Walking in Linn Park is a pleasure - whoever you are, whatever the season or weather.
For children it is place of discovery and fun - whether its sledging and building a snowman in winter or just high jinks in the summer, or exploring the woods. Where for example is this guy ?
For older people it can be place to relax and watch the wild life whether winged, four legged, or dare it be said, two legged; or just to exercise the heart as the medical profession recommend !
And for younger people, a place to meet and chat - or even swim or fish [please remember to get a licence].
Some key points to remember about walking in Linn Park.
First of all it is a long thin park through which runs the White Cart river, much of it in a gorge with only two bridges - the White Bridge in the middle and the Snuffmill Bridge at the northern end.
Secondly because of the terrain it is quite hilly. And lastly it is a "country park" so expect some mud and some puddles ...
The routes within Linn Park are to some extent restricted by the two bridges over the River: The White Bridge in the middle of the park, and the Snuff Mill Bridge at the northern end
You may print the maps of the walks we have listed. Enjoy, and always behave responsibly.
We have recently [December 2018] begun updating the maps of the paths to show the type of path, and hazards - like steps, puddles, and likely places where ice often forms. The color key is as follows where:
- The route runs along a public road - shown thus: ,
- The route uses a "park road" - shown thus: ,
- The route follows a path which has been tarmacced - shown thus: [thinner than above],
- The route follows a "hard path" - that is one which has a wearing surface - shown thus: ,
- The route is natural - usually just well trodden grass - shown thus: .
Once the route has been revamped, it has been added to the menu under "Mapped Walks".
