We are a friendly group mainly centred around the Central Belt conurbations but with many members also in outlying areas of Scotland. We arrange a varied programme of events - from gentle lowland walks to mountain walking days and the occasional cycle trip. There are local day events and weekend trips to the more remote areas of Scotland. Our weekend events are coordinated with the North of England Group (Transpennine) and the Adventure Out groups as many members will also go hill walking in The Lakes and North Pennines.
We welcome men and women, young or old, beginners or experienced.
We try and organise an event every month and in some months there will be a day walk and weekend event.
We are always open to suggestions for new walks and weekends away so if you have ideas or would like to take on a walk yourself please feel free to message the Group Coordinator using the the box at the foot of this page.
Forthcoming events in Scotland are listed below. If you need more information about any event, please feel free to message the organiser using the link at the foot of the event page.
