Celebrating Scotland's Walking Champions.

Our regular Monday Health Walks have now finished their fifth season but will return after the winter break.

This year the Plean Health Walk was nominated for a Paths for All award as the Health Walk Group of the Year and our line manager Tricia Cumming of the Stirling Walking Network was nominated as Volunteer Manager of the Year.

Tricia receiving her award

As a satisfying end to our walks for this year we were invited to a reception at the Scottish Parliament "Celebrating Scotland's Walking Champions" on the 4th November.

Although Plean didn't ultimately win the group award we were delighted to be with Tricia to celebrate as she received her award as Volunteer Manager of the Year.

Walking reduces the risk of many diseases including cancer, heart disease and diabetes so we would encourge everyone to go for even a short walk as often as possible.

During the winter months in the park some of the paths can become dangerous as the weather takes it's toll. Great care must be taken on any muddy or icy surfaces particularly if you are out walking on your own.

Keep safe and enjoy the park!
