Mugdock Country Park on the outskirts of Milngavie has
many interesting features, not many Country Parks have
two Castles, a Gallow Hill, a Drowning Pond and a World
War 2 Gun Site.
Maps of the Walks and Castles etc. can be purchased from
the Visitor Centre. Most of the walks are quite easy,
the biggest decent being Mugdock Wood where you will meet
up with the West Highland Way.
The Park can be reached by driving, Bus or Walking the
West Highland Way from Milngavie. Walks can vary up to
2½ miles (4 km) but can be extended by varying
the route. I have not put a time to this as it is very
much up to the individual.
Another big advantage of the Park is the walks can be
extended out with it's boundaries, two of these walks
featured here are the Standing Stones of Dumgoyach and
More Detailed information about Mugdock Country Park and
events can be found on their official Website.
Why not take a virtual walk round the Park, just click
on Map of the Park and click on the red spots. Try and
find two other hidden spots not marked?
