Dumbreck Marsh Local Nature Reserve

Dumbreck Marsh Local Nature Reserve is near Kilsyth and Queenzieburn


The marsh is an open area of countryside, including ponds and large areas of grassland. It is an ideal place for a gentle walk or for wildlife watching.

In the past it was covered with coke and coal waste and crossed with mineral railways lines. It is now home to grassland birds, including lapwing and skylarks, and the water rail. Many of these species are included in our .

We sometimes hold events at our LNR's - have a look at our What's on page to see if there are any soon.
