Based on a dog walking perspective. Lovely park for a leisurely stroll with the dogs. Only thing I would say would be to avoid the quieter areas at the back of the park behind the theme park. A lot of weird men hang about here and have come across a few strange goings on in the past, things that shouldn’t be happening in daylight in a public park. Needless to say, I stick to the paths round the Loch now. I wouldn’t recommend letting your kids run loose in the more wooded areas. The council really need to get something done about this.

There are storeys of stories about David Livingstone, the famous Scottish explorer and missionary, in this birthplace museum of his life and work. Housed in Shuttle Row, a tenement which the Livingstones shared with 23 other families, this historic attraction is packed with items relating to his explorations in Africa. These range from letters and navigation equipment to his gruesome medical kit and hippo and lion skulls! It also gives a fascinating insight into the living and working conditions of 19th-century Scotland.We have children's quizzes and regular events to help keep little ones entertained, along with a sandy playpark and 20 acres of parkland and woodland. Located on the banks of the River Clyde, we are the starting point for some beautiful walks.Our tearoom is run by Motherwell College, providing lunches every weekday from 11am-2pm. Unfortunately the tearoom is not open on weekends.
Great place to visit to get information about David Livingstone for my son's school project. Particularly liked seeing his living area and staff were lovely and informative.
We were originally told it was closed for refurbishment but as work never started it is still open at weekends by volunteers. National Trust for Scotland no longer part of the centre so members don't get in for free now. Bit run down in places so hope they get the funding needed to spruce the place back up as will be well worth a return visit then.

Bothwell Castle is the largest and finest 13th century stone castle in Scotland, much fought over during the Wars of Independence. Located in a beautiful setting overlooking the River Clyde, part of the original circular keep of Bothwell Castle survives. Find out about medieval Scotland by exploring the 13th century prison tower and the 14th century great hall and chapel. Open all year. Winter closed Thurs and Fri
This is an impressive castle ruins with the most amazingly huge walls. Really interesting to see canon balls that had been fired at the castle. Parts of the ruins are currently being renovated but still well worth a visit. The attendant/guide Chris was amazingly helpful and informative.

Glasgow and the west of Scotland's industrial heritage relied on location, via the Clyde and the tobacco/cotton/sugar trade, resources from Lanarkshires coal and iron reserves, education following the reformation, and entrepreneurial acumen.
Summerlee provides insight into technology , industry and manpower that provided still and iron for the industrialisation that made Glasgow pivotal in the latter half of the nineteenth and first half of the twentieth century's transport revolutio.
Beautifully presented, free and with abundant free parking this gem contrasts starkly with a town that was once the most polluted in the world.

Fun park to explore with children's zoo. The park itself is quite big and features various animals such as rabbits, Guinea pigs, wallabies, marmosets, meerkats, snakes, reptiles and fish.
The calderglen park has a lot to offer , you can spend a hole day there without it costing a fortune.
So what have they got to offer you , there are some great well laid out nature walks, good exercise and great for walking the dog, there is load of safe space for children to have fun and various structures for them to play on, it has also got a coffeeshop that is open at certain times.
The zoo is worth a walk about , with a good variety of wild & pet animals to see, you have to pay to enter the zoo, but it is worth it. the park also play host for an assortment of events throughout the year. Enjoy your day there .
