Self led activities

Going it alone

At Eglinton Country Park we understand that many groups have the understanding, knowledge and necessary skills to run a group without the aid of the countryside ranger service. Our rangers provide an excellent service but we welcome and are more than happy to accommodate independent groups.

Booking procedure for self led groups

We advise you to call in advance. This is to prevent any disappointment on the day as ranger led activities will be given priority of areas within the park and facilities.

We have a gift shop in the visitor centre where children can bring pocket money to purchase souvenirs. With advanced notice of visits, both your staff and ours can prepare for the enjoyable but hectic influx of children.

Activities available for self led groups

Please have a look at our Guide/advice for Teachers and Group leaders (PDF 378Kb) for all activities.

ID Keys to support the above

As with any visit to the countryside we would like to encourage all visitors to please leave an area as you find it and have fun!
