About Hogganfield Park Local Nature Reserve

Hogganfield Park Cumbernauld Road, Glasgow North G33
Hogganfield Park Local Nature Reserve Website

Hogganfield Park Local Nature Reserve is located in the northeast of Glasgow, some five kilometres from Glasgow city centre.

The main entrance, including free car parking, is at Cumbernauld Road beside Lethamhill Golf Course. There are also footpaths from Avenue End Road, from the junction of Avenue End Road and Cumbernauld Road and from Gartloch Road.

The Park is dominated by Hogganfield Loch, a large shallow loch with a wooded island. The loch and its surrounding grasslands, marshy ponds and woodlands were declared as a Local Nature Reserve (LNR) by Glasgow City Council (GCC) in 1998.

The Park is an excellent place to see wetland birds with the main attraction being Whooper Swan in winter. In summer, Water Rails can be heard calling from the marsh and overhead Buzzard and Kestrel can now be seen on a regular basis.
