Guided Walks - About the walks

In this section: Guided walks programme | About the walks | Walk details

Day Walks are usually on Saturdays or Sundays at 10am, duration about 5 hours and covering a distance of up to 12 km. Sometimes we follow a linear route, and arrange cars to return to the start point. Cost £14 per person or £5 for under 18s.

Short Walks are shorter! Duration usually 2-3 hours. Cost £10 per person or £3 for under 18s.

What's involved We walk at a moderate pace with frequent stops. All walks are suitable for anyone who is reasonably fit and used to walking; however often we leave the beaten track and the surface may be rough or slippery. Walking boots are recommended. Please get in touch if you would like to find out about the suitability of a particular walk. The walks are graded to give you a guide as to what's involved (note that the grades are not related to the length of the walk, which is given in the Walk Details).

What to bring footwear with a good tread, warm & waterproof clothing and a drink. You also need a packed lunch for Day Walks.

Easy: short walk on good paths or sandy beaches; there may be steps and some climbing.

Moderate: not always on paths, may be rough or slippery underfoot at times.

Adventurous: walking along rocky beaches, clambering over rocks, steep climbs.

Walk details are available in advance on this website (click here), and are sent (by post or email) to everyone who has booked. These details include information about the meeting point, public transport options, the terrain and what we'll see. Many of the walks are accessible by public transport, and car sharing is encouraged.
