Stroll beside a woodland burn or head into the hills

From the pretty village of Clachan of Campsie, with its historic church, wind along grassy slopes into the Campsie Glen. Wander along the path beside the Kirk Burn, or stop for a feed at one of the many picturesque picnic spots beneath the trees.


Explore further

For a more energetic outing, follow the path behind Clachan of Campsie that forks steeply uphill from the burn to reach a car park on the B822 with lovely views into the glen. From here you can choose a path around the hill to see waterfalls along the burn below or carry on climbing along a steep, rough trail to reach the ridge of the Campsie Fells above.
