Walking Group

Under the leadership of the Mission Group, several members and friends of the Church have decided to form a walking group. Over the past year, many local paths have been trod, sometimes in good weather, others not so good. However, they have always been enjoyable.

On 4 May, 14 walkers enjoyed a lovely four mile walk around the Dumbreck Marsh. We finished up at the new coffee shop in the Scarecrow for tea/coffee, scones and a chat. Next walk will be on Saturday 8 June meeting at the church at 10.15am. Transport will be by car to Lidl, Kirkintilloch and we will walk from there to Milton of Campsie where we will stop at Billingtons before returning to Kirkintilloch. If you enjoy walking and would prefere to walk in the company of others, please put this date in your diary and come along. 

This part of the walk is named Balcastle Farm Woodland Trail and shows some of the group walking towards Kilsyth, with the Northfield area in the distance.

Walks will continue over the summer months with details being in the Order of Service and also on the website. Next walk will be on Saturday 8 June meeting at the Church at 10.15. Transport will be by car to Lidl at Kirkintilloch and we will walk from there to Milton of Campsie where we will stop at Billingtons before returning to Kirkintilloch. Walks will continue over the summer months with details in the Order of Service and here on the website.

The first walk of the year was on Saturday 6 April 2019. We met at 10.30 in the Coachman car park and walked out to Colzium Estate stopping at the Visitor Centre for tea/coffee. We had a further walk around part of the estate before making our way back to the Coachman car park. We all thoroughly enjoyed the walk and chat along the way even although the weather wasn't too kind to us. 

We all thoroughly enjoyed the walk and the chat along the way even though the weather wasn't particularly nice. We are now looking forward to our next outing which will be on Saturday 4 May when we will meet at the Church at 10.30 for a walk to Dumbreck Marsh. We will have tea/coffee in the new coffee shop in Kilsyth on our return.

This is an ideal opportunity, particularly for those who do not like to walk on their own, to enjoy some gentle exercise in the company of others. Come on your own or with a friend; you will be warmly welcomed.

We enjoyed lovely walks last summer. *Previous years' walks can be found on our archive pages. This has been an excellent opportunity for people who do not like to go walking on their own to enjoy our lovely countryside, having a chat along the way and tea/coffee stop.

We do not normally meet over the winter months but this could be up for discussion. Watch this space for our new start-up date. We are always delighted when we are able to welcome new members to share in the enjoyment which comes from walking in good company.
