What to expect
Baron's Haugh is a real gem for wildlife right on the edge of built-up Motherwell. We need help to look after the wetlands, meadows and woodlands both for the myriad of wildlife that live there, and for the many people who visit. In the spring you might hear woodpeckers and nuthatches, while in the winter whooper swans feed on the flooded meadows. If you're lucky you may even see a kingfisher or an otter on the river. Please note that there is no Visitor Centre at Baron's Haugh and so you will be asked to provide your own refreshments.
