The Beardmore Hotel and Conference Centre has unveiled its new walking route, continuing its dedication to promoting active, healthy and environmentally friendly lifestyles.
The walking route has been set up to encourage guests, delegates and conference organisers to take advantage of the fantastic scenery surrounding the Beardmore.
The Beardmore's walking route is approximately 1.75 kilometres in length, with benches positioned along the route to allow the opportunity to rest at regular intervals.
Running through the beautiful Beardmore Gardens and taking in views of the River Clyde, the route follows clearly marked paths and roads. Suitable for walking and jogging, they can also be easily accessed by wheelchairs, pushchairs and those with mobility problems.
Beardmore Hotel Manager, Gary Rice, commented: "We understand that in the fast paced world of events and conferences, it can sometimes feel impossible to find the time to go outside, get some fresh air and exercise. With our new walking route, we hope that more people than ever before will take advantage of the fantastic scenery on our doorstep to get some fresh air during their conference or unwind after a busy day.
"We have made fantastic progress with our commitment to providing sustainable, eco-friendly events and tourism in recent years, with the introduction of our Green Conference Package, electric car parking spaces and bicycles available to hire on site.
"This new walking route is the latest step we have taken in encouraging people to think about the environment when making their arrangements, whether for a conference, event or quiet get-away, and enjoy an active and healthy experience at the Beardmore."
The Beardmore Hotel and Conference Centre has been awarded the prestigious Gold Award for Green Tourism three years in a row, in addition to being named the Top Eco Hotel in Scotland at the 2013 AA Hospitality Awards. They have also recently been nominated for Best Hotel in the Goldstar Green Tourism Awards, taking place in November 2014.
