There is so much for walkers and cyclists to discover in and around Strathaven. The town centre is full of history, Strathaven is surrounded by rolling green countryside, being bounded to the south by the River Avon, a tributary of the Clyde. All of our local walking and cycling routes start in the Common Green, in the heart of Strathaven.
Three Heritage Walking Trails are available, ranging from a short trail around the town itself, to a 10 Ml trail that takes in much of the surrounding countryside. These are currently being developed into Apps for Smartphones and Tablets, and the intention is to have the trails signposted throughout the area. Watch out for more information shortly.
Trail 1: Town Trail taking in all of the major features of Strathaven. Distance 1¾ Miles
Trail 2: Golf Course Loop. Distance 5 Miles
Trail 3: Golf Course and Strathaven Brewery Loop. Distance 10 Miles.
There are many excellent cycling routes around Strathaven, some short, others more challenging.
Strathaven is in the process of developing its status as a Bike Town.
