Why stay here ...

Nestled on the edge of picturesque parkland, Strathclyde Country Park 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 site staff.

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.

Great Site for Dog Owners

Delighted that site adjacent to Strathclyde Country Park - ideal for dog walking - although the site has a very good dog walk - it was great to walk by the loch in the park. Site wardens really pleasant and helpful - and shower block immaculately clean. Liked the layout of the site - spacious pitches and well spaced. The A74 runs close to the site - my fears that it would disrupt sleep were unfounded - it's just a background noise. I was staying her to visit friends in Glasgow - very convenient spot for the city.

Stop over.

Used this site as a stop over only. Usual welcome about how to park. Where everything is. Site immaculate well looked after. Toilet block was cleaned but later on at night it took my husband to find a clean toilet to use. With excrement and urine all over them. The caravaners on site where off an older age like us and to leave a toilet in this condition is disgusting. Remember there are lots of us who have to use these facilities as well. So show respect and leave as you find. The wardens do not deserve this either.

Good for a stopover

I have been coming to this site since it opened, and the people who use it now seem to abuse the facilities. Perhaps it's because it is a non member site and every body and their uncle can use it, The staff must have had a sign machine for Christmas because their are signs every where. My biggest complaint is on arrival they ask you have you been here before and when you say yes they go into jobsworth mode informing you of the site plan, how to park even though you have been caravaning for a few years which they can tell by your membership number. It makes a good place to stop over night but not long term.

This site is a credit to the Wardens who look after it

On my way to the Western Highlands of Scotland I stayed at this site for two nights on 1 and 2 October 2019. The site is extremely well organised and the shower and toilet facilities were spotlessly clean and lovely and warm. The whole site is extremely well maintained and cared for. All facilities were well signposted and the map of the site which is provided when you arrive is very helpful. I was lucky enough to have the sunshine on both days and a friend came to spend the day and we did a five mile walk through the woods up to Chatelherault Country Park. Great cafe at the visitors centre. Yes you can hear the traffic noise, but the site is close to one of the busiest routes from England to Scotland, so it is to be expected. Quite a few lanes when you come off the motorway at Junction 5 travelling north bound, so make sure you get in the right lane! I didn't but I managed to turn around at Bellshill and come back down. The wardens are extremely helpful. I had a slight problem with my fridge in the hired motorhome and one of the wardens was kind enough to assist. Would definitely stay again on my way up to the Western Highlands.
