Route Managers of Scotland's Great Trails Meet in Balloch

The Route managers of Scotlands' Great Trails held their regular meeting at the National Park's Carrochan HQ building in Balloch on Wednesday 1st April, where reports were offered on progress of many of the trails including Argyll and Bute's Three Lochs and Cowal Ways. 

The new John Muir coast to coast route which links Helensburgh to Dunbar was also discussed and in the afternoon, in order to inspect a new path which has recently been completed near Goukhill, the managers walked up the Stoneymollan road which forms part of the Three Lochs and John Muir Ways between Balloch and Helensburgh.

Scotland's Great Trails (SGTs) are nationally promoted trails for people-powered journeys. Each is distinctively waymarked, largely off-road, and has a range of visitor services. At least 25 miles in length, the trails are suitable for multi-day outings as well as day trips.

Collectively, the 26 different routes provide over 1700 miles of well managed paths from the Borders to the Highlands.

The routes offer great opportunities to explore the best of Scotland's nature and landscapes and to experience the country's amazing history and culture.
