Walks for everyone
Historic walks and rights of way abound in the Douglas valley. From historic drove roads & sheiling tracks, to miners paths, the hills and dales around Douglas and Glespin have been well trodden for centuries. Our aim through the Real Group is to record, enhance, enable safe access, restore and maintain these pathways. We also aim to encourage future ongoing sustainable use of them, for the benefit, both of health and wellbeing and of the valley as a whole. We wish to preserve the past and encourage use for the future.
This walk takes about an hour from Douglas, and an hour back.
Can be accessed from Curly Brae, Blue Bridge Right of way or parking at Douglas West community woodland.
