Locals looking to get into the festive spirit should head to Lochwinnoch on Wednesday 10th December for the annual Tinsel Walk.

The event, organised by Renfrewshire Council, follows a route around the outskirts of the town.

Senga MacLeod, Walking Development Officer for Renfrewshire Council, explains: “The walk is on a level to suit everyone, although there are a few small inclines to negotiate.

“Everyone is encouraged to walk at their own pace and enjoy a bit of Christmas chat and song. If you think it’d be for you, please come along – and wear something festive!”

Walkers will meet at Castle Semple Visitor Centre, Lochwinnoch, for an 11am start.

Anyone can turn up and join in but for more information beforehand, call 0141 889 1110.
