After a walk round the park we went into the restaeraunt for some food. Whilst the menu was limited the food that was supplied hot and fresh. We were taken aback with the quality and service.

The Avon is a very nice place to go swimming with your friends for free. It is nice in the summer after you get a cheeky wee bottle down you then its off with the trousers and in the water we go. I would not recommend this for anyone under the age of at least 13. But don't go to... More

The building; it was a terribly cold, wet and windy day, but the building was well... More

The building and the exibition are very interesting and informative. Lots on local history. There is a large play park for kids (great for summer visits), there are also a number of different walks (varying distances), through the woods and along the River Avon to Cadzow Castle and beyond. The cafe and shop are nice but not cheap if you... More

Went here for a day out and is really worth the trip. The parkland is beautiful with long accessible walks to wander on. The house is lovely too and the view from it is amazing however they could utilise the house a bit more to make it more in to an attraction. Shop and cafe were good but a little... More

Nice quite place, lovely for lonely or couple or group or pet walks. Nice gift shops, enough of seated areas and ease to access. Great for a long walk. Good for family fun time but can utilize the space a bit more
