As a family we love getting out and about and we often head to Beecraigs Country Park. While there we often have a walk and let the kids play in the play area for a bit. When I was younger we use to come here all the time, so it just shows how great this place is.
Beecraigs Country Park Info
There are a number of parking areas where you can park. The main ones which do fill up quickly are the car park near the play area and the car park at the visitors centre. There is still other options if these are full, so don’t let a full car park turn you away.
On top of being great for walking, there is a loch if you are interested in fishing, there is archery, plenty of wildlife to see and more than often plenty of muddy puddles for the kids to jump in. My husband also likes taking his cyclo cross bike up for a ride or his mountain bike as he always goes on about the decent bike trails (he is bike mad so it must be true!) There is even a caravan park if you fancy either taking your own caravan up, camping in a tent or even if you want to book one of the new little lodges that are available.
A Normal Visit
On our last visit we parked at the visitors centre and changed into our boots. Our eldest son has just learned to ride his bike so we took his bike up so he could have a little ride. From the car park we crossed the main road and headed passed the caravan park and followed the path till we reached the big play area. Here we let the boys have a play for 30 minutes (until we got cold!) and then headed back on our walk to a path near the BBQ area.
After another 15 minutes walking we decided to walk back on ourselves and head back to the car and head home. Both boys were exhausted from having fun and we had enjoyed our walk which is what you need on a weekend/day off work.
