Price: nil

RSBP Scotland shall walk round the loch which eventually joins the Clyde Walkway. There are 4 hides to observe the water & marsh. Other habitats include grassland, river, woods & scrub.

What to Bring.
The paths are generally good but muddy in places. Stout shoes or boots are advisable. Warm & if necessary waterproofs are advised. There are no toilet or cafe facilities so bring a packed lunch.

Sponsored by David Clarke – please ring 01786 824032 or 07850834944 in the event of inclement weather before 9am.
Please note: this event is run by an RSPB volunteer group and is organised for interested members of the local community.

Directions
From Stirling take the M9 south & then join the M80 towards Glasgow. Take the M73 turnoff signposted Carlisle & then join the M74. There are extensive road works with a speed limit of 50mph monitored by average speed cameras. This is unlikely to result in much delay at the weekend.
At junction 6 take the exit signposted Motherwell & Wishaw (A723). Follow this road to the first major set of traffic lights & filter right towards Motherwell(on the left is the entrance to Strathclyde Country Park). Continue to the 4th roundabout with a Vauxhall car dealer on the right & straight on is the ELIM Pentecostal Church. Turn right at this roundabout where there is also a sign to RSPB Baron’s Haugh. Continue this road to the end, turn left & almost immediately turn right on a small road marked for Baron’s Haugh & the Dalzell estate. The car park is on the right after a few yards & we will meet there at 10 am. The journey is approximately 34 mls. & will take about an hour.
Grid reference NO 754553. Postcode ML1 2PZ(nearest location just before the turning into the road leading to the car park).
