Thank you for your review of Muirshiel Country Park and our recent Stargazing event! I'm sorry the weather wasn't on our side for this evening but glad the children in your company enjoyed it all the same! The next FREE event will take place on Fri 20th Nov 2015. We hope to see you again soon. More

A beautiful expanse of lowland wilderness just 30 min south-west of Glasgow, towards Bute, Cumbrae and Arran. We drove north to south from Greenock to Largs on the Old Largs Road (single track with passing places but well metalled). Views back across the Clyde on the climb from Greenock were breathtaking. The moorland, valleys and reservoirs within the Park offer... More

Drove throught the north of the park on the Old Largs Road - a narrow one lane road, with plenty of passing places. You have to go slow or you might run over one of the lovely lambs and sheep on the road - staring you down in a game of chicken!! We were lucky to see a female hen... More

Thank you for your kind review of Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park. I'm so glad you were able to see a female hen harrier, they are truly an iconic species for the area. In this same area, around Loch Thom, it has been known for an osprey to fish, so may be worth a second visit! More

This centre (Clyde Muirshiel at Lochwinnoch) is fantastic. Excellent walks around the forest and up the hills to Windy Hill and down to the old mine too. There is also the river and waterfall to see. Nothing too adventurous for serious climbers but also good for children. Excellent dark skies forstargazing. Some great events and nature talks are held here.... More

Excellent facilities and information centre! Easy to find paths! We cycled up to the old mine! Thoroughly enjoyed it even thought it poured with rain! Brilliant scenery and wildlife too!

Great place for family walks. 1hr -3 hrs. Walk up to windy hill is pretty easy, grat for young kids but will give them a sense of achievement. Fantastic place to fly a kite, sledge or just clear some cowebs. Longer walk up to abandoned mines pretty interesting. Small visitors centre, shop and machine dispensing hot drinks. Toilets
