A couple of notes for dog walkers .... there are only two important things to mention:
- First is PLEASE pick your dog's mess for several reasons - not least is it can cause blindness in children, and
- Second, PLEASE keep your dog under control: that is under control in other people's view, this includes:
- mother's of small children, and
- owners of small and or timid dogs.
This page is based on the work of Bob Gray who walked the park and made an amazing list of the trees that he saw at each spot, marking the spots on a map.
The first [left] tab shows the List of Trees [67 species] and the Points where they are to be found. The map on the middle tab shows the location of the points. The last [right] tab shows the points in order along the route that Bob followed.
- How the valley in Linn Park was formed, where it rises, where it goes, why it floods, the new flood prevention works,
- The health of the river and how it is measured - bugs [viz invertebrates coming soon . . . ]
- What lives in and on the river is described elsewhere on the web site
In the text, there are many questions: IF you know the answers, please let us know - email email@example.com.
We were given this lovely booklet, which dates from the 1960's, by Stuart Nisbet. It needs a bit of updating for the following reasons.
- The Trail Posts were taken over by STAG, and renumbered.
- The Mansion House is no longer home to the Park Rangers and their Information Centre
- Much of the park has now been effectively blocked off by fencing or undergrowth - especially on the river banks.
A loop walk from the White Bridge to the Netherton Braes, where at the top of the hill there is a Communications tower beside the old World War 2 Ack Ack battery.
This walk is somewhat longer than most of the ones for which a route map has been made. It is best in the Summer when it is hot as a lot of it is under the trees.
