The Mindfulness walk

The Mindfulness Walk is specially designed for individuals and small groups looking for some quiet time away from busy city life.

The Mindfulness Walk

Get back in touch with nature and with your inner self.

The Mindfulness Walk is specially designed for individuals and small groups looking for some quiet time away from busy city life. It gives them a chance to let go and appreciate the present moment.

We follow the simple concept that we are walking in nature, paying attention to the present moment rather than past or future thoughts.

We walk calmly and silently, in groups of three or four, connecting with beautiful nature and aware of the present moment, so that by the end of the walk participants are calmer in mind and body and feel at one with nature.


The walk is a day tour and we stop for a lunch during the walk. We will end the walk by having a coffee together which gives you an opportunity to share your experience with the rest of the group and some social interaction. The best of both worlds!

The Multicultural Walk

This walk offers a superb combination of culture and nature. The walk will take you through beautiful Scottish landscapes.

The Multicultural Walk

Designed to help people who are working to make Scotland their new home.

This walk is particularly designed to help refugees and asylum seekers. In beautiful surroundings, people who may feel lonely or afraid have the opportunity to talk with others who have been on a similar life journey.

As participants connect both with nature and with people from different cultures, they will have a chance to share their stories and their experiences. They will get a chance to learn more about their new home from those who have been here longer than them (including the walk guides).

And through the sharing of stories, customs, and diverse food, they will have the time to make supportive new friendships and learn more about the landscape and the people of Scotland.


The walk will begin in the heart of Milngavie at the official start of West highland way. It will then follow the west highland way through the Mugdock country park passing the west side of Craigallan Loch. The journey will offer beautiful countryside with woodland, farmland and from a distance the view of the highland’s glorious hills.

Safe walks for elderly Asian and black and ethnic minority groups.

The Health Walk

Safe walks for elderly Asian and black and ethnic minority groups

Older people can often suffer from loneliness as well as physical and social challenges – and this can be even for people from Asian and black and minority ethnic groups. Cultural differences and language barriers can make it even harder to initiate new friendships and share in the community.

The Health Walk aims to provide suitable and safe guided walks for elderly people from Asian and black and minority ethnic groups who are, or may be at risk of loneliness. In a safe and facilitated environment, they are encouraged to take gentle and invigorating exercise whilst enjoying the company of others from diverse backgrounds

The Art Walk

Walking as an artform is a meditative, therapeutic and poetic experience and it can also be a greatly social one.

The Art Walk

Walking as an artform is a meditative, therapeutic and poetic experience and it can also be a greatly social one.

we lead group artwalk workshops in which the intent is to encourage others to examine their surroundings in a deeper way. To create with a group is an easy way in which participants can gain a meditative, therapeutic experience.

In this workshop we will create ‘seedbombs’ - balls of earth, clay and wildflower seeds- to be thrown into wastelands and areas that could benefit from potential life and beauty.

Whether the seeds grow or not is unimportant, the creative act is the shared memories and experience we have formed together from encounters of the day in which participants reconnected with the natural environment and with a creative part of themselves.
