Cuningar Loop

Cuningar Loop is an exciting woodland park in Rutherglen, near the east end of Glasgow. 15 hectares of derelict land - the size of 15 football pitches - has been transformed into a community greenspace for local people and visitors to get involved, get active and be inspired by the outdoors.

The site features:

  • An extensive path network
  • Adventure play facilities
  • A bike skills area
  • Scotland’s first outdoor bouldering park
  • A woodland workout
  • Large meadow and picnic areas
  • An outdoor classroom
  • A riverside boardwalk


The bike track is designed to introduce cycling to people with a wide range of abilities and ages. There are three tracks: balance bike, pump and skill building. 

Adventure play

The adventure play area is suitable for everyone and is designed to challenge users to explore the freedom of play in an active way.


There are over 2.5 kilometres of paths on mixed surfaces which are accessible to everyone and have plenty of seating.

Cuningar Stones

The Cuningar Stones is a permanent public art project by Glasgow based artist James Winnett. The 15 stones can be found across the Cuningar Loop, with many reflecting the history of the site and local area.
