Wildlife & conservation
Paxton House prides itself on its strong commitment to the environment and conservation and is a great place to lose yourself in beautiful walks or indulge in a bit of local wildlife watching.
Whether you’re looking to escape from the stresses of everyday life, enjoy a day out with the family or simply want to take in the stunning scenery, there are wonderful walks through the woods and along the river to capture your imagination.
Along these paths, you’ll also be able to discover the majestic wildlife of lowland Scotland. Salmon, heron, cormorants, mute swans and sometimes even seals all inhabit the riverbanks whilst hares, squirrels and deer - if you’re patient - can be found within the woods themselves, a haven for nature photographers and wildlife enthusiasts alike.
We pride ourselves on our passion for the local landscape and wildlife and have a deep commitment to the conservation and protection of it. Over the years, with the help of our staff and some hard working volunteers we’ve implemented schemes and built hides and habitats to encourage and sustain the wildlife, helping protect the most endangered species amongst them.
