Winton Estate surrounds large sections of the villages at Pencaitland and New Winton and it is only natural that there should be demand for access over Estate land.
A network of paths has been created to meet this demand with routes to suit all ages and levels of fitness. Developing the Winton Walks took more than two years to complete and extends to over 12 miles, with some further a-field beyond the Winton boundary.
The walks display much of the wonder we find in nature. They also have some intriguing points of interest, including ‘walkers’ roosts’ to shelter in, ‘pixie perch’ toadstools and two tall carvings of African women. The Winton Walks Route Guide can be downloaded here.
Your feedback on the walks and points of interest along the routes would be valuable in collecting wildlife data and to ensure the routes continue to be well maintained. Comments can be fed back using the enquiry form (please mark it for the attention of Francis Ogilvy).
