Helensburgh and Lomond locals can enjoy a peaceful walk through Cardross’ Geilston Garden that hopes to improve participants’ “mental and physical wellbeing”.

Mindfulness expert Wendy Alexander will visit the garden on Saturday, October 14 between 10.30am and 11.30am for a calming stroll throughout the grounds.

The ‘Mindfulness Meander’ will allow people to use sensory awareness practices and experience short, guided meditations.

A representative from Friends of Geilston said: “Our busy minds and pace of everyday life often means we forget the beauty around us.

“However, being aware and present in our surroundings, to feel a moment of calm and appreciate the beauty of the garden as summer fades and autumn beckons, can work wonders for our mental and physical wellbeing.

“During our time together, we will attune our senses to the simple delights of the natural world within the peaceful setting of the garden using various sensory awareness practices and short guided mindfulness meditations.”

The event is only suitable for adults with participants asked to wear clothing suitable for the weather.

Tickets cost £5 and are available by emailing geilstonfriends.events@gmail.com.

Entry to the garden must also be purchased and costs £8.50 for adults, with concessions priced at £6.50.
