What we’re about

Who are we?
We are a friendly, laid back walking group with members currently ranging from early 20s to late 60s. Our walks include evening strolls, leisurely rambles, corbetts/munros, away weekends and multi-day hikes. Our walks often end in a café or pub.

Our social calendar is equally as busy, with pub quizzes, film nights, bake offs and anything else we might like to try!

Tayside Young Walkers are part of Ramblers Scotland; a charity who promote walking throughout Scotland. People who wish to walk regularly with us must join as a Ramblers member. Membership costs £41 a year and there are lots of great benefits, including access to hundreds of free walks in the UK, priority on munros, access to our away weekends, as well as discount at Cotswold Outdoors.

New group members can come along to a total of 3 walks or socials before deciding if they want to join the Ramblers. You will be asked if you are a Ramblers member when you join our group, and when you sign up for walks.
You can join online by visiting the Ramblers Scotland page:

All members must take responsibility for their own safety while on the walks. Our event organisers are experienced, confident walkers and will aim to prevent any/all accidents where possible, but personal responsibility is key.

All walkers should have a good pair of walking boots, waterproofs, rucksack and warm layers as a minimum unless otherwise stated by the walk organiser. You should also bring sufficient food and drink. The weather in Scotland is highly unpredictable and you should come prepared for all weather conditions even if it is sunny at the start of the day! If you attend in jeans, trainers, sandals or other inappropriate clothing, you will most likely not be allowed on the walk, especially if it is a potential risk to the group.

Choosing your walks
Please read the walk description thoroughly, including following any links to additional information. Ensure you understand what the walk entails and that you have the appropriate level of experience and fitness to participate. If you are unsure or have questions, please contact the walk leader for the event.

Munro Policy
To attend a munro walk you must be a Ramblers member who has participated in a few of our low-mid level walks previously. Occasionally, exceptions may be made e.g. for a Ramblers member from another group who the walk leader know to be capable. Ultimately, the walk leader will have final say on who can attend.

Please arrive at least 10 minutes before the advertised start time. Do not expect the group to wait for you. If you are running late, make every effort to contact the walk leader at the earliest opportunity.

No-shows/wait list
No-shows and last minute cancellations result in other group members missing out on walks. No-shows and late cancellations will result in you being deprioritised for future events, and removed from the group if you continue to cancel last minute or fail to attend.

If a person has been inactive in the MeetUp group for 6 months, then we will remove them from the group.

Code of Conduct
We will not accept:
-Aggressive or abusive behaviour
-Offensive comments/jokes
-Bullying or harassment
-Unsolicited advances/contact (including in-person, text, calls, Whatsapp, email)

Photographs which are published on Meetup may be used on Social Media sites and for marketing, so if you are uncomfortable with this, please ensure you let the event organiser know.

Keep a close eye on the group and make sure you have notifications from Meetup enabled. We hope to see you on a walk very soon!
