For a 'great escape' and a healthy, family fun day out come to Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park. It's open every day with free parking and lots of 'buggy friendly' signposted walks and nature trails. Escape from the stress-filled world and relax with a tea or coffee in one of the park's centres while the children play safely or try an outdoor activity with a qualified instructor. Or take to the water on Scotland's first aqua-trikes!
Patrolled, sign posted trails make walking easy, or if you are more adventurous you can plan your own route in 108 square miles of park. Enjoy the added benefits of a ranger led walk. Who knows what wildlife you might see! Cycle tracks and quiet country roads offer plenty for the cyclist to explore and enjoy, while the Sustrans cycle route from Glasgow to Irvine passes right by the park's main centre at Lochwinnoch. You can hire bikes or learn bike skills on a short course.
For water sports, there is easy access to spacious but safe and shallow Castle Semple Loch, with no speedboats to disturb you. Launch your own dinghy, windsurf or canoe, hire a boat or join one of the clubs. There is a wide range of equipment and fully qualified instructors offer a variety of courses to suit all skill levels.
