M74 Junction 5 dog walk near Motherwell, Scotland



A very handy stopping point whether you're heading north or south, as this enormous park spans almost the complete distance between Junctions 5 and 6.   Enjoy a tranquil leafy walk alongside the loch or, if you have kids to please, there's a beach and funfair/theme park that should satisfy younger passengers.   Update:  a DwD member recently visited the park and found things had changed. Please read her review below.

Not a safe place to walk esp with kids

I dropped my husband and teenage kids with the dog to go for a walk mid afternoon whilst I took the car to charge it up for the next leg of our journey south. He called me after 10 mins to come back. There were a lot of people especially around the theme park but many very drunk and some scoring drugs in the bushes. The lake was not pleasant enough for the dog to swim (many weeds and algae) and our doggie loves to swim every day come rain or shine. There’s nowhere to get a nice drink or bite to eat and the atmosphere is quite rough. Not a pleasant experience at all. We have stopped at lots of other walks recommended but won’t be stopping here again. Sorry!
