“Decent sized park with a variety of walks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Free car parking at the park - in the main one and in the smaller ones on the route in.

You can do the regular easy circuit around the water and the old tower - normal shoes/trainers OK - takes about an hour or you can do a more energetic walk heading out of the main walk at at the start of the West Highland Way - walking boots suggested here though & supplies to be taken with you.

There is a garden centre with nice grounds and small restaurant site at the main car park

A BBQ area which is private and can be booked for your party for a small fee.

There are a small amount of tourist information leaflets in the centre which also has free toilets.

Plenty of cute dogs are normally out for a walk. Check the Mugdock website for any events - as if you're not going to any of these then you may wish to go on a non event day as otherwise the car parks will probably be too full.

“Nice place to go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

This is a good place to go for lunch - either in the cafe within the park grounds or in the garden centre. Lovely walk and an old castle. Also a good wee theatre with bar etc.

“We liked this park but so much poo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Lorna and I needed to fill a couple of hours last Saturday before picking up Debs & Cal and heading up to Skye and I recalled this park also had a cafe. Actually the cafe (Charlie's) was great but Trip Advisor doesn't list it which is a pain. Then we went for a long walk which was also really good fun apart from the piles of dog turd in little plastic bags dumped next to the paths by lazy visitors.

“a big enough place to wander about in and enjoy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Anyone who likes walking about with or without particular purpose would enjoy here.There is a variety of things to see- castles, small lochs, moors, views, trees, nature, wee bar, craft shops garden centre and couple of cafes to finish off with cuppa or ice cream depending on weather. There is history here and space to wander, wee ones would like the playground space, though it gets a bit busy at kiddie time.... but there are other less structured stuff that all ages can do....running/sauntering about....

“The Great Outdoors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

This park is on the outskirts of Glasgow and a great place to go as a family or on your own. There are craft shops along with a cafe/restaurant and a garden centre so things to do if the weather is not on your side!
