Dumbrock Loch

Dumbrock Loch ( Also known as Abies Loch )
Dumbrock Loch lies to the northeast of Craigend Castle and a mile ( 1.5km ) southwest of Strathblane.

 Noted for its bird-life,
it is popular location with walkers and
the Dumbrock Loch Meadows has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
Dumbrock Moor includes a stretch of grassland habitat that has become rare in Britain.
Mineral-rich bedrock lies close to the surface and creates conditions suitable for
flowering species such as harebell, lesser twayblade, hay rattle, lady’s mantle and cat’s ear.
Most of this kind of habitat has been lost from Scotland as changing
farming practices have converted these grasslands into arable crops.
However Dumbrock Moor has taken a different course.
In years gone by, the Moor was grazed by sheep and cattle and this provided a lawn mowing service
which kept coarse, aggressive grasses in check and ensured that 
delicate wild flowers had room to grow and places to set seed.
Now, after a prolonged period without grazing, the number and range of wild flowers has dwindled.  
The re-introduction of a low concentration of cows on the Moor is being considered.
Black grouse breed on the Moor but this iconic Scottish bird
has undergone a drastic population decline in recent years. The grouse are
vulnerable to disturbance, especially by dogs.
