Whitelee Stroller Striders is a popular walking group for expectant and new parents as well as family members, friends and well behaved dogs. The walk is a great way to meet other parents and get some healthy exercise.
The group will run with Covid-19 safety measures in place - call or email for bookings and further information.
Where and when to meet and Covid-19 Measures:
In a change from previous years the group will meet at 10am every Friday morning, so that we have access to the Whitelee Visitor Centre facilities.
Participant numbers will be limited and anyone wishing to attend must book in advance before coming and provide thier contact information for NHS Scotland Test & Protect. Bookings are open from the Monday morning of each week up until the close of business on Thursday.
Participants should park in the main Whitelee Visitor Centre carpark and remain with their vehicles and the Countryside Rangers will come round and check you in.
Please make sure and bring a face covering with you for the start of the walk - which can be removed if you wish, once out into site on the walk. We also recommend bringing anti-bacterial gel and/or wipes with you.
Please do not book or attend if feeling unwell and contact the Countryside Rangers to let them know, if you are booked. We advise that participants take a free lateral flow test before and after attending.
The group normally sets off around 10.15am, allowing everyone time to arrive and get their babies in their strollers. Remain at your vehicles however and the Countryside Rangers will call everyone when the walk is beginning.
At the start of the walk participants will be asked to form up and to keep the advised 2 meter social distancing. Once on the walk family/extended family bubbles can walk together but other participants should maintain the 2m distance.
On average the group are back at the visitor centre between 11.30am - noon, with the walk taking approximately 1.5 hours.
From the visitor centre one of the Countryside Rangers will take the group a walk, acting as guide for the group as well as providing first-aid cover and assistance when needed.
The group heads along the windfarm tracks for approximately 2 miles to turbine 56 before returning to the Whitelee Visitor Centre, where you can stop for a coffee and well earned rest.
Depending on the weather, the Ranger may make a number of checks to make sure everyone is happy to continue walking.
New members are always welcome but please remember to book before coming. Further details and key information will be provided on booking.
From December to February, when the visitor centre is closed, the Strollers go 'on location' visiting the partners of the Whitelee Countryside Ranger Service in Rouken Glen, Calderglen and Dean Castle.
Before the closure of the visitor centre for the winter, a tour programme is produced showing the routes and where and when the group will be at each park over the winter.
