Glennifer Braes is a great place to spend an afternoon exploring. There is the Craigielinn waterfall to see, which is best to see after it has been raining when it is in full flow. There is a woodland walk which is beautiful in Autumn when...More

Went there on Sunday with my 2 dogs. We enjoyed the fresh air and the woods. There is also a small waterfall. Dogs could be let off the leash and be safe, we had a great time, Very popular with other dog walkers.

Tremendous panoramic view of the Clyde valley from the Robertson car park.On a clear day you can see Arran and Ben Lomond. Great walking opportunities and ideal if you are a photographer , plane spotter or dog walker.

Looking down over Elderslie, Johnstone and Paisley and watching the planes coming in and out of Glasgow airport, this is a fabulous view. There's a nice walk over the hill and a small children's play area, but it is the view that makes it special.
