We are delighted and excited to tell you that the tree that is home to the female osprey at Loch of the Lowes, affectionately known by many as ‘Lady’, has been shortlisted for Scottish Tree of the Year.
This magnificent Scots Pine is viewed and admired by people from all around the world via the live webcam. Its stunning location beside the Loch of the Lowes, with the dramatic backdrop of Perthshire’s hills, is an iconic Scottish view whether it’s baking in sunshine under deep blue skies, sparkling with frost and snow or shrouded in early morning mist.
When you add to this the incredibly successful conservation story which has played out from the safety of its branches, surely ‘Lady’s Tree‘ is a worthy winner.
Please vote! And please share this wonderful news far and wide. Wouldn’t it be amazing if our famous female’s home was recognised in this way – Scottish Tree of the Year!

Scottish Tree of the Year is an annual search for the nation’s best loved tree, organised by the Woodland Trust and supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. It’s a unique celebration of the cultural and environmental importance of trees.
Voting closes on 26 October. The winner will be announced at the Scottish Parliament on October 30, and will go on to represent Scotland in European Tree of the Year 2015.
