Route Filmstrip & Description

Circular walk around St Maurice's Pond. The pond is a Site of Importance for Nature Conservation with areas of reedbed, open water, mixed woodland, parkland, wildflower meadows, orchid meadows and orchard. Cumbernauld Living Landscape has a Wild Walk around the site encouraging the public to record wildlife in the area. great site for waterbirds, wildflowers, butterflies and dragonflies. Path is comprised mainly of loose gravel and is approx 1.8 metres wide for much of it's length, though it does narrow slightly in places. There is one steep uphill section on the anti-clockwise section, however taking the path clockwise eliminates this as the slope in that direction is almost imperceptible (though you still have to come down it!). there is a boardwalk section over the pond.
