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

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.

Another Relaxing Stay

Yes there is a drum of traffic noise as it is close to 2 main roads, (we got used to it after the first day, it didn't spoil our stay), this is off set by the fact because of these roads it is very easy to reach areas to visit easier. We find this site relaxing, with it's large level pitches. the facilities are warm, modern and extremely clean. The whole site is kept very tidy and wardens work tirelessly to keep grass and flower beds and borders looking good. There is a decent dog walk on site which is handy for those early morning and night time doggy toilet visits. Acres of park land and a huge lake with water birds next to the site, with a visitors centre and cafe half way round. All the major supermarkets within a few miles of the site. A visit to the Kelpies near Falkirk is a must, the only charge is a modest £3 to park all day, with canal walks and park land also cafe/restaurant.The same with the Falkirk Wheel a few miles down the road. We only used to stay 1 night at this site but decided to stay longer, and found it to be most enjoyable. A Toby Inn a short flat walk away. The wardens are some of the best and friendliest we have encountered for a while. Thank you for a very pleasant stay. We live 300 miles away, on our future visits to Scotland this site is definitely on our list to stay for a few days.

Start of our tour

We stayed here as the first part of a Scottish tour, in fact I am writing this from there. The location is great, close to the motorway, easy to find. Just across the road is the Country Park with lots of walks, we walked around the lake this morning. The site is a credit to the very friendly and approachable staff who themselves are a credit to the club. Very friendly and helpful with local information. The only downside is the proximity to the motorway, as others have said there is a constant buzz of traffic, though you do get used to it. We head north tomorrow but I'm sure we will be back. A big thank you to all the staff here. Oh, BTW no problems with the wifi, we tour often and all year round, go for the annual package, very handy for planning and fact finding and at less than 50p a week good value

Most welcome staff

I would recommend this site to any members who want to tour Scotland as its ideal starting location. You can hear the motorway traffic as its right next the M74. But the staff on site are amazing and very helpful i think one of the staff was called Sue if not i apologise, but regarding the site we visit at least 4/5 times a year as its ideal to vist relatives. Everytime we visit the site it seems to get better everytime and seeing the improvements regarding the ground work and gardens i would like to congratulate the staff as this site is a credit to the staff.

Amazing Staff

We arrived at the site in a state because our car had broken down. Sam and her team were amazing. They went well beyond the "call of duty" to help us out. Without there help and care a disaster would have become a catastrophe. Sam recommended the walk round the loch which really helped us "chill out". Our heartfelt thanks to Sam and all the team. Thank you!!
