About Bishop Loch Local Nature Reserve

The Reserve is located in north east Glasgow on the edge of Easterhouse. It was Glasgow’s first LNR, being designated in 1995. Despite its name, the LNR boundary does not actually include Bishop Loch. The Reserve is made up of woodland, grassland and the marsh that adjoins the loch on its south western boundary.

This is the third LNR to be leased to Forestry Commission Scotland by the Council.

Bishop Loch LNR runs from Craigend Wood east to where ‘Lochend Road’ meets with Lochend Road. It can be accessed with path entrances along Lochend Road and Auchengill Road and the paths offer fine views across the loch.

The Reserve plays host to a range of woodland bird species whilst the grassland comes alive with colourful plants that attract butterflies and bees.
