Cumbernauld Glen is a beautiful ancient woodland in the heart of Cumbernauld, providing a haven for wildlife and an important recreational space for local people. Badgers, roe deer and foxes make their home here as well as all kinds of woodland birds. Butterflies such as ringlet, meadow brown and small pearl bordered fritillary make use of the meadow areas. The Glen is full of history too, with a 16th century dovecote, an 18th Century lime kiln and the remains of a 13th century castle mound. The reserve is a well known beauty spot for local people, and the wide tarmac paths make it very easily accessible.
