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.

Road noise brings it down

Strathclyde Country Park Caravan Club Site
Stayed here for one night on way up to highlands, the site is well laid out, very clean and organized with great facilities, showers etc spotless and great walks from the site. The road noise though is dreadful and carries on all through the night with traffic, emergency services sirens and boy racers (who sounded as though they were racing up the feed road for the site) so didn't get a good nights sleep at all - far from it. Its a shame because if the road noise wasn't there it would be a great site.

Great stopover, beautiful site!

Strathclyde Country Park Caravan Club Site
We found this site last minute and chose a serviced pitch. It was a clean and immaculate site. Wardens were very friendly and helpful. Lots of space, very nice bathrooms. Easy access by car to Glasgow with parking, city bus tour a great day out. Must see includes the Kelvingrove Museum. Loved the loch nearby.

Why

Strathclyde Country Park Caravan Club Site
On our third visit to this wonderful site in the last two months we were surprised to find when the site was full and busy one of the toilet blocks was closed up for the winter. This policy would question why the need for two toilet blocks or why reduce facilities when then site is full of caravans, motor homes and tents? If the block was closed for the winter then why leave the internal lights on if no one can get into the building? We have never found any faults with this site, apart from our observations above, and will continue to use this site. We find if we sail on the morning or afternoon sailing we can drive to the site to start our holiday in a relaxed state.

lovely spot

Strathclyde Country Park Caravan Club Site
this was the first time we had stopped here and I don't think it will be the last, the staff are so friendly and helpful and the site is spotless the only down side is the noise from the motorway, but hey ho we knew that when we booked it having read the reviews. its a lovely walk around the Loch and the park and the fun fair / amusement park is a massive bonus if you have kids our grand kids would love it. the bus stops are a way off so ended up getting a taxi to the train station, we ended up on an empty train station has there were and still are on strike every Sunday so we found ourselves walking down the road and catching a bus into Glasgow so beware of that issue at the present time.
