Bishop Loch

UK»Scotland»Strathclyde»Glasgow»Bishop Loch

The wetland fringe, where the LNR boundary overlaps with that of Bishop Loch SSSI, contains a mixture of bulrush swamp and willow scrub. To the west is a broad leaved woodland which was planted in 1988, flanked by a strip of remnant policy woodland. Further west is an attractive birch wood and peat bog. Woodlands are interspersed with rough grassland and wild flower meadows. A footpath network allows public access throughout, and offers fine views over the loch. Habitat improvements have attracted a host of wildlife ranging from Red Admirals to Roe Deer, and a variety of bird life which includes ten pairs of Whitethroat and three pairs of Bullfinch where previously there were none.
