new Male Walker, 62, based near Kent

Message: Spurred on by doing more challenging walks ahead of doing the Three Peaks Challenge in September I want to continue to enjoy walks and climbs. I am active and fully fit enjoying a variety of activities. I enjoy varied walks from relaxed countryside walks to something a lot more challenging. Part of enjoying walks for me is good company. I am happy to enjoy a drink or meal afterwards and perhaps consider trips. Prefer mid-week although I could do weekend walks. I have indicated walking areas and counties but are not limited to those indicated. If my post interests you do get in touch

new Female Walker, 56, based near Skipton

Message: Hello. I'm Caroline, and really love walking. but for lots of reasons, i've not had the opportunities to make much progression. But having lost my male walking pal to a relationship, followed by my female walking pal to a relationship, i'm stuck. !! I have no sense of direction,and being female, wouldn't walk alone.I also hate driving,though do, locally, but can make great picnics, and am more than happy to cover petrol money! I love to learn all about someone else's life , or walk in our own worlds, but know there's company alongside. Life's short, and i need to get back into the great outdoors,to smell the rain on the earth, see lots of wildlife, beautiful skies , and with a walking partner, experience more of it! I have lots of female friends who are married, or single, but not into walking, so ideally, it would be nice to walk with a male companion, or i'd be happy to try walking in a small group, though i've not done this before. I have a lot of Saturday afternoons free, alternate Sundays, and alternate Mondays.

new Female Walker, 54, based near Aberdeen

Message: Hi, I'm looking to meet fellow walkers who don't mind a wee dog coming along and a walker who doesn't really know her Corbett's from Munro's, but likes a biscuit at the top!- that's both of us. However I do walk regularly, love nature, and don't mind being outside in most weathers. I enjoy art, scuba, reading, music and am pretty easy going. I would like to extend my walking, and to share some company in doing so would be great. I'm not keen on heights so sheer ridges and summits are not for me I'm afraid, but I'm fairly fit and up for a wide range of walks, otherwise. I hope to extend some skills like map reading, compass etc without losing the enjoyment of just a good day of walking! I work full time so weekends are best, and holidays are much more flexible in the distances I can travel.

Box: 101683

new Male Walker, 45, based near Leeds

Message: Although I don't mind short one day walks, I always prefer when possible to do a full weekend or longer multi day when ever get the chance. I've never used a B&B, preferring instead to use either Youth hostels or bunk barns, as I find them really friendly places & certainly much better value for money. If hostels are not available I'll just wild camp instead & always carry full eqp't when I'm away to allow me that option. I'm also quite happy to walk in all bad weather conditions too. Over the years I've always walked alone as I find this allows me to use my good map reading skills to plan my own routes & walk at my own pace. Although I'll always meet other people while walking it still tends to get a bit boring sometimes & I often wish I'd someone else to chat to. I tried group walking with a club once, & although it was very friendly I don't think it's quite what I'm looking for. I'd like to meet a Male/female walker of around the same age & ability, who's also into my style of walking & who's also got quite a reasonable amount of spare time on her hands. Due to carrying a 75-10 & all this eqpt on multi day walks I'm not looking for the kind of routes where you scramble up a steep mountain side like a squirrel on steroids! only to give myself cardiac arrest on reaching the summit - can't see any fun in that!!! As said quite happy to camp at anytime/conditions, but usually make sure there's a pub nearby - never spend any longer in a tent than you've got to as there's nothing more boring. All the best & hope to hear from you; Steven.

Box: 106351

new Male Walker, 55, based near Amersham

Message: I'm based in S Bucks but love the mountains and hills: Peaks, Dartmoor, Beacons, Shropshire hills, mid-Wales, N and S Downs. I can get to them all in no more than three hours, have a great day's walking, and home again - as long as I'm out of the car for more than I'm in it, that's OK. The Lakes, Snowdonia, and Scotland are the real draws though, especially in winter conditions. I've been up to the far NW and the W and Central Highlands for the last few years and love them. I last updated this (spring 2014) from Spean Bridge where I'd been battling the Highland weather. I like mountains and hills. I walk among them and try to ski (downhill and touring) them, and recently mountain bike through them to save my legs when getting to the more remote ones. I try to imagine the peaks and valleys under a kilometre of ice shaping the Lakes or Highlands into the dramatic wild places they can be today. I also like working right in middle of London where it couldn't be more different. And living at the end of a Tube line with a usually muddy field-and-woods walk to my local station. If you'd like to meet for a walk - or just to meet - in these or any other (not too flat) regions, I'd love to hear from you.

new Female Walker, 52, based near Solihull

Message: Hi, I'm Liz, based in the West Midlands, which I love, despite having to travel to the nearest hills or mountains. I am a keen walker, but have to admit I am not too hot at map reading, as seem to always walk with other people. I have walked with Explore overseas and belong to a mountaineering group in the UK, but they only go out once a month. I have successfully downloaded a few maps from this site and followed them, together with an OS map, so not totally useless on the map reading thing! I'd love to find a male walker of similar age to walk with, who is fit enough to do a mountain and talk at the same time. I love interesting conversation and to laugh! I am fit, outgoing, and good company Look forward to hearing from you.

new Female Walker, 56, based near Nantwich

Message: Hi, I love to walk but don't do enough, mainly because I no longer have a dog. I've climbed a few mountains in my time both at home and abroad and would dearly love to get back out there and share the joy with an interesting companion. I run a consultancy business and have lots of interests from cooking to publishing and am interested in just about everything as long as it's not a long moan about politics. If you happen to be a male who's good company, likes to have fun with an optimistic attitude and a reasonable sense of direction (mine isn't the best but I could knock up decent rations if we get stucků) and if our walks end up with a drink and bite to eat in the pub, I'm a happy bunny. I drive and can make time whether weekend or weekdays.

new Male Walker, 61, based near Bristol

Message: Hello, my name is Richard I have walked many hills and valleys over the years mainly in the Lake District and South West, also long weekend backpacking using B&Bs, campsites or wild camping usually on my own. Can navigate reasonably well but not into peak bagging or route marches and just as happy with short or long day walks to just chill and enjoy the countryside, history and wild life. However now find that it would be nice to have the company of a like minded person to enjoy the surroundings. Always interested in new areas, look forward to hearing from you.

Box: 103753

new Female Walker, 59, based near York

Message: Hello fellow walkers - I am looking for a female walking companion for leisurely walks in the countryside, no more than about 6 miles in length, both in my home county of Yorkshire and further afield, if possible. I am not looking for a challenge but simply to enjoy the beauty of the countryside and take in the fresh air, with stops to admire the views and appreciate nature. Also enjoy coastal walks, rivers and canals. Tea and cake at a quaint teashop or even a pub meal would round off the day nicely. Definitely not a sporty individual, although I do enjoy swimming, I have varied interests including reading, the arts particularly theatre and cinema, crafts especially knitting, history and architecture, railways and vintage cars, travel both in the UK and abroad, animals especially cats. I have numerous walking books for my own area and have reasonable map reading skills even though I find it a pain to constantly have to put on my glasses. As I am semi-retired, I can walk on some weekdays, as well as on the weekend.

Message: I'm retired and am keen to set up a regular walk with a friendly male who wants to explore areas around the North West. I enjoy walking in the Lakes and areas around Cheshire but am ready to strike out further afield. I have a miniature schnauzer who enjoys our walks so he would want to be included in any outings. Having just tackled Snowdon I'm keener on less vertical walks although length is not a problem.

new Female Walker, 60, based near North/East Yorkshire

Message: Looking for walking mates (m or f) to do moderate/strenuous/technical walks. I am passionate about the hills and wild places. I walk with a local mountaineering club and sometimes walk on my own to practice navigation - but I prefer to walk with mate/s. It would be good to meet up with other hillwalkers/mountain buddies for company on the hills as its always better to share trips/days out. I'm easy going, have a soh and enjoy a challenge. I visit the Pyrenees most years and am aiming to complete the GR10 long distance path in stages. It would be good to get to know others who might like to join me for any of these. I am reasonably fit and work as a health professional.

Currently working on Administrative County Tops (4 to do), Wainwrights (about 25 to do) and Munros (124 done). Also often fly to Mallorca, Madeira, Morocco for a walking break. Have no commitments or baggage, so can take off for the hills at little or no notice.

new Female Walker, 52, based near Yeovil

Message: Hi, I'm 52 yet young at heart and in body (well, I'd like to think so!) I live with a slightly mad spaniel called Alba (my current walking buddy) and the occasional child when they need to escape London for the countryside. Alba and I would very much like to find some new friends to walk with, locally as well as further afield. I particularly like exploring coastal paths, although woodland walks and moorland rambles are also favourites. I look forward to sharing the walks that I love in my beautiful home county of Somerset and being shown those favourites of my new walking friends. I think I should point out that I'm more of a rambler who welcomes the promise of a pub lunch or cream tea at the end of a spot of moderate exercise. . . hard core Trekkers might find me a disappointing partner therefore! Angie. PS: Alba would like a walking partner too, but she's equally happy with either a solo human or one with a canine friend :)

new Female Walker, 56, based near Stoke-on-Trent

Message: Is there anybody out there?! I'm in my mid 50's, but in my mind I seem to think I'm still in my 20's. Looking for a special person to enhance my happy life and hopefully I'll bring some sunshine into theirs. I walk alone or with various friends - I enjoy some conversation and banter not to mention a cake and coffee or tea. I prefer less challenging walks - I'm not in training for the SAS! - ideally 5 to 8 miles but can do more, especially on a long summer day. More of an ambler than a scrambler nowadays. I don't want to rush along - its all about the journey not so much the destination. Quite partial to a spontaneous walk after work on a nice evening - perhaps along the canal to a pub for a nice pub meal. I'm flexible enough to walk a day in the week sometimes or more often at weekends. I also like weekends away, holidays, classic car shows, eating out, mooching around interesting towns and villages and many other things. The areas I've put down are the ones I more regularly walk in but I love coastal walks and will give most places a try - can't say theres really anywhere I've been that I didn't like! I'm 5ft 7in and slimmish. Independent with a dry sense of humour. Call a spade a spade type of person. If you are tallish (over 5ft 10in), not too overweight, and a non smoker perhaps you'd like to come for a stroll with me.

new Male Walker, 31, based near Preston

Message: Hi, I'm Ant. I've been a semi-regular day hiker for a while now, but have recently started to go out on the hills more frequently. I mostly walk around my local area (Lancashire) or the Lake district, but occasionally venture off to the Yorkshire Dales. Not many of my friends hike, and those that do are often busy when I'm free and v. v. - I'm quite happy to walk solo, but would prefer not to do so all of the time ;), and yes I've tried rambling clubs, but find them a little inflexible. I haven't done much camping, but have really enjoyed what little I have done and would love to do more. I'd say my navigation skills are average, but there's definitely room for improvement. I'm ideally looking to meet someone around my local area, but anyone willing to travel to the Lakes or Dales is welcome also. I have a car, so the Peak District is also in reach. If you're only interested in day hikes that's fine, but (wild) camping is also something I'd like to do more of, so let me know if you do to. Age or gender isn't a factor, and am also happy to meet up with couples/hiking partners for 3-4 man walks. Hope to hear from ya!

new Female Walker, 42, based near Crewkerne

Message: Hi, my name is Anne, I'm a positive person; always seeing the glass half full and looking on the bright side of life, I'm bubbly, outgoing, intelligent and single. I like to think I've got a good sense of humor and this includes trying not to take life too seriously and laughing at myself. I recently relocated to Somerset due to my job from Solihull, but I'm originally from Birmingham and I'm loving it; especially the countryside! I very recently went for a 14 and a half mile walk with a friend; after telling them how much I loved walking. As a result this has made me really want to get back into it and motivated me to join this site. I used to go walking between 8 and 11 miles most weekends up to 2009 and I have been up Skiddaw and Helvellyn in 2009. Although I can go walking by myself, I do not think this is much fun, plus I am not very good at all at map reading. Hence I would really like to meet new people/walking partners and build some new friendships along the way. If you would be willing to assist me in increasing my ability in reading maps, this would be most welcomed too. Though I have picked certain national parks and counties, I would be willing to consider other areas. I have never been to Scotland and would love to visit sometime. I can drive and I'm available most weekends. If you like what you see and would like to know more, please get in touch and I'll look forward to hearing from you.

Message: Due to the loss of my long term walking partner I am looking for a like minded person or persons to walk with. I am available any day and have quite a lot of experience in Durham Northumberland and North Yorkshire. I am pretty good at navigating and have a list of walks most of which I have done some I have not. These are usually in the 7-10 mile range with different grades. I like to think I am easy going with a good sense of humour. Not averse to a pint at the end but not essential. I have my own transport. Look forward to hearing from you.

new Male Walker, 55, based near Carmarthen

Message: I enjoy the 'great outdoors', hill, country, and coast walks, along with the benefits of the exercise, fresh air, and peace and quiet! I am independent, no ties, friendly, non materialistic, with old fashioned values and morals, Spiritually minded, with a positive outlook. I am not one for TV/Celebrities/loud pubs or clubs! Besides walking, my interests are cycling, travel, motorcycles, reading, and music, and an interest in complimentary therapies. I am open to new ideas too. My wish is to meet an unattached lady, to share walks, get to know each other, and develop an initial friendship,hopefully more.

Box: 106778

new Male Walker, 49, based near Warrington

Message: Hi I'm Neil, I'm a 49 year old male, I have completed the Wainwrights for the 2nd time recently and love nothing more than been out in the Lake District in all weathers. I enjoy been in the hills, no matter where, England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, I'm planning on getting out to Ireland later this year to bag Slieve Donard and Carrauntoohil. I spend virtually every Saturday out walking and would welcome some company, male or female, individually or in a small group. I am an experienced map reader and tend to start at first light to be out before the crowds. I mix my routes between the Wainwrights, The Outlying Fells and The Howgills. I have my own company car and am more than willing to collect others on the way up to the Lakes. In early September I will be walking the Lyke Wake Walk for the second time this year, that's a 40 mile route to be completed in under 24 hours. If you want a challenge then let me know and we can work out the logistics.
