The path is extremely easy to follow, there are regular markers and it really is just a straight line. You walk through Carlisle golf course, please adhere to all the rules (there are clear signs). Although the club has been closed for some time so it has been very quiet on our recent walks!
If you were to start from the Wetheral side there is roadside parking under the trees on Plain Road and again you will see a public footpath sign for Scotby and a gate.
This really is a lovely, easy and safe walk that my children always love! There are so many ways to walk this walk, or to extend your route. Who knows we may even be able to enjoy a picnic on the village green very soon!
