THREE-Day Clyde Muirshiel Walking Festival Includes Inverclyde Routes

Greenock Cut features in the walking festival programme

CLYDE Muirshiel Walking Festival is back for 2019 following on from the first successful event last year.

The regional park, with the help of local walk leaders, hosts a number of guided walks between Saturday 25 May and Monday 27 May. They have been planned to appeal to all levels of walker, from leisurely paced strolls to more serious hill walks.

A number of walks take place each day, led by local people from walking groups such as The Ramblers, and co-ordinated by Clyde Muirshiel Countryside Ranger Service.

Easier walks on offer include A Fairlie Awesome Walk, and Inverkip Coastal Trail and take up to two hours. Moderate walks last approximately four hours and include Greenock Cut, while the strenuous full day walks include Irish Law and Gogo Glen in North Ayrshire and The Seven Reservoirs of Inverclyde.

Mike Holcombe, senior countryside ranger, said: “It was great to see so many people signing up and giving us lots of positive feedback for the walks in 2018. This, coupled with the popularity of our own monthly ‘Walk with a Ranger’, meant it was felt that there really is a demand for walks in the park, especially walks led by knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides. This is what the Walking Festival is all about.

"The exercise coupled with the amazing views makes a walk in the park good for you physically and mentally. "While many people make use of the park's more popular trails, at 108 square miles there is so much more to explore. The walking festival aims to highlight the variety of wonderful walks available within Clyde Muirshiel.

"There are a variety of walks on offer so hopefully something for everyone -- from those just discovering the pleasures of walking to those who have been walking for years who are looking for new ideas for an easily accessible full day hill walk in challenging terrain with fantastic views.”
