THERE is lots on at Mugdock Country Park just now to keep visitors of all ages entertained.

Tomorrow (Saturday) children can develop their scavenging skills by scouring the park for photographic clues to find the location from which each photo was taken within the time limit.

Event is from 2pm to 4pm. Meet at the Visitor Centre, Mugdock Country Park.

There’s also a chance to learn the ancient art of longbow shooting with the Green Hollow Bowmen and the Ranger Service on Sunday between 1.45pm and 4pm.

A family friendly event is being held on Tuesday in Lenzie from 1pm to 2.30pm.
