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.

POOREST WELCOME EVER

Strathclyde Country Park Caravan Club Site
I have stayed at many CMC sites with my husband during our 10+ years as members, receiving warm and friendly welcomes every time. Unfortunately this was not the case here. I think this particular warden had skipped the module on good customer relations! At every site the first thing we are normally asked is - have you visited this site before? No - that was not even on the agenda. At the grand old age of 75 years of age I was treated like a child. Hand raised to stop me speaking, before she then raised her other hand and pointing her finger at my husband, she told him to wait outside. Our fault - one person meant one person and not one bubble. Our stay was complicated as we were between homes our new build having been delayed, so we were travelling with a campervan and car. For two nights of our ten night booking we wished to leave the campervan and travel down to visit family in Yorkshire. I had previously phoned CMC head office number to ask about this only to be told to check with the site. I phoned the site to check it out and was again told to check it on arrival. This caused the complications, resolved in a very unsatisfactory manner, with a throw-away remark - after all we're not a car park. When I returned to give our pitch number in order to receive the barrier fob, I tried to say I knew how it worked - I'd been before but was interrupted, told to wait until it was all explained to me. I then received a very graphic demonstration on how to use the fob as though I was a five year old. By this time we would have just left but since we were 'homeless' we had nowhere to go at short notice. The site itself was as we'd remembered- very clean and well cared for. The facilities especially the toilets and showers were first class. Yes there's plenty of traffic noise but that's to be expected being very close to the busy M74 motorway on one side and another busy dual carriageway on the other. Public transport is still a problem involving a very circuitous walk crossing these busy roads on overhead walkways. Strathclyde Country Park is great for families and dog walking.

Good stay .....but!!!

Strathclyde Country Park Caravan Club Site
Return to this area to visit family. Site was excellent as usual, wardens very helpful. On Sunday we were informed of discolouration to water supply and were advised not to use and Scottish water would deliver bottled water!! None came, so we decided to go and buy our own. Morning of departure we found out that a delivery of water had been made and we had been missed out. Very frustrating!!! A little bit more communication would have been beneficial, between water department and wardens. Would definitely come back, but found our last day on site disappointing.

Spotless and friendly in a perfect location

Strathclyde Country Park Caravan Club Site
It was the first time visiting this site and I chose it for its location close the motorway so that I didn't need to detour my journey north. The person on reception was really friendly and helpful, providing me with details about the site and the surrounding area. He immediately put me at my ease. The site was immaculate with a lot of care and attention given to make it feel welcoming. The dog walk around the site was well thought out with dog bins at either end. All pitches were on gravel and laid out so that it felt spacious with water and waste easy to hand. Yes, the motorway does wrap around half the site, but it really wasn't intrusive once I was tucked up inside my van. I only stayed one night, but went on several woodland walks with my dog. I did notice there was a Toby restaurant with walking distance, but didn't investigate. I will definitely be making this site a regular stopping off point, perhaps staying for a few days as there is so much to do in the area.

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.
