Explore the Geological Site at Calderglen Country Park
 

Calderglen Country Park is located on the boundary of the new town of East Kilbride and was officially designated and opened to the public in 1982.

Formerly part of the Calderglen and Torrance Country Estates, the park extends along a scenic wooded glen forged out by the Rotten Calder River, a tributary of the River Clyde.

The Glen extends over 5 km and has many attractive waterfalls and important geological features. The Northern section of the park is a Geological Site of Special Scientific Interest
 

Calderglen's Great Visitor Attractions
 

Calderglen's scenic landscape and range of facilities and services promise to make the park a great family day out with lots of fun things to do.

The main visitor attractions and facilities are centred around the historic Torrance House which hosts a variety of both professional and amateur art work in its exhibition areas. Also at Torrance House is the Courtyard Café which is great place to indulge in some tasty refreshments and ice cream.


Nearby is the conservatory with reception, gift shop, tropical plants from around the world and an ornamental garden area.

The children’s zoo has a wide range of animals including owls, marmosets, wallabies and the ever popular and watchful meerkats, who “guard” the zoo!

There is an extensive event and activities programme throughout the year organised by the zoo, conservatory staff and country park rangers.

The park also contains a toddler’s play area, large adventure play area, golf course and sports facilities.

Calderglen Park also hosts a variety of events throughout the year.

Entrance to the park is free.

The nearby Langlands Moss Local Nature Reserve is a great example of the increasingly rare lowland raised bogs. A raised wooden platform walk allows visitors to see the bog up close.

Leaflets on walks and trails are available from the visitor centre.

While in East Kilbride, why not visit the award-winning National Museum of Rural Life which is located nearby.
