History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Within the boundaries of Abernethy is Loch Garten, a large loch famous for its Osprey Centre, where visitors can observe those elusive birds of prey via a 'nest cam' CCTV. Waymarked footpaths lead through the forest, creating some extremely nice circular walks.
Abernethy is home to a large population of wildlife, especially breeding woodland birds like Capercaillie, goldeneye, crested tit, and crossbill.
There is an Information Centre in Nethybridge, in addition to the RSPB visitor centre at Loch Garten Osprey Centre.
