Lanarkshire: The Ultimate Staycation Destination
06 July 2012
Lanarkshire has it all, as well as being home to two UNESCO
World Heritage Sites: The Antonine Wall and New Lanark
Lanarkshire is one of Scotland's often undiscovered gems.
Surrounded by beautiful Scottish countryside, it offers a world of
choice for walkers, cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts, while a
wealth of high quality visitor attractions provide fun for all the
family. With excellent transport links to Edinburgh and Glasgow, as
well as being a short drive north of the border, Lanarkshire
provides the perfect location either for a short weekend break or a
longer family holiday.
For those looking for history for all the family, New Lanark is
not to be missed. Boasting an award-winning Visitor Centre, roof
garden and situated by the spectacular Falls of Clyde, a visit to
this historic site is a truly breath-taking experience.
Strathclyde Country Park
One of the most popular family
attractions in central Scotland is the stunning Strathclyde Country
Park. Visitors can enjoy a walk or cycle around the beautiful
parkland by Strathclyde Loch, or have a go at sailing, wind-surfing
or water skiing at the park's Watersports centre. Plus, nestled
within Strathclyde Country Park is M&Ds, Scotland's only theme
park, which boats five rollercoasters, two water rides, family
rides, and Amazonia - an indoor tropical rainforest.
The Caravan Club's newest site, scheduled to open on 26
October 2012, will be located in Strathclyde Country
Visit the site details page to find out more, follow the
progress on site and make a booking.
Cumbernauld Outdoor Activity Centre
For the more adventurous traveller, Cumbernauld Outdoor Activity
Centre offers a range of exhilarating activities, including
paintballing, archery and 4x4 off road driving. It also houses
Scotland's largest Birds of Prey Centre, which contains many rare
species of birds, with regular displays hosted daily.
