A lovely country park, no matter what season always different and can be very busy. Pipe band competitions, farming from the past museum and exhibitions. The cafe is run by the same family as the Saplinbrae Hotel, worth a visit.

It was very interesting to see/read/hear about farming in Scotland and this was the main reason we came to the area. We didn't realize it was part of the Aden Country Park so we had "problems" locating it - thinking we weren't in the right place. Just follow the Park signs, though, and you'll be o.k. There is so much... More

It's got everything. Ample parking, restaurant, play area for the kids, plenty of room for them to run about and explore. Great for walking the dog to. Been here a few times and still not got round it all. Picnic areas all around the park
