Claypits Nature Reserve
A beautiful natural area in Glasgow, Scotland, known for its rich biodiversity and stunning landscapes.
The Claypits is a nature reserve with wooded walks and paths running alongside the Forth and Clyde Canal, between the Firhill and Applecross basins. It was once an industrial hub linked to the canal and Glasgow’s history. It has grown, over many years, into a place for nature and wildlife to thrive. Today it is a much-loved greenspace in the heart of our communities and enjoyed by all who visit.
At the Claypits you can enjoy the most amazing views of Glasgow and also catch glimpses of the site’s industrial past.
Wildlife is all around you, and if you are lucky you may spot roe deer, dragonflies and finches, and wild flowers
The new bridge and walkway have opened up the site to the city and connected the communities across the canal.
The Claypits is a place to meet friends, old and new, whether you are running, cycling, fishing, walking your dog or just taking a stroll.
Some parts of the reserve may have uneven terrain, which can make accessibility challenging for people with mobility impairments. However, efforts have been made to improve accessibility where possible
Dogs are welcome in the nature reserve but must be kept on a lead at all times.
Hamiltonhill Claypits Local Nature Reserve does not offer venue hire for private events.
