'Simple pleasures' of walking advertised to city dwellers
Bookmark and Share
Those living and working in Scotland's largest city are being urged to go walking and enjoy the "simple pleasures" this offers.

Scottish National Heritage has published a series of pamphlets urging people in Glasgow to get out and about in the city, among its various green spaces, riverbanks and canal towpaths.

This includes walks linking Pollokshaws Park and Linn Park in the south of the city - its two largest - via the banks of White Cart Water, Glasgow Green or the River Kelvin north of the city's Botanic Gardens.

Residents who get the bug for walking may decide to take it further, get some walking boots and visit the nearby countryside, with the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park easily reached from the city.

Its attractions include hosting part of the West Highland Way and a number of Munros - mountains over 3,000 ft - including Scotland's southernmost peak in this category, Ben Lomond.
