Set in the hills to the south-east of Cumbernauld, Palacerigg Country Park is signposted from the town centre road network.
The park is less than half an hour's drive from Glasgow, Motherwell, Stirling or Falkirk. Established in the early 1970s, Palacerigg has been developed around the objectives of conservation, environmental education and countryside recreation.
More than 40 hectares of what was once a bleak upland farm have been planted with hundreds of thousands of native trees and shrubs.
This new, sheltered environment provides a sanctuary for wildlife including thriving populations of roe deer, badger, fox and hare as well as sparrowhawk, kestrel, long-eared and short-eared owl.
The countryside ranger service based in the park specialise in tailoring environmental education in the countryside to meet the demands of the national 5-14 curriculum, youth groups and adult groups.
