Cullaloe LNR

A Scottish Wildlife Trust reserve in Fife, VC85, which was formerly the reservoir for nearby Burntisland before being decommissioned in the 1980s.

The reserve comprises two ponds, the main one of which is an SSSI because it contains Mudwort, for which the water level is dropped in the autumn. Other water features include a stream flowing along one flank and some filter beds from the reservoir. There is some mixed woodland, a small stand of pines and extensive Willow/Birch scrub.
