Mugdock Country Park is running a public consultation to get feedback on how people use the park - with a questionnaire for people to answer.

The park, which straddles the border between East Dunbartonshire and Stirlingshire, comprises around 270 hectares of woodland, open moorland, lochs and castles. Over 600,000 visitors go there annually.

In addition to providing a varied programme of events, staff work throughout the year to maintain the park’s rich natural and built heritage and encourage and promote involvement with the local and wider community.

Funding is primarily provided by both councils with a charitable organisation, Mugdock Trust, carrying out further fundraising activities. Volunteers also provide in-kind assistance.

In addition, some income to the park is generated through commercial lets, room hire, ticket sales and shop sales.

A spokeswoman for the park said: “The purpose of the questionnaire is to inform and focus the direction of the services and facilities over the next few years.”

Questionnaires can be completed at mugdock-country-park.org.uk, on Facebook or by going along to Mugdock Country Park’s visitor centre.
