Plans are well underway for Clyde Muirshiel Walking Festival 2020.
As things stand at present we have 16 walks lined up all led by amazing local volunteers who have “stepped up” to the role and offering their own time to guide visitors around the Park. With more potential walks being looked into…. so watch this space.
Now in its third year and co-ordinated by Park staff, the Walking festival is not only aimed at introducing walking routes to visitors its also a way of encouraging them to consider joining a local walking group and getting out more often. The walks aren’t all hill bagging slogs , although we have a few of those, we are trying to appeal to all level of walkers from beginners to those more experienced walkers.
One of the walk leaders Jenni Murray, health walk Co-ordinator for the Inverclyde Bothy, has signed up to lead a stroll around the Greenock Cut and is keen to get people out of doors
“I get to see everyday the benefits that walking outdoors can have on peoples physical health and general wellbeing. We are spoiled in Inverclyde – we have great places to walk, including the Clyde Muirshiel Park and wonderful views of the Clyde and beyond to enjoy as we stroll. The Festival is a great way for us enjoy walking in small groups and for walk leaders to share their passion for the routes they are passionate about.”
A few of the walks have been finalised and are now live, tickets can be purchased through the Parks event page. http://clydemuirshiel.co.uk/events/2020-05/
