Whitelee Stroller Striders

About Whitelee Stroller Striders

The Whitelee Stroller Striders is our popular parent and baby walking group that was started by the Whitelee Countryside Ranger Service in 2011 and has seen over 500 parents and little ones enjoying the fresh air and access opportunities at the windfarm.

The group is a fun and enjoyable way to socialise with new parents and always welcomes new members. You don't need to pre-book, just meet the other walkers at the start for 10am any Tuesday between March and November and join in the walk.

Walk Length and Duration
From the visitor centre the group heads along the windfarm tracks for approximately 2 miles before returning to the Whitelee Visitor Centre where the walkers stop for a coffee and well earned rest, making the full route ~4miles in total.

The route goes east around the back of Brown Hill (mountain bike trails) before stopping at the junction just past turbine 54 where the ranger checks everyone is happy to continue on - in bad weather the group may opt to return to the visitor centre rather than continue.

Assuming everyone is happy to go on, the next stop is either turbine 56 or the Blackwood Hill viewpoint, depending on the weather - this is the halfway point where everyone gets a chance for a quick breather and a check of the hopefully snoozing babies, before turning round to head back to the visitor centre. On the return leg the group head around the western end of Brown Hill and back to the visitor centre for a well earned rest...and maybe a cuppa and cake!

On average the group are back at the visitor centre between 11.30am and 12 noon, with the walk taking approximately 1.5 hours.

Who can Come
The group welcomes new parents as well as well behaved dogs, grandparents/family members and friends and regularly gets 6, 8 even 20 walkers taking part and is an interesting sight to spot whizzing around the windfarm tracks.

Winter
Through the winter months of 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, Dean Castle and Calderglen, however the dedicated 'Strollers' always stay at Whitelee right up until the end of November. 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.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Whitelee Stroller Striders are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
