My girlfriend and me went here today through a Groupon voucher. The park was amazing! The birds where beautiful and it was awesome to see them fly, even a wee sneeky view of ana the Andean condor who was magnificent! The staff where so knowledgeable that you couldn't help but share their passion! And who knew vultures were so cool!

Smiddy Inn

Reviewed By beermanGlasgow - Glasgow

Another great meal from this place. Have been here a few times but time to leave a review.
I had a rump steak done med/rare. It was one of the best steaks I have had out of a restaurant. I was done to perfection, very juicy and tasty. The other three meals were also spot on. Hunters chicken and penne pasta along with the nachos all hit the spot.
For desert the chocolate brownie went down a treat along with a very good apple and blueberry crumble with custard. Full to the brim and a very reasonable cost.
A place to try if you are looking to try somewhere different. Screens all around with sports on and also an beer garden with cover if needed.
I will be back soon for another steak!

Palacerigg Country Park

Reviewed By Lyndsay I

Palacerigg used to be a great place to take the kids when it actually had animals, when we went on Tuesday it is so different really went down hill, there are goats, rabbits Guinea pigs, goats & more goats. We tried to purchase food but were told there was none left! The cafe is extremely overpriced and one of the ladies that work in the kitchen needs a personality transplant she was exceptionally rude to me in front of my daughter. Would absolutely not recommend visiting here.

Cumbernauld Theatre

Thousands of people come to Cumbernauld Theatre each year to see wonderful shows, to enjoy a great night out, to celebrate, to join in, to be entertained, to discuss (and occasionally to enjoy a good argument!), to share a night with friends, to enjoy a good conversation, to be part of your community. Our Theatre rightly has a national reputation for excellence and innovation matched with a commitment to our community. Right now, we’re starting the process of building a partnership of consensus to establish Cumbernauld Theatre as the premiere central belt theatre in Scotland.

Cumbernauld House Park has amazing views and is very animal friendly. Very popular with dog walkers and families looking for green space.
Cumbernauld house itself is gorgeous.
The local charity is looking to do as much to make the part as accessible as they can and its starting to pay off.

Another great day at Dullatur golf club. Recommended for functions and family get togethers. Booked for early dinner in the lounge for birthday bash. Staff were great, the two waitresses made the event run smoothly. Good selection from the menu suited everyone. Decent no fuss food went down a treat with a few wines. Thanks again to staff and the manager. Don't engage with the old members in the bar area as they love to talk. Fantastic pleasant day. Thanks again

Broadwood Stadium

Reviewed By Swedishtomcat - Diss

This stadium is the home ground of Clyde FC as well as Cumbernauld Colts. The Wee Bully started playing here in 1994 following eight years of ground-sharing, having moved out from their long-term home in Rutherglen in 1986. The Broadwood stadium has a capacity of just over 8,000 and features a 3G pitch. If you like collecting Scottish football grounds, then this will be of interest.
