Gartcosh Local Nature Reserve is an important site for protected species in the form of the great crested newt colony (the largest in Scotland) but also as a vital green lung and place for relaxation, contemplation and informal recreation for the residents of Gartcosh and Glenboig.

Many people visit the reserve to enjoy the wealth of wildlife and the range of habitats present which vary from the bluebell woods to the wildflower rich meadows and small ponds full of dragonflies and of course the great crested newts. Many of these species are priorities in our Local Biodiversity Action Plan and we will continue to manage the reserve carefully to protect them.
