Walk with Braveheart
Do you want to become more active?
Do you want to make new friendships?
Do you enjoy being outdoors?
Not sure of walking alone?
Join us on a walk in the heart of nature with Braveheart’s free guided walks designed to support adults, of all abilities, to become more active.
Our friendly and welcoming walks also promote social inclusion within the community, and encourage the use of green space within our local area.
Exposure to green space not only allows us to spot wildlife in action, capture breathtaking views, and enjoy fresh air but has also shown to have many restorative effects; recovery from illness, stress relief, reduces anger and anxiety and increases feelings of wellbeing; helping maintain overall health in the long run.

“Safe Walking, Safe Living”
Safety is a leading barrier to being active outdoors, where inactivity is one of the 10 causes of death (World Health Organisation). Braveheart walks allow individuals to be part of a social group, enabling everyone to feel safe and supported.
Fully trained Walk Leaders
Our leaders have expert knowledge of the surrounding area and guide our walks throughout Forth Valley. They are full of ideas, and have great enthusiasm for walking outdoors.
Activities for all abilities
We offer Weekly and Monthly walks throughout Forth Valley for individuals of all abilities (please see Walking Timetable page).
Our Weekly walks last from 30 minutes to an hour long (slow and brisk pace), whereas our monthly walks are of longer duration (45minutes -1.5hrs long) and venture further afield. All walks finish with a tea and a chat in the café afterwards.
Our walks support Dementia Friendly Walking, RNIB & Forth Valley Sensory Centre support (supporting blind and partially sighted people) and have Epilepsy Awareness on many of our walks.
