Things to See & Do

Drumpellier Country Park

Drumpellier Country Park, has two large natural lochs which attract a huge variety of wildlife and natural flora. The visitor centre is open all year round and contains interesting information about the history of the lochs and the wildlife in the area.

Flint tools and evidence of a crannog (an iron age dwelling on the loch held up on stilts) were discovered here. During the medieval period, Drumpellier was the farming grange of the Monks of Newbattle Abbey. With boats for hire and access to the Monkland canal to the south, this park has plenty to offer.

Activities include nature trails, orienteering and a full programme of ranger walks as well as various seasonal activities including boating and canoeing, making Drumpellier Park a great place for outdoor pursuits.
