Valleyfield Woodland Park offers some nice short strolls for all the family.
This short route is ideal for a summer walk and is one of many routes through the woods.
This walking route begins in small car park in between Newmills and Low Valleyfield. The village can be reached by the local bus service.
The trail heads through the woodland and underneath a flyover. In the early summer months the woodland floor is covered with bluebells and other wild flowers. The woodland is well kept and the path is stable and suitable for most walkers.
The trail snakes it ’s way through the wood following the Bluther Burn and thee is plenty to see along the way. Eventually the trail winds it’s way past the old ruin of Valleyfield House, a once magnificent mansion The surrounding land once formed a large estate and is the subject of a community campaign.
The Valleyfield Heritage Project is campaigning to restore some ares of the estate and offers guided tours. You can find out more by visiting their Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/Valleyfield-Woods-and-BURN-190600840981198/
Leaving the ruins the route then lops around and returns to the beginning of the route via the trail you walked in upon.
