Palacerigg Country Park

by Jemma Fletcher (follow)
Enjoy the wildlife, rare breeds collection, environmental education, kids play park and plenty more!

Less than half an hour's drive from Glasgow, Palacerigg Country Park provides a thriving sanctuary for wildlife.

Read a Glasgow mum's personal review here.


Palacerigg's animal collection is unique in Central Scotland and provides an opportunity to see many rare breeds in addition to other friendly farm animals.

More than 40 hectares of what was once a bleak upland farm have been planted with hundreds of thousands of native trees and shrubs, and the land now has populations of roe deer, badgers, foxes, hare, and plenty more. Rare breeds include North Ronaldsay and Boreray sheep, Bagot goats, Tamworth pigs and Scots grey and Scots dumpy poultry.

Here you can explore the nature trails and places of historic interest, and there's also a children's play area, gift shop, cafe, car parks, picnic sites and toilets.

"Great place for kids. Good play park and good for kids to see the animals and interact you can feed them to." - Palacerigg Country Park Facbook page

When: Open 9am - 4.15pm. The cafe is open from 10am - 3.45pm (from 11am during winter).

Where: Palacerigg Country Park, Cumbernauld, G67 3HU

Price: Free
