Investment project code: 19

We aim to Waymark the Magnificent 11 route through the use of roundel marked posts, street signage and create a publicity leaflet describing each section of the route. Magnificent 11 is a circular walk route, away from traffic, that takes in the finest greenspaces of the south side. This route, away from traffic, allows us to enjoy walking by streams, through wide open spaces and woodland paths. To see on our doorstep the throng of wildlife from sparrows to jacksnipe, oak to pine trees, snowdrops to bluebells. Highest point in the walk, Cathkin Braes, gives a panoramic view of Glasgow The City in a Woodland, a breathtaking sight. Each of the 4 sections, approximately 2 - 2.5 miles, connects directly with public transport allowing the walk to be undertaken in part or in whole thus allowing the individual to make the choice. Parts 1 + 2 Linn Park > Kings Park > Ardencraig road, Commence in Linn Park (LNR), cross into Kings park, through Castlemilk Park onto Fernbrae Meadow (LNR) Parts 3 + 4 Ardencraig Road > Carmunock > Linn Park Cross Fernbrae Meadow (LNR), up to the summit of Cathkin Braes(LNR) through Big Wood, Windlaw Farm, passing Carmunock, Carnbooth and into Parklee Farm. Enter Netherton Braes following the White Cart river back to Linn Park. Please vote for this project that allows communities to connect with nature simply by walking.
