Walking Group – Week 15: Lenzie Moss

Walking Group – Week 15 Lenzie Moss

One of the many great things about living in Glasgow is that there are so many fantastic places to go for walks, both in the city and within a short travelling distance. One of these places is Lenzie Moss.

Our walking group took the bus from Buchanan Street bus station and in a short time reached Lenzie and one of several entrances to the Moss where they were met by one of the ‘Friends of Lenzie Moss’. This was really useful as although the path is clear and easy to follow, having someone who can provide historical knowledge and indicate points of interest is always a great enhancement to a walk, so many thanks to Paul for giving his time and such interesting information.

The Moss is a raised bog and Local Nature Reserve with three main areas: the bog area, the grassland and the woodlands. The circular walk follows good paths through all these areas and gives a great variety of things to see along the way.

For information about the Moss visit http://www.friendsoflenziemoss.org.uk/ There is an entrance to the Moss just next to Lenzie train station and there is also a regular bus service from Buchanan Street bus station.
