We plan to host regular weekend walks, some easier than others, all year round. From late spring into early autumn we shall also include weekday evening walks and maybe the odd cycle. We are keen to, occasionally, include some weekend meetups such as backpacking and camping trips. We shall also include social events and are open to suggestions for future meetups. Members are welcome to contact the organiser or co-organisers if they wish to host a meetup.

The organisers are keen to minimise impact upon the environment and suggest, where possible, members travel together to meet ups. Event organisers will give a rough idea about expected terrain, difficulty and duration of a walk. The event host will also give an indication as to any special equipment which may be required for each walk.
We suggest members check out the suggested basic kit list at the following link: https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/safety/kitlist.shtml
Well behaved dogs are welcome on walks. They should be kept under close control at all times. Please respect other group members, as not everyone likes dogs. Bear in mind on some walks livestock may be present. The event organiser may ask you to put your dog on a leash to minimise disturbance of livestock, nesting birds or planted fields.
