    Iv been to Strathcylde but havent been to the other you have mentioned, where abouts is the other one? I usually go to any foot paths etc near my area but fancy trying out a good countrypark for a change.

    Its next to Hamilton. You should be able to Google it, and the postcode is on their website. I loved it! It has several different trails and tells you the distance. I def recommend it.

    Mugdock park......it has a ruined castle, visitors centre, loch and more different walks than you can shake a stick at. It was one of the first places that my now hubby took me to when we walked his familys first rough collie.
