    Route Description for Greenhaugh and Thorneyburn Walk

    If you are after a quick jaunt through the countryside that features lovely wildlife views and is suitable for the entire family, then the Greenhaugh and Thorneyburn Walk is the perfect route for you. Keep your eyes peeled, as you just might be able to spot heron, red squirrels, and grey wagtails along the trail.
