Stirling walking network

SWN cover

Interested in finding a fun and easy way to get fit, lose weight and meet new friends? If yes, come along and join one of our walks.

The Stirling walking network project comprises of volunteer lead walks in local communities to increase the health and wellbeing of those who attend the walks.  There is now a pathway of walks to take you from a gentle stroll to a more strenuous walk, enabling you to increase and maintain your fitness levels.

Walking is known to benefit mental health, improve health and fitness, protect against Illness and help manage weight.  Join us for a stroll, socialising with new people and for some fresh air.

Walk type

Health walks - These walks (average 2km) are for those who are new to walking or wanting to increase their activity levels and those who may be recovering from an illness or operation.  These walks are usually on flat, even surfaces and last
between 30 - 45 minutes.  Please arrive 10 minutes early on your first day in order to fill in a short health questionnaire.  No need to book.  These walks take place weekly in Bridge of Allan, Dunblane, Killearn and surrounding villages, St. Ninians, Stirling Community Hospital and the City Centre.

Walk forward walks - These walks (average 6-8km long) are for those who are looking for a more strenuous walk. These walks are at a faster pace, can be on uneven surfaces and have some small hills/inclines.

Community walks – West Stirling Villages – These walks (average 2-4km) are for regular walkers wanting some gentle exercise on reasonably flat, good surfaced paths.

Dementia Friendly Walks - We now have several walks in our programme which are Dementia friendly. These walks have been adapted to assist those living well in the community with dementia to attend with their carer, family and friends.
