A meandering path along the burn in a beautiful natural setting. You can take your dog/family with you. Outside holidays it is nice, quiet and every season it is different. It is well maintained (lets keep it!) and for all ages. A perfect retreat.

Easily accessible from town and an easy walk that takes about an hour each way if you have children with you. There is lots to see, even in winter, and plenty of rest points on the way up. The car park is not massive so...More

Head to Bellingham and you will see the signpost for the car park where the walk begins. Even if the small car park is full there is plenty of parking nearby. And a very nice cafe in the village if you don't have a picnic....More

Came here today, and the walk was lovely, the paths are very well maintained-you can't get lost (which is a worry of mine, being a solo hiker) it can be steep in places so make sure you have suitable footwear. It really is a magical...More

As previous answers - allow about an hour and a half. It's a steady walk, gently uphill on the way there.
