Lochend Burn

Where we are

Lochend Burn Forest Notices

COVID-19 has changed lots of things we do. And as we re-open the majority of our facilities and welcome more of you back in Phase 3, we need your help to do it safely. Please check what’s open before you travel; enjoy your visit safely by following NHS and Scottish Government guidance; take your litter home with you; and follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.

Please bear with us and check back regularly for updates. You can also find more information by visiting our COVID-19 page and our FAQs.

Colourful wildflower meadows on the edge of the city

Follow the tree-lined path beside the Lochend Burn to reach a grassy meadow and the open fields beyond. In summer, the meadow is a carpet of wildflowers and buzzing with insects. Look out for colourful butterflies, dragonflies and damselflies zooming around the marshy banks of the burn. The well-surfaced path beside the burn is ideal for walking and jogging, and suitable for buggies and pushchairs.

Lochend Burn is part of the Seven Lochs Wetland Park, Scotland's largest urban nature park.
