Walking in the Garnock Valley
The Walking in The Garnock Valley Project aims to encourage and support more walking around the Garnock Connections project area. There is lots of beautiful countryside and miles of coastline to be explored and we want to give people more opportunities to do just that.
The Walking in the Garnock valley project will work with volunteers to train more walk leaders who are confident to lead a variety of walks in the area. Volunteers will receive walk leader training and support in organising and leading guided walks.
A programme of guided walks during the Garnock Connections delivery phase will establish the walk leaders and build a self-sustaining network that will continue to facilitate access to heritage sites and the wider landscape long after the Garnock Connections programme has come to an end.
