Britain’s best dog walks are named

A WALK in Glennifer Braes in Paisley has been crowned the best dog walk in Britain following a national search that was launched by Tim Vincent last year.

Nominations for over 600 walks as varied as the highlands of Scotland to the inner city canals of Liverpool have flooded in from dog lovers across Britain to the Winalot Roasts Walkies Campaign, proving that one of Britain’s favourite past-times is dog walking!

Glennifer Braes beat all the other walks because it contains all of the key elements that make a fantastic dog walk. It has plenty of variety such as woodland undergrowths and open grassland, which help a dog to develop and use its instincts. The flat and uphill terrain on the walk ensures the walk is sufficiently strenuous to be beneficial to health and there is also a multitude of local historical sites as well as spectacular views across Paisley and Glasgow from the top of the hills. The walk even contains a fantastic waterfall!

Winalot Roasts launched the campaign to find Britain’s best dog walk with Tim Vincent and his own dog Ruby in September. Tim Vincent said, “Choosing one walk over all the entries we received was such a difficult decision. I particularly liked Glennifer Braes because it contains all the things that I know dogs enjoy whilst still being interesting for the dog walkers.”

Andrew Ewington from Paisley who nominated the walk and has won a weekend break to a dog-friendly hotel, a winner’s trophy and a year’s supply of Winalot Roasts, said, “I can’t believe my local walk in Paisley has been named the best dog walk in Britain! I hope that lots of people and their pets will be able to enjoy the walk just as much as my dog, Branble, and I do.”
