Favourite Top 20 Walks

Best twenty walks in Scotland for children?   Probably not.

Self indulgence?   Absolutely.

This is our favourite twenty walks. We live just outside Glasgow, so as you might expect there’s a huge bias towards walks which are relatively close to where we live, and many of those mentioned we’ve walked several times.

When deciding on our list, of course the walk and surroundings were important but there were so many other factors. These included nearby play-parks, nice places to eat especially chippies, ducks to feed, general morale at the time and whether the sun was shining. Basically, it boils down to having a great day out whilst wandering about the great outdoors of Scotland. When you’re out and about it’s always fun.
