Best time to visit, during Guy Fawks night or during any lightening storm. There is plenty of free parking and the views are awesome. Take refreshments as there are no facilities nearby.

Absolutely stunning place to visit in good weather. Great views of Campsies, Ben Lomond and the Cobbler with Bens Ime and Vane to the north west and Ben An to the north east. And the airport if you're into plane watching.

A must, but can be busy with dog walkers in the summer months. The Braes are especially beautiful at night, if you like star gazing. You get a great view of Paisley, Glasgow and beyond. Roads can be tricky and narrow, so watch your speed,...More

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

The park is open 24/7. There are no gates and it has a popular car park for viewing the night sky and fabulous views over the Clyde valley.

I am not sure that camping is allowed up there. Your best bet would be to contact the ranger service or someone at Renfrewshire Council to ask. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
