Organised walk information

The walks, normally up to 6 miles duration, offer great variety and may be local or take us into Kirkcudbrightshire, Cumbria (Eden Valley, Lake District etc.) or throughout the length and breadth of Dumfriesshire.


We use Annandale Transport Initiative's minibus and car share. In addition we have an Away-Day each year, which takes us further afield and incorporates a post-walk meal to round off a good day out. Similarly a biennial Weekend-Away has now established itself with Whitby, Oban, Hawes and Whitby again being the walk base for the 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014 trips.
