The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the country. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks..

Lovely scenery, close to town and all it has to offer. Lovely welcome when arrived. The site is spacious and well looked after and the owners very friendly. Toilet facilities kept very clean, but could do with some updating, lack of water pressure in the showers. Overall, would strongly recommend.

Next to a fairly busy road so quite noisy, no views and wouldn't want to sit outside campervan in evening. But clean facilities and if you're wanting to explore Lochgilphead it is perfectly situated. Nice people looking after the place, and nice walk along Crinnian canal.
