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 Stop off on M74

We stopped off on our way north and again on returning south. Very convenient to the M74 and to a number of places of local interest. Also there is the lake in the park with its Roman bathhouse remains. But beaware of the constant buzz from the M74 and A735 which cross by the site!

Great Site and Great Wardens

The best wardens I have come across in all the years I have been using CMC, I had a breakdown with my motorhome whilst here and they couldn't do enough for us. Helping us find a garage and rearranging our bookings with other sites they couldn't have been more helpful. The site is great and facilities were always kept immaculate

Great M74 stop over and longer stays

This site has matured well since it was open. Spacious pitches, wildlife, roe deer, squirrels buzzards all possible. A lot of effort in making the site welcoming. Very clean facilities. Once you get accustomed to the traffic noise, all is well. The TV screens out the buzz of the traffic. The tall trees help too. Toby carvery within walking distance.

Great site for an overnight stop going north

Travelling north, in June 2019, from the Manchester area, this was a great choice for a break in the journey to Inverness. Yes there was some background traffic noise. But this is offset by the location close to the motorway, the quality of the site, the staff and facilities, and the surrounding area. The nearby country park is good to walk in. By the way it's a long long walk all the way around the lake. I think another reviewer, suggesting ear plugs, must have been unlucky and picked a bad time to stay. There were no issues like that when we stayed there. We are booked to stay another night on the way back. Highly recommended
