M&D's (Scotland's Theme Park)

South Lanarkshire | Motherwell | 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 7 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.
