Ravenswood Local Nature Reserve is accessible by foot from Skye Road, Ravenswood, Cumbernauld
This LNR is a valuable wetland site of 17 hectares on the north side of Cumbernauld bordering the A80. This has been identified as a Site of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINC) due to its wetland flora and fauna.
Ravenswood is an enjoyable place to take a stroll, cycle or walk the dog. There is a good surfaced path which will take you across the wet meadow where you can see greater butterfly, northern marsh and common spotted orchids. Look out for the impressive six spot burnet moths. If you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of one of our rarest butterflies the small pearl bordered fritillary.
Up on Rabbit Hill, the stone viewpoint indicates surrounding places of interest. Finally, the path takes you past Coot Pond and then along the tree lined avenue of the old Pollockshole Farm.
