M&D's (Scotland's Theme Park)
M&D's self-claimed title of "Scotland's Theme Park" is a bit cheeky - there are other theme parks in Scotland. But it's definitely the biggest and most popular, occupying a site overlooking Strathclyde Loch near Motherwell, close to Glasgow. An indoor tropical rainforest, crazy golf and other attractions complement seven roller coasters as well as various smaller rides. Compared to major English, European or North American theme parks it's tame, but much cheaper and good fun for a day out.
