From the White Bridge to the World War 2 Ack Ack battery and back.

This walk is somewhat longer than most of the ones for which a route map has been made. It is best in the Summer when it is hot as a lot of it is under the trees.

The best route out is up and across the meadow, then through the Linn Cemetery.

If you are taking a dog with you PLEASE keep it under close control.

At the far end of the Cemetery, enter the woods between some large rocks [placed there to stop vandals and cars]. Follow what is a mixture of old farm roads, and some walker's paths down to the Bailey Bridge opposite the Overlee Playing Fields. From there on it is a scramble up the hill to the old Television Tower, now used for Mircrowave Communications. The return journey is easier: follow the farm road and then take the path through the woods down to cross Lainshaw Drive. Then back via the Top Wood and down the meadow.

The route is shown here.


One can often see Roe deer in the woods - there is quite a reasonable population.
