General Information for Guided Walks
All our Guided Walks are carefully graded to ensure that you know what level of difficulty you may encounter.
Participants must satisfy them selves that the walk is suitable for their abilities.
If you are not used to hill walking, then we recommend that you try and start on a Moderate Walk, so you can gauge your level of fitness and ability against our grading system, which is necessarily somewhat subjective.
You can get advice from the walk leader by ringing him/her on the telephone number given in the programme.
No liability will be accepted for loss or injury that occurs as a result of taking part.
A responsible adult must accompany young people (under18).
More information is provided on our Guidance for Walks page.

We have some maps to show where our start points are. Click Here to go to Car Parks Page.
