Available In Local Shops and the Library!

For residents and visitors alike there’s an amazing variety of walks right on our doorstep. You can walk the glen, wander along the river, explore woods and parkland, or amble along the Carse of Lecropt.  These varied habitats support bluebells, primroses, rare orchids, and ancient ash woodland. You may be lucky and see a kingfisher, heron, dipper, salmon, swans or deer.

Among the many historic features of interest are: the old dye works, the quarry, the copper mine, the historic village of Blairlogie, the Wallace Monument, Stevenson’s cave, Fountain of Ninevah, and so much more  

The Paths Leaflet comprises a map showing six key walks, with a detailed description of where to go and what you’ll see on each one.  The walks all start and finish at the car park off Fountain Road, and extend to between 2 and 5 miles.  Leaflets are available in: the Library, the Allan Leisure Centre and various shops and cafes in Bridge of Allan. So do pick up your copy. If you run a local business please consider making leaflets available to visitors.  

The leaflet was updated and reprinted with funding from the Stirling Council Community Pride Fund and Bridge of Allan Community Council.  Contact: Sandi Grieve, 01786 833255, for copies.
