Glasgow HF Outdoor Club (established in 1917) offers a programme of walks throughout the year. Members enjoy the countryside and visit new places in friendly company with an experienced leader.
We have three broad grades of walk:
Easier – typically on level routes or sometimes with slight ascents taken at an easy pace.
Moderate – sometimes on paths or tracks, but with open country and some steep ascents at a steady pace.
Strenuous – ascents of one or more Munros at a brisk pace.
These walk descriptions are explained more fully in the PAGES section (Walk Grades).
The published programme shows the distance and height of each walk, so members can confidently choose one that suits their level of fitness.
The club welcomes anyone aged 18 and over – whether new to walking or with substantial experience (the latter may note that the club is affiliated to the Mountaineering Council of Scotland, which is included in your membership fee.
The club organises walks every weekend (including some weekends away) as well as some weekday walks.
This website shows our programme, where to meet and what to bring. If you have any questions, please email a member of the organising committee.
