About Duns Castle Nature Reserve
There are paths linking Hen Loch and Mill Dam with waterlillies and redmace growing along the bank. The Nature Reserve is a fine place to walk to see woodland flowers, breeding wildfowl, birds and butterflies with Duns Castle in the background. The best time to see wildflowers is from April to July. Duns Castle Nature Reserve was established in 1966 by agreement with the Hay family of Duns Castle.
