Details Of The Walks
The Glasgow Mighty Stride route has changed for 2017 – next year we’re all very excited to set off from our brand new start at Glasgow Green.
A staggered start at 09:00am gets the Mighty Stride, and the first Kiltwalk of 2017, underway.
The 2017 route follows the Clyde Walkway and takes our Mighty Striders on a unique urban tour of Glasgow.
The Mighty Stride joins National Cycle Route 7 (NCR7) and makes its way westwards on the banks of the Clyde, passing iconic Glasgow venues, The Hydro and SECC.
Pit Stop number 1 is up next, found at the stunning and world famous Riverside Museum and presents the first chance for our walkers to stop for a snack, a refreshment and a photo at the Zaha Hadid designed Clydeside landmark.
The Mighty Stride then continues to move west through Scotstoun to Pit Stop 2 at Yoker Sports Centre.
Next stop is in Clydebank and Pit Stop 3, where the Big Strollers get in on the action at 11:00am.
From there, the walk starts to get more scenic and follows the Forth and Clyde Canal, towards Bowling, where Pit Stop 4 is situated in a prime position for walkers to take in the Clyde and enjoy a well-earned break.
The route continues to move away from the city on NCR7 into Dumbarton Town Centre and across the River Leven before arriving at Pit Stop 5 at Dalreoch.
We then enter the most scenic and picturesque area of the walk and move onto the banks of the river through Alexandria and Renton, to Vale of Leven where Pit Stop 6 can be found at Millburn Park.
The final stretch heads towards Balloch, where our end site for all three distances – The Kiltwalk Village, can be found on the Bonnie Banks of Moss O Balloch Park.
Here you’ll find a hot meal, the bar and all the fun and entertainment the Kiltwalk Village has to offer until the site closes at 10:00pm.
The Wee Wander starts at 12:00pm from our end site and makes its way round Balloch Country Park. Pit Stop 7 is found at the midpoint of the Wee Wander, before the route returns to the end site at Moss O Balloch Park.
