“The group comprises absolute beginners (not necessarily youngsters), a number of more experienced walkers and international trekkers”

We are a group of individuals who take pleasure in walking coastal, woodland and hill routes in Wester Ross in the Scottish Highlands. The group includes absolute beginners (not necessarily youngsters), some more experienced hill walkers and even some international trekkers, Munro baggers. We welcome people of all ages and experience. We enjoy both the scenery and the opportunity to socialise with others while exploring our beautiful part of the world. We try to ensure that everyone is able to participate in at least one of the two scheduled walks each month. We try to ‘grade’ each route according to the  level of experience required by walkers, steepness of terrain and any area that presents specific challenges.

We meet on 2nd and 17th of each month except when inclement weather puts the kibosh on our plans. Fixed dates enable those of us with other regular activities and commitments to be able to attend some walks throughout the year.

We aim to have one relatively easy walk for those newer to walking or who are able to undertake only a fairly easy walk of shorter distance and simple terrain. More experienced walkers act as pathfinders on these and offer invaluable support and encouragement to those newer to the hills and coastal walks. They happily share their knowledge of walks, wildlife, history, geography and local industry.

For experienced walkers who prefer more of a challenge and are able to tackle a more difficult terrain or longer, steeper walks, glen traverses or corrie explorations or reaching the summit of Munros, we have more challenging monthly outings. Many of our walkers also undertake other walks throughout the month and enjoy each other’s company on these ad hoc outings.

We met  on 5th November 2014 to review how the group was progressing. This meeting attracted a good turnout and ideas for new walks were discussed, the concept of a ‘pathfinder’ for each walk was developed and agreed.  We also agreed that in order to improve communications and open up the group to new members we would attempt to set up this website and write an occasional article in ‘An Carranach’.

We welcome anyone who wishes to join us. To do so just contact any member of the group; contact Alan who maintains the contact list (click on Join Us on the menu bar above) or just come along to one of our walks.
