Why stay here ...

Nestled on the edge of picturesque parkland, Strathclyde Country Park Club Campsite 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.

Good location for breaking a long journey

Strathclyde Country Park Club Campsite
We stayed here on our way home from a Scottish road trip. We spent 2 nights here and did the walk around the country park, which was about 5 miles on mainly good paths. There is a section through woodland which, in June, was swarming with midges, so we were glad we'd covered up with insect repellent! The site itself is a standard club site with gravel pitches and concrete paths. As a wheelchair user, I found it to be largely accessible, though the gravel is always hard to get over. The accessible shower room was great - good size and clean. Others have mentioned road noise. Yes, the site is right next to a motorway on the outskirts of Glasgow, so you can hear traffic but it didn't bother us and we slept well. The birds put up pretty good competition with their loud singing, which was nicer to listen to. The Toby Carvery and the country park are within walking distance but there are no pavements and dropped kerbs are a bit hit and miss, so it wasn't easy getting to either by wheelchair. I had to wheel in the road which wasn't too busy but some drivers weren't driving at sensible speeds. Overall, we liked the site. Probably wouldn't have an entire holiday there but it's great as a stopover to break longer journeys.

Good short stay

Strathclyde Country Park Club Campsite
The site is beside a motorway interchange so is very convenient for a one night stopover. There is a noisy hum of traffic especially around 5 pm. We stayed for a few nights and hated the multilane busy motorway roundabouts in this area of the Central belt of Scotland. We went to the Burrell Collection and enjoyed it. We went to Culross village and enjoyed the National Trust house and the charming village on a hill with tiny cobbled streets. We also visited Hamilton to check out the large M&S food hall and the large Sainsbury supermarket. The site was immaculate. We have our own facilities in the motorhome so did not use the toilets and showers. We thought motorhomes should get a reduction in the fee if they do not use the facilities.

Great Central location for exploring an area packed with culture and history

Strathclyde Country Park Club Campsite
Great place for exploring this area and for stopovers when heading north or south. Yes, there is road noise, but the site is surrounded by trees and we didn't find it a problem. We tend to be out and about in the day. Facilities were great and the country park is a pleasant add on. I found early morning the best time to walk the lake.

Great place as a base

Strathclyde Country Park Club Campsite
Others have complained about road noise. Whilst it was noticeable, it soon blended into the background but the site wasn't as peaceful as it otherwise would have been in such a brilliant location on the edge of the country park. It's such a convenient location for visiting the area around Glasgow. The Museum of Transport and Tall Ship on the Clyde were superb (with a good cafe as well). The Falkirk Wheel was mind-blowing. Much to do there. Don't be put off by negative comments. Try it for yourself if thinking about venturing into Scotland (or coming the other way into England).

Noisy

Strathclyde Country Park Club Campsite
One night stay on way back from Scotland tour, nice site easy to access, clean facilities, Toby carvery within walking distance if don’t want to cook, also do breakfast. Closeness to motorway has its downsides, constant noise 24/7. It just doesn’t stop. Ok for the one night wouldn’t stay longer as need to sleep.
