Roslin Glen wilderness walk
As with the original walk, I will be keeping to the Roslin side of the glen, heading to Maiden Castle, but this time will be coming back along a "new" path, which skirts around the edge of Roslin Glen. To get to Roslin from the city, catch the 37 bus heading to Penicuik, and get off when the driver tells all the tourists it is time for Rosslyn Chapel. Please do not get the 15 because it no longer goes to Roslin. We will meet outside of Rosslyn Chapel and walk from there around the graveyard and into the glen. This is a relatively short walk, something like 4 miles, but it is quite rugged and three-dimensional (something like 338 ft up, 323 ft down). We will be walking in a circle, finishing up in the same village we start at. If people fancy it, we could grab a bite to eat for lunch in The Original Rosslyn Inn. Provided it isn't raining then we can eat outside, for people who bring their own packed lunches.

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 (

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 (

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! :-)

We also have a sister group: Outdoorsy LGBT (
