“MEANDERS AT MUGDOCK”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Mugdock is reasonably local for me and we often go there for a walk with the dog.
There is a variety of walks - ash paths and moorland walks round the loch and up to the castle.
Highland cows can be seen grazing in the fields just a few hundred yards from the Visitor Centre.
The Visitor Centre has a courtyard with 2 coffee shops a gift shop and a gallery.
50 yds away from the Visitor Centre is a garden centre with a very good selection of plants for sale and a popular restaurant, serving meals and/or coffee and cakes/scones.
Beside the garden centre is a walled garden with a bandstand which hosts "musical afternoons" from time to time. Last time we went a brass band was playing a selection of popular tunes and people sitting in the walled garden seemed to enjoy the entertainment

“Ever increasing Bluebell wood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I used to live in Glasgow and like it here a lot. The bluebell wood now covers a large area in May. Nice trails, crossing the West Highland Way and up to the visitors centre with good views of the Campsies. A couple of castles to view- check what they used to look like online. Plenty streams for thirsty dogs and a good café for owners....I noticed on Saturday it has a theatre bar, so drinks for owners too. Free parking at various points and a good garden centre by the visitors centre. I really like Mugdock, it gets busy, but dogs can run about without being too near the road. Been going there for thirteen years now.

“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.
