Excellent site

Strathclyde Country Park Club Campsite
Don't be put off by noisy site comments. Due to warm weather we had a fan on all night which was noisier than the traffic. Only when sat outside the van could the humming of the traffic be heard. Take care at the motorway junction as its whacky races and we got stuck in wrong lane and ended up back on M74 heading home!

Great Stopover near Glasgow

Strathclyde Country Park Club Campsite
We stayed here for 1 night on a Scotland tour, access was good and we were made to feel welcome. Pitch was level, facilities were clean. There is a Toby Carvery within 3 minutes walking distance and a country park within walking distance down the lane (we spotted deer walking along this road!). Downside is that this site is right next to very busy roads, however this becomes white noise after a while as you get used to it. We would return here as a stopover but its not a holiday destination for us.

EASY SITE TO FIND

Strathclyde Country Park Club Campsite
Do not be put off by comments about this being a noisy site. Yes you can here a gentle rumble of motorway traffic but this was not a problem to us. The site itself is flat and really spacious whichever pitch you choose. The facilities were beautifully warm and spotlessly clean. The perfect location for breaking a long journey north or south.

Excellent site but very noisy

Strathclyde Country Park Club Campsite
This site is right by the junction of the M74 and the A725, so don't expect it to be quiet - it isn't, it's easily the noisiest Club site I've stayed on. BUT we have stayed here twice and will probably do so again, because of its excellent location. It is very easy to find as long as you take the right junction off the motorway and follow the simple directions in the club handbook. The site is flat, we found TV reception really good (although the Club handbook says it's not) and the facilities are what you would expect from the Club and are of course cleaned daily. We didn't use WiFi. You wouldn't choose this site for a peaceful, relaxing stay. As a night halt it's second to none being so close to the motorway, and for seeing the sights of Glasgow it's pretty good. There is a Toby Carvery directly opposite the entrance. Not much else apart from the country park in the immediate vicinity. It's quite a hike to Bellshill railway station, which has regular trains to Glasgow Central and Edinburgh and it's uphill all the way there, although obviously downhill all the way back! E-bikes make it an easy ride though and you can either go through the country park or straight up the cycle path alongside the busy A725.You can also go to the stations in Motherwell and Hamilton, but we used Bellshill so can't comment on the others. There is a huge Tesco Metro and a large Morrisons Store in Bellshill. Both have petrol stations too.
