Why stay here ...

Nestled on the edge of picturesque parkland, Strathclyde Country Park Caravan Club Site is the perfect holiday location for the entire family. On-site facilities include a woodland walk, play area for young children, as well as modern family washrooms and disabled facilities. There are also a handful of pitches suitable for larger outfits, which can be arranged through the warden.

The country park is a pleasant ten minute walk from the site, with 1,000 acres of mature woodlands, wetlands, wildlife refuges and neat open parkland, set around Strathclyde Loch, offering unique bird and nature watching, miles of walking and cycle routes, as well as a whole range of watersports and golf. There are also several sites of historic interest within the parkland, such as the Bothwellhaugh Roman fort and bath house, and the nearby M and D's Theme Park is a great day out for kids. The shops and museums of Glasgow are within easy reach of the site and, further afield, Loch Lomond, Stirling and Edinburgh are within an hours drive, making this site an ideal base for exploring Southern Scotland.

Ideal site for city visit or country break

We enjoyed a winter weekend over New Year and thoroughly enjoyed the location and facilities. The dogs enjoyed a long walk round the loch. The whole site is neat and spotlessly clean and the shower block very warm and comfortable. One niggle: the Motorhome service point features two waste drains [great for whichever side of your van the waste drains from] but the drains are sited on a raised tarmac mound which means any spillage drains away around it and collects in a puddle: frozen solid in winter of course, making it very icy along the front of the toilet block. There is of course a raised pavement. Surely, though, the drains would be better in a slight recess if anything? That's a minor thing, though, and overall it is a great site and well worth a short or long stay with all the great places nearby.

Excellent Centre

Not having visited Glasgow previously, Strathclyde was the obvious choice and it turned out to be an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding area. We were warned that getting into Glasgow by car would be horrendous, but it was very easy with a little forward planning. The city centre is built on a grid system so if a mistake was made, then keep turning left and you return to your starting point. here is so much to see, from the various museums, cathedrals etc. As a dog owner I found the official dog walk excellent, but on exploring Strathclyde park there were hundreds of accessible acres of dog-friendly areas. On my visit the theme park was closed which gave me even more freedom. The site is very well laid out and the amenities were excellent and spotlessly clean at all times, only thanks to the hard-working wardens.

Winter Week

I was volunteering at an event near Glasgow in November and stayed here for the first time. I found the toilet block to be exceptionally clean and very warm which was great for that time of the year. The in place warden and his wife who came from Elgin were great hosts and good company. The location of the site gave me easy access to the M74 and had I the time to do so would have used the pub and restaurant less than a few hundred yards away. I found there was a private bus service available to take you to Glasgow town centre and this was being used by others from the site - very handy. People should not be put off by its location to the M74 - it is not noticeable and that is despite the roadworks taking place there. I understand there is a rail station close by for access to Glasgow central. Great location to give easy access to the central road network

Why?

The first thing I asked was "Why are we going to this site"! The answer was "Glasgow". There is a mini-bus which runs to the center of Glasgow daily at a cost of £7.50 (or less is in a group) It returns at a pre-arranged time in the afternoon. Glasgow has three outstanding art galleries (The Burrel. Kelvingrove and the Huntarian) as well as the Riverside with a magnificent collection of Transport items. The site is large and flat. As the previous reviewer states it is subject to the continuous of road "hum" which you soon get used to. It has one of the best on site dog walks (about 800 meters) aa well has great walks in the park and surrounding woods. There are two restaurants within easy walking distance i.e. 400 meters. Well worth a visit.
