Health Walks

by The Braveheart Association

Physical Activity, Social Activity, Conditions

Join us on a walk in the heart of nature with Braveheart’s free health walks, designed to support adults, of all abilities, to become more physically and socially active within the community.

Our friendly and welcoming walks also promote social inclusion within the community, and encourage the use of green space within our local area.

Exposure to green space not only allows us to spot wildlife in action, capture breathtaking views, and enjoy fresh air but has also shown to have many restorative effects; recovery from illness, stress relief, reduces anger and anxiety and increases feelings of wellbeing; helping maintain overall health in the long run.

We offer Weekly and Monthly walks throughout Forth Valley for individuals of all abilities (please see Walking Timetable page). Our leaders have expert knowledge of the surrounding area and guide our walks throughout Forth Valley. They are full of ideas, and have great enthusiasm for walking outdoors.

Our Weekly walks last from 30 minutes to an hour long (slow and brisk pace), whereas our monthly walks are of longer duration (45 minutes -1.5 hrs long) and venture further afield. All walks finish with a tea and a chat in the café afterwards.

Our walks support individuals living with Dementia, long term conditions, RNIB (supporting blind and partially sighted people), Epilepsy or anyone who wishes to become more physically or socially active within their community.
