Jim Dunlop Memorial Community Walking Festival 23-28 August 2021

East Ayrshire Council's Lifestyle Development and Community Wellbeing Team are once again hosting a Community Walking Festival in honour of the late Jim Dunlop who devoted many hours of his time volunteering as a Walk Leader with the team.

Jim was a great believer in getting as many people as possible involved in physical activity and exercise regardless of their age or ability.

The Walking Festival will see a range of walks take place over the week aimed at all ages and abilities and they are delighted to welcome everyone along to join them for some fresh air and good company.

The Festival kicks off on Monday 23 August with  the "Two Castles" (Dean and Craufurdland) Walk in Kilmarnock. 

On the Tuesday it's the turn of  Dumfries House near Cumnock with a led walk exploring its extensive grounds

Wednesday 24 will be the Water Meetings walk at Kilmaurs, while on Thursday the team visits  Dunlop for a walk around the village.

The finale of the Walking Festival will take place on the Saturday with a walk from Galston to Loudon Hill.   

Why not go along and join in? dogs and children  are very welcome!
