This variety walk takes you out of the village on a circular route to enjoy the tracks and lanes around it and finishes with an enchanting riverside path through a wood alongside a river just beyond a quaint farm bridge over Girven Water, (photo on the right). This is a combination of two village trails advertised in a free leaflet available from the car park. The first walk you will follow will be the Village Ramble and this will be followed immediately by The Church Trail to make a longer route. In winter or if there has recently been heavy rain the paths could be muddy with numerous puddles.

The walk is suitable for children, teenagers, senior citizens and anyone in-between. Excellent for dogs, but hopeless for wheelchairs and buggies. Suitable footwear in summer will be anything flat soled but boots will be best in winter or after heavy rain. There should be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. The Buck's Tea Room is just before you reach the junction where the B741 turns left. Here you can enjoy a variety of refreshments, and there are public toilets at the back of McCandlish Hall which is just across the road from the tea room. There is a picnic table at the car park and at the start of Lambdoughty Glen with the waterfalls, but few bench seats on the route.
