Muiravonside Country Park

The 170 acre, Muiravonside Country Park is 2 miles south of Grangemouth, open all-year round with lots to do including nature trails, picnic sites, play areas and Newparks farm.

Visitors can follow the River Avon Heritage Trail around the Park past the historic Avon Aqueduct and see the relics of bygone industry and farming.

Muiravonside Country Park offers panoramic views, a spectacular river gorge and several relics of industrial archaeology, linked by a network of paths through a diverse ground flora. Over 90 species of bird have been recorded.

Whilst at the Park, why not take a wander around Newparks Farm where our charming collection of animals always surprise and delight:

  • Highland cattle – Billy and Freddie
  • Equine 'staff' - Hamish the Clydesdale Horse, Charlie the Shetland Pony, Robbie (a rescued Shetland pony we took from the SSPCA), and our donkeys Sid and Sparkle
  • Pigs - Henrietta, Horace, Boris, Morris and Doris (the Kunekunes)
  • Goat - Rosie
  • Llamas - Toffee and Fudge
  • Alpacas - Gromit
  • A small flock of Soay sheep complete the line-up
  • Come along and say a warm welcome to Chico, the new Amazon parrot!

The restored farm steading buildings house an assortment of smaller animals including numerous rabbits, guinea pigs and exotic birds whilst the nearby wildfowl pond and bird enclosures contain the flocks of larger birds like chickens, geese and ducks.

There is also a play park and café within the park, a great place to spend a family day out.

Muiravonside has also been used as a film location for the hugley popular Outlander TV Series. Visit Scotland have an excellent Outlander Fim Location map which you can access here, to dowloand the Outlander brochure click here.
