Planned Walks 

These are the dates and details for up and coming walks.  Where possible we have included information about an alternative route if conditions are not suitable for the planned walk. Walks start outside the MacRobert Centre on Saturday mornings at 10:30am and last 1.5 to 2 hours.



Blackhill and Whitehill (alternate route)
Date: 13 Jan 2018
Start time: 10:30 AM
End time: 12:30 PM
We take the Sheriffmuir Road uphill which gives views of the winding River Forth and the distant Pentland Hills near Edinburgh. We come to two contrasting areas of woodland. We can promise you plenty of fresh air and open vistas. This walk has some long uphill stretches - duration 1.5 to 2 hours. If the weather's poor we may divert to a walk round the Campus.
Hermitage Woods V1
Date: 20 Jan 2018
Start time: 10:30 AM
End time: 12:30 PM
Within minutes of entering the woodland you are in an elevated position and can look down at the University Campus and over the Forth Valley. The University of Stirling acquired Airthrey Estate in 1966. A hermitage, or woodland retreat, was built and occupied occasionally during the late eighteenth century. We do a complete circuit of the wood before re-entering the Campus. This walk has some short steep uphill stretches - duration 1.5 to 1.75 hours. If the weather's poor we may divert into bridge of Allan to look for Herons.
Blairlogie ( winter version)
Date: 27 Jan 2018
Start time: 10:30 AM
End time: 12:30 PM
Our walks not only provide interest but you will get a good work-out on this walk which traverses fields and woodlands. Blairlogie is a historic village with fascinating traditional architecture – look for the crow step gables. This is a winter version of our normal walk so we avoid the uphill rough stretch back from Blairlogie. This walk is fairly flat with only a few short uphill stretches - duration 1.5 to 2 hours. If the weather's poor we may divert to a walk to Hawes Park in Bridge of Allan .
