Weekly, Wednesdays at 9 a.m. approximately.


Programmes of weekly walks in the Lothians and Borders (and occasionally further afield) are created by contributions from members. Walks are usually between 8 and 10 miles, moderately demanding, sometimes including steep gradients, and with stops for coffee and lunch. Full details of each walk are circulated to all members a few days beforehand and members intending to go are asked to notify the leader. Walkers make their own way to the starting point and we encourage car sharing by using our established contact networks.

We hope that most members will take a turn at suggesting and leading a walk. This does not have to be anything complicated. We are quite happy to do something as straightforward as a ‘there and back again’ on a well known path, such as the John Muir Way, or the Southern Upland Way, or, indeed, any other walk with which you are familiar. We have a large bank of previous walks, including maps and gpx tracks, as a source of ideas and suggestions. Experienced members are always happy to assist with planning and checking the route.
