Gleniffer Braes walking trail: Bottom to top… and back down again

Tuesday 6th July, 2021

Gleniffer Braes Country Park is home to a number of great trails – but have you ever walked from the bottom to the top of the Braes?

We’ve showcased a number of shorter trails through our Komoot route planner, including the beautiful Glen Park circular walk and the Brownside Farm link path to Glen Park.

Now, this longer route – at close to three hours – provides the perfect guide to exploring the Gleniffer Braes in all their glory.

Starting at Brownside Farm car park, you’ll follow the track upwards to see hiking highlights including Glen Park Willow Arch, as well as spectacular views across Paisley and out towards the Kilpatrick Hills.

Plus, the Braes are home to a host of woodland and moorland wildlife, with birdwatchers in for a treat. It’s also common to see some lovely Highland cows and red deer grazing in the fields.

Once you’ve enjoyed the views at the top, you can make your way back down and see the stunning Craigielinn Waterfall – a favourite among locals and visitors.

Follow this great trail and find out everything you need to know using the Komoot route planner below.
