SWAT Nature Trail and Map

Within the Lainshaw Woods you will find a nature trail that is marked by a series of information panels. The trail is indicated by the red dotted line in the following map of the Woods that was reproduced as the centre-page spread the Spring 2020 edition of ‘The Review’, Stewarton’s free quarterly magazine. The original map appears on a panel at the main entrance to Lainshaw Woods in David Dale Avenue, Stewarton. The map’s design and artwork were created by Mark Davies.
