Mugdock Country Park is a country park and historical site located partly in East Dunbartonshire and partly in Stirling, in the former county of Stirlingshire, Scotland. It is to the north of Glasgow, next to Milngavie.

The park includes the remains of the 14th-century Mugdock Castle, stronghold of the Grahams of Montrose, and the ruins of the 19th century Craigend Castle, a Gothic Revival mansion. The park has a moot hill and gallowhill, historical reminders of the baronial feudal right, held by lairds, of 'pit and gallows'. Natural features include the Allander Water, Mugdock Loch, and Drumclog Muir. Visitor facilities include a visitor centre and cafe in the former Craigend Castle stable block, and a garden centre in the walled garden.
