Owned and managed by North Lanarkshire Council, Broadwood Loch is a man-made loch with surrounding woodland, grassland and lowland peat bog habitats. The wildlife ponds are home to damselflies and dragonflies and swallows can be seen swooping overhead in summer. There is a circular walk round the loch.


  • Listen for the drumming sound of great spotted woodpeckers as you stroll through the woodland
  • Look out for great crested grebes and goosanders patrolling the water
  • Take some time to relax and reflect while watching the swans and geese as they patrol the loch
