Birding around Glasgow sites (1 Viewer)


Well-known member.....apparently so ;)
Hey all, am finally taking the plunge for the Myrtle Warbler on weds (please, please stay 🫰🫰) will be on site around 1030, gotta drop car back at airport at 1900....so are there any good spots in which to spend the afternoon? Don't mind a drive, girlf would love to see a grouse of any descripton.....never birded the area at all so any advice gratefully received πŸ‘πŸ»
When my son lived in Glasgow, he used to head north up to the Campsie Fells whenever he felt like getting out of the city - probably the nearest easily accessible bit of upland habitat (by car), and I see that they have some red grouse records on eBird.
Alternatively, there's plenty of upland habitat by the M74 on your journey back - Lowther Hills would be worth a look, in fact based on number of eBird records this may be a better bet.
