like to help run the Visitor Centre. Please contact, Jane or Elspeth to find out more.
