There is a network of paths suitable for walking in and around Thornhill. Look out for signposted paths around the North and South Commons, and to the south of the village along the Hedges Path and towards Norrieston.
A signposted walk to the Muir Dam north of Thornhill follows the Cessintully Burn up through Nelly’s Glen and over the Boquhapple Ridge. The walk is approximately 3km long (6km there and back). The path is rough, good footwear is essential, but the views are stunning.
Please Note: a number of the stiles on this path are in need of repair. Work to repair them is currently underway by volunteers from the Thornhill Paths Group.
