Wild Ways Well (Cumbernauld Living Landscape)

Cumbernauld Living Landscape’s Wild Ways Well project uses an internationally recognised wellbeing framework called the Five Ways to Wellbeing and shows that spending time outdoors, amongst nature, helps people to feel better about themselves and their lives.


Wild Ways Well aims to get people suffering from, or at risk of, poor mental wellbeing out into the greenspaces of Cumbernauld. Whilst out amongst the trees, parks and reserves participants get a chance to slow down, relax, enjoy being in the company of other like-minded people, and participate in a variety of environmental and conservation related activities. All sessions involve a walk in the outdoors, a hot drink made over a small fire and an outdoor activity – which might range from wildlife identification to environmental art, photography, forest skills, mammal tracking, and much more.


No experience in the outdoors is required, all sessions are led by experienced guides and are free of charge with hot drinks provided.  Participants who attend 12 sessions can earn a John Muir Discover award.


Open groups run weekly on a drop in basis. Closed groups for groups of people from the same or similar backgrounds can be delivered by arrangement.

Open Group every Thursday afternoon and one Saturday per month.

Closed Groups by arrangement.

All Sessions free of charge.
