Try our optics ranges outdoors, against the scenic backdrop of Aberlady Bay
Local Nature Reserve.
At Waterston House we offer a wide selection of optical equipment including binoculars, telescopes, monoculars, tripods and cleaning accessories.
Try out models from the UK’s top optics brands including Viking, RSPB, Swarovski and Zeiss, alongside selected others.
The equipment we stock has been chosen to cater to a variety of needs (and budgets!), whether you’re a traveller looking for a small pair of pocket binoculars, or a glasses-wearer looking for tailored options. We also carry a small range of children’s binoculars, perfect for budding ‘Packham’s’!
Being birdwatchers, we understand the importance of trying optics in field conditions. With a viewing platform overlooking Aberlady Bay Nature Reserve, at Waterston House, you’ll be in the ideal location to do so.
We’ll take the time to explain the different features of individual models and show you first-hand how to use and maintain your optics.
With the aid of our expert, impartial advice we’ll help you select the right equipment for you.
100% of the profits from our optics sales are invested back into the Club allowing us to continue our work watching over Scotland’s birds.
Having problems with your binoculars? Thinking of buying your first pair or treating yourself to an upgrade? Fancy taking up wildlife photography and need some tips to get you started?
