Falkirk is the Best Walking Destination!
In a recent public vote, Falkirk in Scotland was unveiled as the UK’s best neighbourhood for walking. So why not grab your walking boots and discover why it has beaten nine other towns in the UK to win The Ramblers’ annual Best Walking Neighbourhood Award.
Falkirk is world-famous for its giant horse sculptures at Helix Park; French-style, honey-co oured Chateau; and beautiful parks. With its crowd-free tranquillity it really is a fabulous place to explore on foot.
In recent years Falkirk council has collaborated with local communities to transformed the area into a place that is enjoyable and easy to walk around, building a real culture of walking. The countryside in Falkirk is a haven for wildlife and the scenery in the area is a stunning backdrop for afternoon picnic stops.
Falkirk has been famous for its many walking routes over the years with over 383 miles of signposted paths, hiking trails and outdoor adventures.
Also shortlisted for the award were Elgin in Scotland, Aberystwyth in Wales, Chorlton and Whalley Range in Greater Manchester, Bow and Three Mills in London, The Deepings in Lincolnshire, Cambridge and Brighton.
Heading outdoors has some incredible health benefits and it’s a great way to experience the beautiful scenery we have here in Scotland.
Walking has been proven to reduce stress, improve mood and combat depression.
