Muirshiel Visitor Centre

(Muirshiel Country Park)

Located within Calder Glen, on the eastern edge of the Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park, the Muirshiel Visitor Centre comprises a car park and base for accessing a range of trails that extend through mixed woodland, or lead out on to the moor where visitors can see the remains of the 'grouse railway' built in the 1920s to transport shooting parties to grouse butts and an old barytes mine. The country park is surrounded by a Special Protection Area of international importance for its breeding population of hen harriers. The visitor centre provides a base for countryside rangers and includes an exhibition on hen harriers, including a nest camera, together with a cafe and small gift shop.
