This is a group for anyone interested in hillwalking. We aim to be an extended group of people with common hillwalking interests, as it is sometimes hard to find convenient times to go hillwalking with your hillwalking friends (or hard to coerce friends to drag themselves up a hill for you). We don't plan large, organized walks - rather, if anyone wants to go hillwalking, they can schedule a meetup (contact an organizer to become an event organizer), and whoever is interested can RSVP.
As walks are not "led" walks, group members need to (and by going on walks, assert that they do) take responsibility for their own safety and should be comfortable with arranging and participating in hillwalks themselves - for example, choosing suitable equipment, choosing routes and navigating in good or adverse weather conditions.
Please note that no-shows will be removed from the group. Please update your RSVP if you decide not to attend.
A midweek offering of circuit walk starting and ending at Swanston golf course.
We'll head along the golf course path to our first ascent of the day - Capelaw Hill. From here we'll go on to Harbour Hill then head across the moorland towards Flotterstone. The return route will go round Castlelaw Hill then take in Allermuir Hill. We then have the option of either heading straight back down to our starting point or if time and inclination allows we could also take in Caerketton Hill.
Please note I have an appointment early afternoon Tuesday and need to complete this walk by 12. I will therefore be setting of at 8am sharp, and may shorten walk if required.
I'll be at Aldi, Oxgangs Road North at 7.50am if anyone would like a lift up to start point
