Springtime tips

Be prepared for all seasons
Winter may be behind us, but the spring weather likes to keep us on our toes! Waterproofs and warmer layers can help us be prepared for those spring showers, and cooler mornings and evenings.

Respect your surroundings
A spring walk comes with the joy of  greenery, flowers and wildlife, to keep enjoying it, we need to be respectful of nature.

Be aware of nesting birds and animals, follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code, and if you're enjoying a picnic, remember to find a bin or take your rubbish home with you.
