Gleniffer Braes

Rating

Terrain

  • Hilly
  • Lots of woodland and moorland
  • Waterfalls and burns
  • Dams
  • Mainly trail paths
  • A cycle path - not a walk we'd recommend

Facilities

  • There are free car parks at: Glen Park, off Glenfield Road; Robertson car park, off Gleniffer Road; Sergeantlaw Road; Braehead Road; and Caplethill Road.
  • Toilets are sometimes available in the Glen Lodge Visitor Centre, but don't rely on it! We have not officially marked this car park as having toilets for this reason.

Points of Interest

  • Views across Paisley and the Lower Clyde Valley - some of the best views at Gleniffer Braes are found at the Robertson car park, off Gleniffer Road
  • Craigielinn waterfall in Glen Park

Hazards

There's a lot of rubbish around the dams near Glen Park.

 

Travel Information

  • Drive - Park at Glen Park, off Glenfield Road; Robertson car park, off Gleniffer Road; Sergeantlaw Road; Braehead Road; and Caplethill Road.
  • Walk - Gleniffer Braes is easiest to access from Glen Park, off Glenfield Road, if coming on foot.

The nearest railway station is in Barrhead, approximately 3 miles away, so we wouldn't recommend travelling by train.

Our review

Gleniffer Braes is a large country park, located just south of Paisley. You’ll enjoy Gleniffer Braes if you’re a dog walker who appreciates muddy, hilly walks, and you like a cracking view.
