The next Kirk Walk is on Saturday May 7th, 2022 and will be led by Maggie Deans. It is a local walk starting from the Kirk along the Kilmacolm Road then turning right onto a wooded path and eventually meeting Corsliehill Road and back to the village. Distance is around 4.5 miles on country roads and forest trails. One part of the trail could be a bit muddy if the rain gods are against us. Bring a flask, a snack and a sit-mat. Meet at the Kirk at 9.30 a.m.

Two walks a month are planned, occasionally cross-country walking but usually on paths or tracks.
For most walks we will meet at the Kirk at 09 30 on Saturday morning.
Should the weather be poor for a cross-country walk then we will probably change the planned walk for a tarmac based walk on the date.
Good walking boots are recommended but walking shoes and trainers will be suitable for many of the walks. Appropriate footwear for each walk will be advised.
Waterproofs or rainwear should be carried as we can never be sure of our weather.
Walks will be normally be 4 to 8 miles (2 - 5 hours) and brief descriptions of the walks will be found by clicking on the boots at the top of this page or by phoning Fergus Stewart at 613083.
A packed lunch is suggested as the walks will run through lunch time into the afternoon in many cases.
Any suggestions for future walks are welcomed.
While I will try to make myself available to lead the walks, this may not be possible throughout the year and other members of the Group may be asked to lead walks from time to time.
Please note that the Church, the Walking Group or the leader of each walk cannot accept liability for any accident which may occur on any group walk. Personal Accident Insurance is the responsibility of each walker.
Persons coming on the walks do so at their own risk.
