Quiet, local woodland on the edge of Airdrie

This calm woodland on the edge of the town is a great place for a stroll, a picnic or walk with the dog beside the Calder Water.

There’s just over a mile of gravel paths through the wood, which are ideal for walking, cycling or running – but be prepared for some long moderate slopes. There is also an 800 metre easy route which has been added to the top of the site, offering a firm, flat route for those short of time or looking for something less strenuous.

You can extend the route here along the river by following the North Calder Heritage Trail, a 10 mile (16km) walking and cycling route between Summerlee Museum of Scottish Industrial Life in Coatbridge in Coatbridge and Hillend Reservoir at Caldercruix.

You’ll find plenty of places to eat, drink and shop, and public toilets, in the centre of Airdrie.
