Lochend Burn

Where we are

About

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.
