In summer the meadows are full of colourful, wildflowers, attracting a host of insects and butterflies.
The Nature Reserve has a good path network around the local nature reserve, allowing excellent views of the Loch and its surroundings.
Bishop Loch Local Nature Reserve is part of the Seven Lochs Wetland Park. The Seven Lochs is a new large scale heritage and nature park spanning the Glasgow / North Lanarkshire council boundary between Easterhouse, Coatbridge and Stepps.
