Braedale Hill Local Nature Reserve is situated in Newmains to the north east of Wishaw.

The site was once known as Crindledyke Bing and mainly consisted of waste materials from the Coltness Iron Company. It was regraded in 1975. In the 1990's it was planted with trees and since then has had several environmental and access enhancements undertaken. Most recent projects have been initiated by the local community.

The 18ha site now consists of woodland, grasslands, and the Auchter Water. These habitats are home to many insects, birds and wildflowers such as common blue butterfly, northern marsh orchid and skylarks which can often be heard singing at the top of the hill. The cinnabar moth has been recorded on the site, one of only a few sites within North Lanarkshire.

The site has a good path network throughout.
