CAVLP unveils free app promoting local walking routes

The new Clyde Walkway app is available to download from the app store and google play store

Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership has launched a free app promoting the 65km stretch of the Clyde Walkway from Glasgow to the Falls of Clyde.

Available to download from the app store and the google play store, the Clyde Walkway app invites users to make their own way along the fascinating route, depending on their interests and time available for traversing the route. Working on GPS, app users can chart their progress on the route as they go, even through rural areas with limited mobile signal.

The route passes many points of natural, cultural and industrial heritage interest which the app provides information on, allowing users to untangle the fascinating and rich story of the River Clyde. 

The app was created by Red Paint Media on behalf of Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership and in partnership with Glasgow City Council, North Lanarkshire Council and South Lanarkshire Council.

Donna Marshall, Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership programme manager, is delighted that the app is now available to download.

She said: “We are thrilled to launch this fantastic and free resource for locals and visitors alike. The Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership exists to celebrate the unique landscape and cultural heritage of the Clyde and Avon Valley, and the app does just that.

“We hope to see a rise in visitors using the Walkway throughout the year, enjoying the carpets of bluebells and orchards in bloom in spring, the lush green summers, the magical patchwork of golden autumnal colours and sharp, crisp winter days.”

You can download the app by searching for ‘Clyde Walkway’ in the app store or google play store.
