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

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.

My favourite area is around the two dams that used to supply water for the Glenfield Scouring works. The dams are set in lovely woodland with lots of different paths. It's a great place for dog walking too. You can walk from Barrhead along the...More

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.
