What we're about

We are a group of Edinburgh Ramblers (http://www.lothian-borders-ramblers.org.uk/groups/edin.shtml) who have recently set up fortnightly led Family Walks.

Taking in total 2 to 3 hours time usually around 4 miles they are in lovely places either in or within easy reach of the City. Join this group to discover great places to ramble with your family. Relaxed and friendly led by experienced walkers. Meet other parents and grandparents let children lark about and be children. Time to stop and smell the flowers, spot the birds, look at the water fall, clamber about and be outdoors in fresh air, notice the seasons, the changing light the natural world that sustains us.

You do not need to join Ramblers to enjoy a few walks with us. If you continue to walk with us, you should join Ramblers; as a member of Ramblers, you will enjoy a number of benefits including the opportunity to walk with any Ramblers group.

If you need any further assistance please emails us at familywalks@edinburghramblers.org.uk.
