Part of the larger Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park, Muirshiel Visitor Centre, only 4 miles from Lochwinnoch is located high in the hills of Renfrewshire. The wonderful scenery includes the high heather hills of Misty Law and Hill of Stake (522m) or...more
Went out the North side of the loch from the Visitor Centre for the first time ever up to the old rail track, was just great and Archie really enjoyed.
That said we have done the south side from the RSBI lots of times over...More
We went as a party of 4 adults and 4 children (ages 11-15) and took the Windy Hill trail as it appeared to be most suited for the time we had available to us.
The entrance to the country park is at least 3 miles...More

Hi Jawahar thank you for your review of Muirshiel Country Park. We're glad you and the family enjoyed the walk to Windy Hill and hope to see you again soon to explore the rest of the Park. As the Country Park doesn't have a letterbox...More
Nice walk up to the mine from the visitors centre (5 miles) on a not so nice day. Lots of birds to see, unfortunately not a hen harrier on this occasion. The road at the entrance is full of pot holes so be careful with...More

Hello Salmo and thank you for your review of Muirshiel Country Park. We're sorry you didn't see a hen harrier but hope you were successful in spotting other species. The road surface at Muirshiel has become worse of late due to logging vehicles when removing...More
Visited for the first time recently, considering I live fairly near here I'm surprised I'd never been before. We walked up windy hill with our 9 year old, it definitely lived up to its name. It was a nice 2km walk and we'll definitely go...More
Went yesterday Tuesday 8/8/17 to find cafe and visitor centre shut, it now only opens at weekends and also noticed it now has limited access in the winter, sign stated toilets open 10am to 3 pm daily but when we were there the toilets were...More

Sorry to hear your visit wasn't as expected Dougie. Opening hours at Muirshiel changed two seasons ago due to cuts in budget. The Rangers open Muirshiel's toilets at the hours stated daily, however this is after opening and cleaning Castle Semple, so sometimes they can...More
Loved this country park that was off the beaten path accessed by a dingle track road with lovely views. Great marked path up to the top of Windy Hill and we also continued over to the rocky crags beyond. Great views and fab walk for...More
We had a wonderful time walking the trails today. The sun came out, the dogs had fun exploring and it was so peaceful. The visitor centre not fully open yet, but it's the first week of the season. Staff were helpful and even offered a...More
Lovely walk here with the grandchildren..
It was cold but bright and sunny with great views. The visitor centre was closed but the toilets were open, thankfully.

I'm glad you enjoyed your walk and the lovely views from Windy Hill. Sorry the Visitor Centre was not open - there is just enough people using it even on the sunny days to have it open everyday especially in winter but we do our...More
The visitor centre was closed but it is the place where a number of walks start. The best known is windy hill. It only took us about 20 mins to get to the cairn from the car park. Paths are fairly well looked after. The...More

I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to Muirshiel Country Park - it certainly is a wonderful rural destination yet is so close and accessible to Paisley/Glasgow. Over the winter we host regular star gazing sessions as it is a great 'Dark Sky' location. The tracks...More
