What we're about

We're a new, friendly group that organises outdoorsy activities for people of all ages and abilities, although individual events won't necessarily be suitable for all abilities. We'll organise anything that's outdoorsy: walks - from a stroll around a park to climbing a Munro - wild camping, mountain-biking, road-cycling, climbing, kayaking, sailing, wild swimming, and so on.

And given that it can be nice to be with fellow outdoorsies even when not doing something outdoorsy, we also organise non-outdoorsy events: cinema trips, visits to museums and galleries, attending talks and performances, meals/drinks-out, and so on.

Any member can organise an event - see Become an organiser (http://www.meetup.com/outdoorsy/pages/Become_an_organiser/).

There's no obligation to attend our events regularly - you'll be welcome at any of our events whether you come to every one or one a year.

We love meeting new members, and we understand that attending your first event can be at least a little daunting, so we've prepared this: First-time nerves (http://www.meetup.com/outdoorsy/pages/First-time_nerves/).

If you know of others who may be interested in joining our group, please tell them about it, including via social media - the more members, the more events, the more fun.

We look forward to meeting you at one of our events! :-)

British Heart Foundation Glasgow Edinburgh Trek

Glasgow Science Centre

This is an annual event and involves walking between Glasgow and Edinburgh in support of BHF. It's 100km, with an option to walk approximately half of the distance to the Falkirk Wheel. To set the scene, it might be sensible to pencil in 24 hours to Edinburgh, and about half that to Falkirk. Faster and slower is also possible! I'm posting it here because I might organize a few "training" jaunts prior so that people can build themselves up (if needed!). That might enable people to pair up with walkers of similar ability. The details are here: https://www.bhf.org.uk/how-you-can-help/events/walks-and-treks/glasgow-to-edinburgh-trek.
