    After roughly 5-10 minutes, you’ll have reached the Almondell & Calderwood Country Park Visitor Centre. From here, you can take a break at the outdoor play centre, refresh with a drink or snack from the Café or even make use of the BBQ pits if you have booked in advance. The visitor centre is also the starting point for a number of other walks available on the website.

    If you're not stopping, continue forwards on the same road until you reach the cottages at the end - this section will take roughly 10 minutes with a gentle incline.
