8 reviews of Mugdock Country Park in English
Beautiful country park just outside Glasgow.Plenty of opportunity for picnics , rambling, etc and a great place for dog walkers.The park itself has lots of activities which can be accessed by visiting the web site at www.mugdock-country-park.org.uk. I took the audio tour , available from the shops located at the stables found it both informative and entertaining. Well worth a visit
P.sThere is a cefe in the courtyard which also does good lunches
This is a lovely country park about 20 minutes away from Glasgow. It has a whole range of terrains and naturey things to visit, like woods, ponds, lakes, ruined castles etc, plus it has a play park for kids and an extremely muddy adventure playground for big kids! They also have a little tea room and shop with crafty type things in it. At the other bit they have a nice garden centre which also has a garden/ food/ gift shop and a cafe. I would recommend the macaroni cheese! It also has a sort of walled garden which is a bit scenic. This park is really good for dog walkers, people trying to tire out their kids, or if you just wanted some country themed exercise and a sit down afterwards! Just be careful on the road there as it is quite narrow.
love this place! got lost and found lots of hiddentreasures a most for those who love the out doors and for those who don’t they have a court yard with small shops! wear old clothes as tunnels you can go through ! go off the beaten tracks is where the most fun!
I went to the Mugdock Country Park once and I remember it as a really pleasant day out. I took the train in Glasgow Queen Street Station to Milngavie Station, and then walked to the Country Park and then kept going on until the Mugdock Castle. It was a lovely winter day and there was still snow on the top of the hills. You can pursue your walk until the small Carbeth Loch and see the famous and beautiful Drumgoyne. Overall a very nice and easy walk of approximatively 8miles.
Fantastic park with a wonderful “natural” feel to it. There are lots of things to do here - from walking and cycling to horse riding and even archery!
There are various places to shop and eat within the park, from the smart Garden House Restaurant to the more relaxed Stables Tearoom. There is also a lovely gift shop as well as a craft shop with local artists and craftsmen’s products for sale.
For the children, there is a panto on again this year.
Mugdock is easily the best and most 'natural’ country park in the Glasgow area. Being slightly out of the city, it doesn’t attract the Glasgow neds that unfortunately frequent some of the other Glasgow parks. Mugdock is accessible on foot from Milngavie (probably sbout a 2 mile walk) or easily by following the road signs by car - there is ample free parking. There are great organised activities for children throughout the year and the beautiful walled garden area often hosts orchestras. There are also cinema events in the evenings and seasonal events for Christmas, Easter etc. The ranger service can keep you up to date with what’s on.
I love Mugdock. It has such a lot to it. You can literally walk for miles into the countryside and still be within the park. It has a walled garden, a waterfall, cafe and courtyard as well as the castle. It also has a fabulous garden centre with a great cafe.
Probably the best country park in the glasgow area. Although it is obviously managed it still has a ‘wild’ feel about it. It can be accessed directly from Milngavie by following the West Highland Way for about 2 miles through moorland which seamlessly joins onto the the park. Go early in the morning or late in a summers evening when it is quiet and you will have the opportunity to see all sorts of wildlife.
