We're helping people with dementia to enjoy the benefits of walking
Get your colleagues together and feel the benefits of walking more this spring
Ramblers Scotland and The Mountains & the People project have joined forces to offer a programme of free short walks (3 – 5 miles) this spring in both the Cairngorms and Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Parks.
These walks offer an ideal next step progression for those taking part in Health Walks and feel ready to progress to slightly longer walks. The walks are over easy terrain and led at a gentle pace by friendly, knowledgeable Ramblers leaders. The walks also provide an opportunity to get outdoors and discover interesting new places to walk, making the most of our national parks and learning more about the local area.
Members of Walk in the Park Project feel this has opened up new opportunities to extend their walking from their usual Health Walk and offers the chance to walk for longer, on slightly harder terrain and in a new location. They are already planning their next challenge.
The walks offer plenty of fun, friendship and fresh air so join in for some great walks in good company in and around your local area.
What walks are available?
Ramblers volunteers from across Scotland have come together to offer a range of introductory walks in both National Parks. You can download the details of the walks below, however new dates will be added to the Mountains and the People website at www.themountainsandthepeople.org.uk throughout the year.
