The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

The best fish and chips anywhere! Haddock is just delightful with flakey fish covered in a lovely crispy batter. Haggis is also truly awesome and the chips, oh chips, help ma boab the chips! I don't usually lime the chunky cut but these are amazing just amazing, who knew you could do that with a potato! I'm 47 and this is the best chippy ever!

Fantastic little chip shop, everything made fresh and good prices. The food is superb

WalkingWorld.jpg
Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!

Camping and Caravaning

Rosneath Castle Park

near Helensburgh, Rosneath, Argyll G84 0QS, UK – 01436 831208

My Parents bought a caravan on this park over 20 years ago.. now I take my own kids!! Fantastically friendly place with traditional family values.. would recommend a holiday here for anyone wanting to relax and admire some of Scotland's most beautiful scenery

Excellent holiday park in a superb location. Our caravan had fabulous views all the way up the Gare Loch to The Cobbler above Arrochar. Possibly more suited to adults as, other than play park, not a great deal to keep children entertained. Good shop and bar on the site and overall, a wonderful few days break !

Dog People is such a great website if you have dogs who go on holiday with you. Just enter your location and everything from dog friendly Bed and Breakfasts and Hotels to dog friendly walks and beaches come up. The Dog People site covers Bed & Breakfast, Holiday Parks, Hotels, Self Catering, Pubs & Food, Days Out. Enjoy!
'Walks with Buggies' is a must for walking parents with young children, babies or even grannies and grandpas! If you would like to walk around Faslane Naval Base or Dunbartonshire just select your nearest town, length of walk and type of walk. You will not only be able to download detailed OS maps free of charge but you can read reviews of walks and their ratings - and add your own afterwards! Enjoy
