A small central district of Cumbernauld in North Lanarkshire, Ravenswood lies a half-mile (1 km) southwest of Cumbernauld Town Centre and was developed on the land around a small farming settlement called Ravenswood or Bogedge between 1968 and 1972. Ravenswood House, which had been an early Mediaeval retreat for the Bishop of Glasgow, was demolished. The street-naming scheme is now based on Scottish islands; namely Arran, Skye, Ronaldsay, Tiree and Westray, all off Island Road. There is a community centre and two schools; namely Ravenswood Primary (1976) and Our Lady's High School (1968). Ravenswood Playing Fields are associated with the latter while, to the west, is Ravenswood Local Nature Reserve.
