Help connect Strathaven

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Strathaven’s Slow Ways.

Review of SlowWays Route Strlar one (Strathaven to Larkhall)....

wellchoughed

Walk this route

This route follows a busy main single-carriageway road that has no pavement for almost its entire length. It also has many bends where drivers may not have much time to react to walkers on the road. There are no direct alternatives; it would be better to walk via Crossford and Quarter or Larkhall....

Walk this route

This route is on pavement or single track roads the whole way. Quiet at the Darvel end with the single track roads towards Strathaven being busier. Lots of bike traffic on this route....
