Join Gillian’s Walks on an upcoming guided walk this winter. We’ll take care of all the planning and navigating for you, as well as fill the walk with fun and useful facts about the local area, flora & fauna. Walk with like-minded people in the safety of a group, make new friends and explore somewhere new.
Thurs 4th January – Winter Walk in the Lanfine Estate, Darvel
Discover the spectacular ancient woodland of Lanfine Estate in Darvel, right in the heart of the fantastic Irvine Valley. Along the way we’ll pass the infamous wild boar enclosure, hoping to see some of the family! Expect a mixture of surfaced tracks and earth footpaths. Easy | 3.5 miles | Well-behaved dogs are welcome on a short lead.
Sat 10th February – Winter Walk at Loudoun Hill
Despite being just 361m elevation, the steep slopes of Loudoun Hill certainly pack a punch and on a clear day the views from the top make it a must-do in the area. You’ve probably heard of the Battle of Loudoun Hill – now it’s time to walk in the footsteps of Robert the Bruce and William Wallace as you explore this scenic area. Expect a mixture of good footpaths and rough, steep terrain. Challenging | 2.5 miles | No dogs please – livestock on route.
Fri 8th March – Winter Walk at Caprington Castle, Kilmarnock
Have you seen Caprington Castle yet? This is one of my most popular routes! A beautiful walk through the wooded Estate leads us to the 14th century castle, still occupied today! From there we head out through the pretty hamlet of Earlston – the birthplace of Johnnie Walker, returning to the start via the golf course and former coal mining area land. Expect boggy woodland tracks and surfaced roads. Easy | 3.5 miles | Well-behaved dogs are welcome on a short lead.
