Cathkin Marsh Wildlife Reserve

A small nature reserve comprising fen and marshy grassland located next to the former South Cathkin Landfill Site, between Glasgow and East Kilbride. Cathkin Marsh Wildlife Reserve extends to 10.2 ha (25.3 acres) and is managed by the Scottish Wildlife Trust. It is home to birds, including snipe, water rail and reed bunting, together with visiting wildfowl such as teal, mallard and mute swans. Also found here are common toad, and mammals including stoats, weasels and deer. Butterflies and dragonflies can also be seen and there are attractive displays of wildflowers during the summer. A boardwalk runs around the pond and through the marsh, and this provides access to a bird-watching hide.
