If Carlsberg made Country Parks…
The bottom third/quarter of the map is Mugdock Country Park with the remainder of the walks being through the Craigallion, Carbeth and Duntreath Estates.
There’s lots of really good circular routes through dense forests and wide open moorland, with plenty of water, hills and wildlife.
If you don’t feel in the mood for a circuit you can keep walking through the Blane Valley onto Drymen, Loch Lomond, Glencoe and onwards to Ben Nevis which is a mere 95m (miles) away.
Regardless of your chosen path there’s always a sense that you’re stepping into the wilds.
