Calderglen Country Park
Calderglen Country Park is a four-star tourist attraction which has a conservatory, ornamental gardens, children's Zoo, extensive nature trails and walks, Courtyard Cafe, toddlers adventure and special needs play areas and a golf course.
Away from the main visitor area, you can wander along the length of the wooded glen which extends for about 5km along the Rotten Calder river. Several attractive waterfalls can be found along the way as well as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for geological features.
Spring and early summer are the peak times for woodland flowers and bird song. The songs of summer migrants such as willow warbler and blackcap frequently mingle with those of our resident birds. Foxes, badgers, roe deer and otters may also be seen. Look out for butterflies and orchids in the open meadow areas.
Autumn is an especially fine time of year at Calderglen, when the foliage on the trees takes on a range of attractive colours and shades. Fungi are at their most abundant at this time, together with seasonal fruits and berries.
The Countryside Rangers based at Calderglen run events, work with local schools, patrol the trails and provide information on wildlife and outdoor access. Our education pack may also be helpful when arranging a walk or visit to the park.
All outdoor events at Calderglen are listed in the What's on.
For information on the trails in the park see Calderglen Country Park trails.
Langlands Moss local nature reserve, a lowland raised bog, is easily accessible from the park with a trails leaflet Routes around Langlands Moss also available for this area.
