“Where the City meets the country” almost perfectly describes the attributes of Red Deer Village. It is the ideal base for those who wish to experience some of Scotland’s finest cultural centres and beauty spots. Located in North Lanarkshire, the vibrant and exciting City of Glasgow is within easy reach - by bus, rail or car with Edinburgh and Stirling both within an hours commute.
The village boasts panoramic views of the city of Glasgow as well as breathtaking views of the Campsie hills, gateway to the Scottish Highlands.
The local Frankfield loch is only minutes away by foot and offers a sanctuary for wildlife. Wild deer are regular visitors to this area. The local Cardowan Moss Woodland is situated to the east of Hogganfield Park Local Nature Reserve, between Garthamlock and Stepps. This diversity of wildlife and habitats present has led to this site becoming a proposed Local Nature Reserve. This 45 hectare site consists of a remnant raised bog bordered by wetland habitats, grassland, with establishing plantation woodland and areas of existing woodland/scrub. The site supports a population of the nationally declining water vole. Skylarks, Wheatears and Meadow Pipits are among the many animals found on the raised bog. The willow scrub provides habitat for Reed Buntings and other small birds. There is plenty of scope to explore this site, as there is an extensive network of paths perfect for walkers and cyclists alike. Click here for more information about the area.
There are many local amenities and services that you may wish to take advantage of. Locally we have a doctors surgery, dentist, local shops, health and fitness club, 2 local golf courses both within 2 miles, hotels and even car hire and pony trekking!
