Make Your Way Abington

River Walk

  • Filed under
  • Difficulty (out of 3):
    Easy - Tarmac and/or pavements; flat; wide; suitable for all shoes; places to stop and easy to follow. Medium - Potentially boggy; wellies or boots recommended; not flat; easy obstacles; relatively easy to follow.

This series of active travel maps have been created in collaboration with community members from Abington, Crawford and Elvanfoot, Crawfordjohn, Douglas, Glespin, Lamington, Leadhills and Rigside. They form a collection of eight co-designed maps that highlight cycling and walking routes that are known to local people. These routes can be used for practical journeys, for leisure and for exercise. 

The maps also include information on local services, amenities, and point of interest as well as highlighting the benefits of active travel for your health and the environment. If you are a visitor, please respect the local community - use active travel, public transport or if you are driving, use designated parking areas. Take your litter home or dispose of it in bins provided.
