What do we do?
Although we are mainly a walking group, we organise many other activities such as meals, films, and bowling. We often organise short trips away using low cost travel and arrange walks or tours as part of our visits.

Suggestions for new activities or destinations are always welcome!

Most walks are between 6 and 8 miles and normally begin at 11am. All routes are designed with the intent of members being offered the opportunity of spending some social time in a local pub at the end of each walk. Tea and coffee are served by most venues.

You do not have to be super fit to join us! We try to offer something for everyone.

Dogs are welcome but please use short leads when required.

If you know of any dog friendly pubs, please let us know. In the summer we can use beer gardens.

If you are visiting Edinburgh on business or holiday, get in touch with us! There is no need to join as you will be our guest for the duration of your stay and we can help you get around the city.

Group funds
To build group funds, we will collect £5 per person per calander  year, however, you do not have to pay straight away - you can come and meet us first!

All  money is invested back into the group and we discuss funds at the End of Year Meet up and can do so at any other suitable time.

Membership approval
You may be wondering why you have to be approved to join the group...

This is an organiser tool that helps us to ensure our group remains small and informal with only active members being listed. There is no limit on the number of members that can join and we have a team of organisers ready to support numerous activities and events throughout the year.

Please be aware that if you do not attend any events or pay required fees then your membership will no longer be valid. This does not apply to members living abroad or due to other circumstances. Just let us know!

We look forward to meeting you!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
