  • An extensive Country Park formed around two large and one smaller former reservoir ponds. A Ranger Centre, Outdoor Activities, Play Park and many birds of varying species throughout the year. Car Park charge may put off any short term visits for activities such as bird watching, only active during summer months.
  • Rangers John and (?sp) Rory were fun, enthusiastic, down to earth (literally!) and interesting on the wildflower walk in the lovely left-to-nature corner of the park. I liked that this walk was advertised as kid-friendly. Actually, I just liked the tone here. This event was enriched because John is very knowledgeable about connected things: the local history, good bike rides outwith the park, where to see lupins - all sorts! This park has watersports equipment for hire and runs taster sessions, open water swimming (specific times only), a playpark and adventure playground, high ropes bookable activities, ranger-led nature activities, orienteering, trails for kids, barbecues for hire, a cafe, something for everyone and all well advertised. It's a boon to the area - I wish we were nearer!
  • Plenty of things to do for the kids and a lovely walk around the lochs
  • Beautiful park home to two huge reservoirs. Bring your wellies - a good hour's walk around the whole thing.
  • All of us love it, fantastic place to spent a sunny day

Where to stay in Dundee

The city center of Dundee teems with hotels, from budget to high-end options. During the summer when university students are away, you can also stay in empty student accommodations. Contact the university directly if this is something that interests you. For a quieter holiday with a focus on the outdoors, consider staying in nearby Angus. Here you'll discover picturesque small towns and villages complete with charming bed and breakfasts.
