Our Rangers

Kelburn’s Rangers are always available to answer your questions or to provide you with general information about the park. They also provide a number of other services and activities:

  • Educational walks and talks for schools and colleges.
  • Special themed guided walks that are both fun and educational and suitable for all ages.
  • Informative displays on Kelburns varied Natural History.
  • Organising conservation tasks for youth groups and other organisations.
  • Maintaining Kelburn Glen to provide continued access for visitors and to benefit the wildlife that lives there.
  • Organising children’s activities throughout the year.
  • Supervising volunteer conservation projects.

The Kelburn Ranger Service is proud to be supported by Scottish Natural Heritage.

The Rangers Centre – (Currently closed due to COVID-19)

The Ranger Centre is open daily and offers a range of educational displays and fun activities.

Use the displays to learn all about symbiosis and echolocation, and discover what we can do to save the bees and our oceans.

Create a masterpiece to rival the castle in our colouring corner; use touch to guess what’s hiding in the discovery boxes; and match the animals to their food, in our wee ‘What’s for Dinner’ game.

The Ranger Centre is regularly used for educational talks and top up activities, throughout the school holidays.
