Brucehill Cliffs and Havoc Grassland
Brucehill Cliffs and Havoc Grassland
The cliffs, on the left, are hidden for much of their length by trees. A house visible ahead is part of the Keil Mansions development (see NS3875 : Keil Gardens).
Brucehill Cliffs and Havoc Grassland

The site is, as of 2015, a Local Nature Conservation Site (LNCS), and a proposed Local Nature Reserve (LNR). It is host to a variety of butterflies and grassland plants. The area is a raised beach, with former sea-cliffs now standing inland. Between the cliffs and the Clyde shore is Havoc Grassland; maps from shortly before the Second World War show "Allotment Gardens" there. The adjacent shore is part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
