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.

Clean, friendly, great location

Strathclyde Country Park Caravan Club Site
We initially only stayed 1 night on our way up to Scottish Highlands, but ended up spending another 2 nights on the way down as we loved this site so much. The site seemed to be great sun trap and we enjoyed that we could see our children scooting around making friends for almost the whole site. Staff where friendly and everywhere was clean as we now expect from all Caravan Club sites. Some beautiful flowers at the front was lovely to see. Nice cycle around the Strathclyde Loch and 2 nice parks for the kids. We also popped into the arcades. Yes it can be a little noisy in the nights as quite close to main road, but this never bothered us.

Motorway noise

Strathclyde Country Park Caravan Club Site
The site is very well kept, facilities are spotless. There is constant background noise from the motorway and in the evening there is extra noise from cars which seem to be being raced along the road though the country park which adjoins the site.The only place you can walk to easily to from the site is to Strathclyde Country Park. The park was horrible - full of litter, not just recently dropped but long standing bottles, cans etc, in all the shrubbery and woods. The park is bordered by the motorway and is noisy. To get anywhere on foot beyond the Country Park entails a 30 minute walk across the motorways via the footbridges. It is a bit like being parked up in a clean motorway services area. We would not return.

Happy camper

Strathclyde Country Park Caravan Club Site
Used this site as a stopover on way south and must say was more than impressed with facilities. An absolute cracking site. I had a full serviced pitch with water, grey waste disposal and tv point though I didn't use the tv point. There was a chemical waste point close by but no too close and a recycling point there as well all with about 10 metres from pitch. Very comfortable, only wish I could have stayed longer. Whilst I didn't venture far I know the area a bit and there is quite a lot to do roundabout either using your own vehicle, public transport or there are lots of cycling opportunities as well. There is a constant noise from motorway but you do get used to it and would like to come back sometime and spend a bit more time there. Not often you get a site that ticks all the boxes.

Bit noisy, - good stopover.

Strathclyde Country Park Caravan Club Site
Well equipped and maintained site. Helpful staff. Lot of traffic noise. Nice walking in the country park. Excellent stopover going north or south to/from Scotland, and easily accessible from the motorway network.

Great Base for Exploring

Strathclyde Country Park Caravan Club Site
Stayed here 14 nights and then 4 nights and managed to get constant sunshine. Staff were friendly as were all fellow motorhomers and caravanners. Also showed us flexibility on both dates to extend stay. Only downside was small - wee playpark closed but was for essential maintenance. Covid restrictions were necessary but great with visiting now for grandkids and family. Cleaning times in facilities clearly visible and always somewhere open. Quiet and serene while we were there. Great for dog lovers and plenty useful information. We chose this site to get to know our motorhome and it's a great base for exploration. Sadly the park is only accessible from the busy roundabout because the Motherwell entrance is blocked off. That also means you might need to take your motorhome with you because public transport is non-existent for miles. This is however a Strathclyde Park issue and not the Campsite itself.
