Summer Activities in the Seven Lochs

Seven lochs events

Check out what activities are happening in the seven lochs area near Red Deer Village Holiday Park  this summer. You can catch them all on your trip to Glasgow! Experience wildlife and take part in fun activities that can bring you and your whole family closer to nature. What’s even better to bring you closer to nature? Camping! The weather isn’t going to hold up for very long, so try a tenting experience while you still can!

The Seven Lochs and North Lanarkshire websites have provided information on the following activities taking place this August. To find out more, please contact us!

Palacerigg at Dusk Walk

Wednesday 14 August at Palacerigg Visitor Centre, Palacerigg Country Park

It’s difficult to catch the creatures of the night in a regular day time routine. Therefore the Countryside Ranger Service is organising a walk through the park to catch sights of animas such as owls, deer, badgers and bats. Contact them on 01236 632838. It’s a good idea to wear suitable footwear, and booking is important and spaces are limited.
