The Walks

This site is mostly about shorter, dog friendly walks in Southern Scotland and Northern England. Places that you can take your dog for an hour or two and enjoy the countryside.You will find a selection of some our favourite walks in the photographs on this page. To access the walks, click on the index button above to see a list all the walks. The walks can also be accessed from the picture gallery below. Swipe right or left or use the arrow buttons to view the gallery, and touch or click on a picture to access the details for that walk.
Some car parks may be closed after extreme weather, so please check out any website information before travelling.

Each walk has its own page, with details of the routes, photographs, a map and also some information about places on interest on the route and some historical details. I don't give you a step by step guide to every walk, just a pointer in the right direction. Each walk also has a map that opens in a new window.

Roslyn Glen
Sometimes muddy, but always beautiful walks in Roslyn Glen, near Edinburgh.

North East England and Southern Scotland are both full of sites of historical interest, a legacy of the wars between the two countries. Of course some of the history goes back to Roman times, when Scotland and England did not exist. I'm always interested in the history around me, and especially in the folk tales and quirky stories that accompany these places. I've tried to describe some of them in each walk.

Featured Walk - Pittencrief Park in Dunfermline

Pittencrieff Park is on the western edge of Dunfermline in Fife, and is especially pretty in the Autumn.
Pittencrieff Park, or 'The Glen', is a large park in Dunfermline town, with a cafe, museum, public toilets, formal gardens and the site of King Malcolm's tower. The winding paths through the glen are really picturesque and popular with dog owners. Dunfermline town with all its amenites is right at the entrance gates.
