Falls of Clyde Wildlife Reserve near New Lanark is one of five sites in the UK shortlisted by Countryfile Magazine as Nature Reserve of the Year 2019.
The winner will be chosen through a public vote, which closes on Sunday 17 February.
This scenic woodland reserve has been a magnet for visitors since the 19th Century due its spectacular waterfalls and woodland walks.
Reserve Manager Sven Rasmussen said: “Falls of Clyde Wildlife Reserve is one of Scotland’s natural treasures. The reserve’s ancient oak woodland and clean waters make it a true haven for wildlife and a fantastic place to explore in any season.
“I hope that people will get behind us and give the Falls of Clyde their vote.”
Falls of Clyde reserve is home to a rich range of wildlife. More than 100 bird species have been recorded including dippers, ravens and kingfishers. Badgers forage amongst the undergrowth, several species of bats feed above the water at dusk, and otters find food in the river.
The reserve also hosts Scotland’s Badger Hub, a base for training events and volunteering opportunities developed in partnership with the charity Scottish Badgers.
Editor of BBC Countryfile Magazine, Fergus Collins added: “Congratulations on everyone who has been shortlisted – it was a tough judging process, so they can all justly feel proud at being part of this celebration of the best of the British countryside.”
