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.

End of season break

Extremely easy to locate, brilliant for all activities o n the loch which is 400 yards away and safe for children to cycle around. I have been a member for 27 years and reviewed many sites and the club staff, however, I must say that this is possibly one of the best sites for location, professionalism of staff, cleanliness and site maintenance. The warden who I spoke with Yvonee Lee was enthusiastic knowledgeable about the area and sites to visit, and in my view one of the most professional staff members that I have come across,she, her colleagues and the site should be the template for all staff to be trained to their level.

always book!

I travelled south from the Highlands last week and intended stopping overnight at Strathclyde site. I called ahead and asked what facilities there were for late arrivals. I was told to go to late arrivals area and pay in the morning. We arrived at 21:30 to find only one Late arrivals pitch and this was taken. For a site of this site, I think this is poor. We carried on down the motorway for another 10 minutes and pulled into the Cairn Lodge service area. Here we had a quite night and it was free.

Location, location, location!

First visit to this site on Thursday night en route to twin granddaughter babysitting duties in north Wales. Second visit was the following Monday night en route home in front of Storm Ali! We will be using it every time we head south for family events, and are planning a longer visit for our own sightseeing purposes. Superb staff, toilet block so clean you could eat off the floor (figure of speech!!) with lots of good size shower cubicles, and lovely large pitches (although we didn't put awning up for 1 night). Felt very private despite being quite busy on the Thursday night. We were slightly concerned about traffic noise as we live in an almost silent location in the Highlands. However, apart from the odd blue light siren, we decided to treat it like waves lapping on pebbles or the wind through the trees (which you could hear over the traffic) and it was strangely soothing after that! Highly recommend to all, including those with children as there was a decent play park and plenty of open spaces, with the added bonus of the rest of the country park next door.

Great site

A lovely site, friendly, helpful and welcoming staff. The site feels spacious and the facilities are clean and well maintained. We used this site as a base to explore Glasgow and whilst Bellshill railway station is walkable, we ended up using the the excellent local taxi service to take us to the station and then got the train into Glasgow. The taxi is £4 and with our seniors railcard the train fare to Glasgow is £2.90 each. The Strathclyde Country Park is next door with a nice walk around the Loch (at almost half way there is a nice cafe inside the yacht club building but it is not well signposted from the outside). There is a Toby Carvery close to the site, we stopped there for a drink after our walk around the park. Prices were reasonable and the food looked good. There is some noise from the roads but this is hardly noticeable and should not put you off, it didn't bother us during the day or night. We are motorhomers and tend to park up the motorhome and use local transport to get about and whilst the local transport is good it was one of those places where we wished we had a car as there are so many other places to visit within a short drive from the site. Would thoroughly recommend the site and will definitely visit again but for a bit longer next time.
