    Mugdock Country Park is 10 miles north of Glasgow and covers 260 hectares which offer a range of activities.

    The park is situated on the edge of Milngavie and has spectacular views of the nearby Campsie Fells. There is variety of recreational activities on offer including walking, cycling, horse riding and archery, and a range of cultural and sporting events are held at Mugdock throughout the year. The Ranger Service leads outdoor learning and environmental activities and there are opportunities for pond dipping and to study mini beasts. The park also includes a children's play area.


    Mugdock was the home of the ‘noble Grahams’ for centuries. The park includes the remains of their former stronghold, the 14th-century Mugdock Castle, as well as the ruins of the 19th-century Craigend Castle, a Gothic Revival mansion. Craigend Castle formerly housed a zoo, but it closed in 1954. Its stable block is now the visitor centre for Mugdock. The centre also offers opportunities for shopping and eating in its restaurant, bistro, gallery and gift shop, while Caulders Garden Centre can be found in the Victorian walled garden. Historical reminders of the lairds' presence can be found in the moot hill and gallowhill, while natural features include the Allander Water, Mugdock Loch and Drumclog Muir.
