Local Nature Reserves (LNR) are places for local people to actively enjoy, while having the chance to see and learn about nature on their doorsteps.

Ravenswood LNR is a valuable wetland site of 17 hectares on the north side of Cumbernauld bordering the A80. It is one of the council's Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINC) due to its wetland flora and fauna.

Ravenswood is an enjoyable place to take a stroll, cycle or take your dog for a walk. 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.
