Weekly, Wednesdays at 9 a.m.
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. The usual starting point is Whittingehame Drive, Haddington at 9 a.m. sharp. Full details of each walk are circulated to all members a few days beforehand.
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. It does not matter if we have done it before. In fact, most of the walks we do are recycled over time. If most of our members came up with a walk we would each only need to lead about one per year!
With the removal of many of the restrictions on outdoor activities we are now operating almost as usual. It is still required to maintain social distancing and good hygiene practices in relation to covid-19. The main difference from our usual programme is that, following the current advice, we are not car sharing on the way to the start. Walkers will go direct to the start in their own cars.
Informal enquiries about joining the walks are welcome and should be directed to the leader (details above).
