The group meets every Tuesday morning at 10am at Whitelee visitor centre between March and December. The walk starts at ~10am, covers ~4 miles, and takes approximately 1.5 hours with parents pushing their babies all bundled up in their push chairs/strollers. Grandparents, friends and the family dog are welcome to come along as well. The walk is free and there is no need to book in advance – just come along and join the group, enjoy the walk and have a good chat with fellow parents along the way.
The group is informal and members can come and go depending on how busy they are each week. The group meet at the main entrance gate into the operational windfarm (next to the large threshold information sign), before heading out. When the weather is poor the group may decide to take a shorter route and when conditions are good – enjoy stretching their legs over the full distance, taking in some spectacular views along the way. The countryside rangers accompany the group all the way to provide help if required.
During the winter months of December, January and February, due to the closure of the visitor centre, the group go on location at parks around the partner councils of the Whitelee Access Project. At the winter locations, Rouken Glen Park, Dean Castle Country Park and Calderglen Country Park, the walk lengths are approximately 4 miles but are on various surfaces.
Please contact the countryside rangers for further information or if you have any questions.
