This is a 7 mile linear walk starting at the entrance to Linn Park and culminating at the top of the Cathkin Braes, linking wonderful greenspaces on Glasgow’s Southside.
The walk is essentially broken into three sections:
Section 1: Starts from the entrance gates to Linn Park, through a wooded gorge alongside the White Cart Water to Snuff Mill Bridge & Court Knowe.
Section 2: Starts from Kings Park to Ardencraig Road which entails a gradually rising, occasionally steep, walk through recently planted woodland to the mature woods of Castlemilk Park.
Section 3: The final section of our walk, is from Ardencraig to the Cathkin Braes – a steep climb which is rewarded with magnificent views over Glasgow below from Queen Mary’s seat – the highest viewpoint in Glasgow.
Walking shoes/boots & poles are essential.
