Lochwinnoch is a village on the banks of Castle Semple Loch and the River Calder in Renfrewshire.
This popular village has a vibrant cultural life with a busy events programme. Bird–watchers will want to travel to Lochwinnoch to enjoy the local RSPB Nature Reserve while the Castle Semple Visitor Centre is a great base for outdoors sports and a gateway to the wild delights of the wider Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park. Golf enthusiasts can enjoy a round of golf at Lochwinnoch Golf Club.
Lochwinnoch has a number of friendly places to eat and drink including The Loch House, Corner Bar, The Brown Bull and The Three Churches. March is a great time to visit the village—you can catch the fantastic Lochwinnoch Arts Festival.
Lochwinnoch’s train station operates on the Ayrshire Coast Line and links the village to Paisley, Glasgow and the Ayrshire. A shuttle bus service operates to and from the village centre to the train station.
Similar to other villages in Renfrewshire a second train line used to be in operation but has since been converted into a cycle path and is now part of the National Cycle Network’s National Cycle Route Number 7, running from Glasgow to Gretna. There is also an hourly bus service to Johnstone operated by Key Coaches.
