Our Edinburgh Hillwalking Group is very popular. We're incredibly lucky to have an experienced and dedicated team of volunteers to lead our hillwalks. They love hillwalking and it shows! Thanks to our Dream Team: Robin, Ian F, Bill, Jim and Ian M.
Walk Leader: Ian M
The walk will take around 4.5 hours. It's a moderate walk.
What will I need?
- good walking boots
- walking socks are great if you have them
- a base layer and mid-layer/fleece
- waterproof jacket
- ideally water resistant/waterproof walking trousers, though other light weight, quick-drying trousers are fine too
- hat/gloves/scarf - it can get very cold, even in Summer
- suncream and sunglasses - well you never know!
- rucksack (for packed lunch and layers)
- clean shoes and a carrier bag (for pre- and post-walk)
- packed lunch
We organise car-share from Edinburgh city centre. It's an informal arrangement that has worked brilliantly. Everyone meets at The Dome and gets into a car - quite simple! We can't guarantee a lift as it depends on sufficient drivers. So far it's worked every time.
If you are not driving, please give a petrol contribution to your driver, even if you know them. We do rely on people driving and don't want them to be out-of-pocket. If in doubt, err on the side of genorosity. It would be very difficult logistically, very time-consuming and expensive to make the same journeys by public transport.
Remember to bring clean shoes and a carrier bag (for muddy boots) for the journeys to and from the walk.
