Inner Forth Wanderings and Windings Project

Last week I was fortunate enough to be invited by Inner Forth Futures to join them for a preview of their new Wanderings and Windings walking and cycling routes.

After a lovely sunny walk around Gartmorn Dam accompannied by a Clackmannanshire Council ranger we retreated to the cafe/visitor centre for coffee and scones and a look at the route plans.

Wanderings and Windings is a project financed primarily by a National Heritage Lottery Fund grant to create 8 walking and cycling routes around the Inner Forth area. With input from community groups and the public the draft plans for these routes are now in place. It’s not too late to get involved and help finalise these routes by joining the Wanderings and Windings Facebook Group.

Although making use of existing paths and tracks, the new routes will all be waymarked and be accompanied by an information leaflet. Check out the draft proposals on the Inner Forth website. Please remember though that routes are still subject to change!

The routes are scheduled for launch in October 2019. Watch this space for further updates.
