WALK REVIEW: 3rd March 2017

Although this walk is only 1.5 miles in length, my friend and I actually walked in from the Garvock area meaning that we clocked up 4.3 miles in total. I really wasn’t sure what to expect from these woods. On the map it appeared small and inconsequential and even on our approach to it through the open grassy area known as Duloch Park, I didn’t really have high expectations for it if I am honest. I am not sure exactly why; perhaps because it is surrounded by the M90 to one side and a retail park to the other….

However, we were both very pleasantly surprised by what we found! It was such a pretty little area and the network of paths which criss-cross their way through it were very well built meaning that there was no mud to negotiate. We were able to hear the traffic from the busy motorway, however it didn’t really detract from the tranquility of the woods themselves. Bodhi, the ‘daft pup’ we were walking, had an absolute ball running around free from the constraints of his lead.

We both agreed that it is definitely a place we would happily return to another day!
