2/6 Calderglen Country Park, South Lanarkshire, Scotland

A country park with a variety of attractions and activities on offer, Calderglen Country Park is one to visit as soon as spring arrives. Stretching out along a 5km picturesque wooded glen, there are several waterfalls to visit along the pretty (if not so prettily named) Rotten Calder River.

Calderglen Country Park is a popular four-star tourist attraction featuring a nature trail and outdoor walks, a toddlers’ play area and adventure playground, ornamental gardens and a courtyard cafe as well as an 18-hole golf course for adults.

A zoo and tropical conservatory add even more to the attraction and the low entry price makes it a very affordable day out. Children can see meerkats, monkeys and other furry friends in the mini zoo before heading to explore the tropical greenhouse for a taste of the rainforest in Scotland.

Price: Adult tickets cost £1.40, child tickets cost 50p. Under-3s are free.
