What we're about
Walking can be a huge adventure for children and great fun for families. There’s lots to explore: hills to scramble up, puddles to splash in, trees to climb, insects, birds, animals and lots and lots of space for kids to run about in. Family walks aren’t only fun, they provide an important social opportunity to meet other parents and children and provide a great way for all the family to stay fit and healthy. Walking is an inexpensive way for parents to spend quality time outside with their kids. Add to that Scotland’s magnificent scenery and great landscapes, and you have the perfect adventure playground for the whole family to explore and enjoy together.
We are launching a new family walking group for Glasgow and West of Scotland from February 2018. The walks will be coordinated by Glasgow Ramblers (http://www.glasgowramblers.org.uk) but led by leaders from several Ramblers groups including Bearsden and Milngavie, Helensburgh and West Dunbartonshire, Cumbernauld and Kilsyth, Paisley, Eastwood and Glasgow Ramblers. More information about Ramblers Scotland can be found here (http://www.ramblers.org.uk/scotland.aspx).
Come along and give it a try! You do not have to be a member of Ramblers to enjoy the first two or three walks. If you are interested in joining in or finding out more about the walks, please contact the coordinator Catherine, the Secretary of Glasgow Ramblers.
Please note all children and young people under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
