Families can enjoy the great outdoors by exploring a woodland trail at an East Renfrewshire beauty spot.

Designed by the Woodland Trust, the free trail will be in place at Greenbank Garden, in Clarkston, until the end of May, giving children the chance to embrace nature.

Once they have completed the trail, which can be explored between 10am and 4pm, they can head to the Courtyard Café to claim a sticker.

A spokesperson said: “Our trail runs around the perimeter of the walled garden and takes about 25 minutes – longer if you are with a curious toddler and shorter if you are keeping up with your dog.

“Along the way, there are also plenty of opportunities for play, carved wooden artworks and a little stream and bridge.

“You might also see the neighbouring farmer’s cows, who occasionally pop their heads in.

“The trail is mostly flat and has just been refurbished. Don’t forget to bring along a pen or a pencil for your sheet.”

Admission to the woodland is free.

Those who would like to explore the walled garden must pay usual National Trust for Scotland admission prices, which are £8.50 (standard) and £6 (concessions).
