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.

Helpful Wardens

Would like to thank the wardens for their help on our emergency stay following the site closures. Although we were due to to stay for a week in April we instead had to arrange an ad hoc stay in order to get back home. The wardens were extremely helpful and made a stressfull situation so much easier. I look forward to revisiting the site and spending more time there in the future.

First time disappointed here

we Have visited Strathclyde park club site many times and always rate it highly. We were very disappointed this time as it was full of travellers. I counted 7 caravans all with commercial towing vehicles. The vans were going the wrong way round the one way system. The other half went in the ladies toilet block to find that every radiator had clothing hung on them to dry. They also had carpets hung over the one way sign. There were kids also playing in the ladies toilets. I believe the travellers were on site for 7 weeks. I thought there was a rule that states 30 days max in any one period. Hopefully on our next visit the site will be back to normal.

Not up to usual standard

Have stayed here many times, as we use it for visiting family. Normally it is super, well kept, clean, friendly staff etc. However on our last stay it felt more like a traveller site. The staff were,as ever, friendly and helpful, but there were lots of commercial vans speeding around ignoring one-way system, kids running all over everybody's sites etc. The men's loo was fine, but my wife tells me the ladies was a mess during the evening, dirty floor and loo paper all over. In fairness, she went back early next morning and it had all been cleaned up. I'm sure the staff were working hard (as ever), this is really more a reflection on some of our fellow campers than on the staff. We were only there one night, so just packed up and left next morning, didn't complain. Hopefully back to normal on our next visit.

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.
