I love Scrambling & Edges - the more exposure the better. I'm happy to walk in all weathers - sunshine, snow, hail, wind & rain - bring it on. I'm not bothered about dogs one way or the other.

I am a Female Walker, in my early 60s, based near London hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I live in London, but have done lots of long distance path walking and a fair bit of mountain walking in Scotland, Arran, Cairngorms, Mull... I would love to explore more of the countryside, mostly the northern half of the country and Ireland, which I'm sorry to say I've never been to!

I work part-time as a bicycle instructor, helping people to be confident riding on the road. I'm fairly flexible about when I can go away, because I pick my own hours :-).

Don't be put off by the fact that I live in London! I can travel! And of course there are some lovely walks around London.

A bit more about me:

I quite enjoy Scrambling & Edges but don't like too much exposure. With regard to the weather, this is the UK so it's going to rain sooner or later isn't it? Fine with me, I've got waterproofs. I'm not bothered about dogs one way or the other. If pushed, I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are rather poor at best. I can drive. I do not have my own vehicle but can borrow or rent one.

I am also interested in:

  • Camping on Campsites - Camping where there is a shop, toilets, showers & possibly a pub;
  • Long Distance Path Walking - Multi-day walks like The Pennine Way, Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk;

I am a Male Walker, in my early 60s, based near Stoke On Trent hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I'm a recently retired 63 year old living in the Staffordshire Moorlands. I moved here when I retired as I enjoy walking in the Peak District so much but also enjoy walking in other areas. Location isn't too important as I am prepared to travel to meet for a walk.

I am fit and competent and enjoy a challenging walk or an easy walk and I like to take in the views whichever. I am open to any level of walk as it's sometimes good to just get out and it's always good to find a good pub or cafe at the end. As well as walking I also enjoy running and cycling although I can just enjoy being outdoors watching and listening. It's the simple things in life that appeal to me most.

As much as I enjoy the outdoors it is by no means everything to me. I enjoy listening to a lot of music having a very broad taste and especially like live music but not in big venues. I also enjoy cinema and theatre or just having a chat in a café or pub with friends.

It would be great to share the outdoors and other things with a like minded woman though I have a very inquisitive mind and I'd be more than happy to be introduced to new interests.

My boring details are I'm single with no children or any other ties. I'm 5'8" and slim/average build.

I am a Female Walker, in my late 50s, based near Burnley hoping to meet just Male new friends to go walking with.

My Message: A bit about me...
Well, I like to mix up my walks so vary the level, distance and area where I can. I'm not as fit as I used to be but get out as often as I can. I work full time and longer walks are usually saved for weekends but during summer months I'll walk most evenings. I've walked a few long distance routes in this country and explored lots of areas of mainland Spain, Portugal and Majorca. I don't mind walking on my own but do prefer company. I love nature and going out with my camera (a fairly new hobby and still trying to get my head around it).
I enjoy the simple things in life like catching up with friends, chatting over a drink in the pub, a dance or two and meals out. I enjoy all sorts of music, going to live events and theatre. I'm a true believer in laughter being the best medicine - second to that, fresh air and the outdoors.

I am a Male Walker, in my early 50s, based near Leyland, Lancahire. hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I would like someone to enjoy the outdoors with and have a laugh, just as a friend and to accompany me in the outdoors. It would be good to share my knowledge and experience of the outdoors. I prefer walking or canoeing, I have a Canadian 3 seater canoe. However, I'm up for almost anything. I camp (hammock, bivi or tent) whenever I can, I prefer the fresh air and waking up to beautiful scenery.
I prefer female company as I can relax and unwind better.
Whether you like long or short distance I'm more than happy to adapt the activities.

I've spent most of my life in the outdoors and need it for the health of body and mind. I've walked thousands of kilometres during lockdown, unfortunately time is more limited now.
I love to walk the hills, canoe in the lakes and canals and absorb the surroundings. I love camping, hammock, tent and bivi on basic sites or wild camps.
I'm good at navigation, in the past have climbed and caved (SRT). I've walked in most areas of England, Scotland and Wales.I like to be able to view nature, identify, photograph and uses of plants. I love learning and I'm sure you can teach me too. I'm fit and healthy, aches are just you show you still have your limbs attached aren't they?

I am a Female Walker, in my early 50s, based near Liverpool hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi my name is Lee and I live Liverpool.
I have decided to update this message as I have walked quite a few routes now thanks to a very good mate Tom who I met through the site. For me as much as I love walking but I also love admiring the view, maybe sneak in a little bit of rest while having a rest.
I do have friends but they are really not interested in the idea of walking, not sure why, maybe they're lazy.

The downside is I dont drive so would need to be able to get to the walks via public transport. So if I can get there via a train it's ideal.

If you are interested in helping me out, I am more than happy to pay my way :-)

I am a Female Walker, in my early 60s, based near Rotherham hoping to meet just Male new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi, I can do up to 10 miles walking and 20 cycling. I've done most of the Derbyshire walks. Done a lot of the Yorkshire Post walks too, which are more North and west Yorkshire. These have a simply drawn map and description,which I've managed to take the lead. Only ever got lost once. A confusing description, and I wasn't the only one who thought so.

I prefer Autumn, Winter and Spring walks. Not too good in the blazing heat, too many freckles. But our summers aren't that hot, usually.

I'm happy to explore further afield, and discover new places. Northumberland is on my list, and Scotland.

I am a Male Walker, in my late 50s, based near Merseyside hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I walk between 5 and 12 miles most days locally, but really enjoy a day in The Lakes or Snowdonia. I have little or no experience of the Peak District, but would like to meet someone familar with the area, to show me some beautiful and challenging routes.
I also hanker after camping out whilst attempting more challenging routes, like the coast-to-coast, but have yet to do so.
I visit the gym 3 or 4 times a week and play football each week, so consider myself reasonably fit. I work from home and have extremely flexible hours, so have plenty of freedom to take off at relatively short notice.
I like people with a smile, sense of irony and a compassionate nature. I am happy to be challenged with contrary views and philosophies to my own, but draw the line at devotees of Trump and Farage.

My Message: Hello, I am looking for walking companions. Living close to the Peak district, this is where I do most of my walking. I usually walk around 8_10 miles, but don't mind short walks too and like to take in the scenery, photography playing a big part of my memories. I have visited many walking areas and really enjoyed them, in particular the Long Mynd, Pembroke coast, Lake District, Devon, Dorset and Yorkshire.

I am a Male Walker, in my late 40s, based near West Yorkshire hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi all,

I'm a late-forties male, and I would like to meet new walking friends, male or female to spend time walking and enjoying our wonderful countryside and just being outdoors.

I enjoy all forms of walking, multi-day, long distance paths and less strenuous steadier day walks too. Oddly enough my walks usually end at a nice country pub or two! There is nothing nicer than a lovely pub at the end of a great days walking.
I'm experienced at map reading and navigating and I enjoy the planning of walks on both traditional paper maps and also using GPS.
Sometimes I'll take a lightweight tent and camp and make it an outdoors weekend or stay in a B&B.
My 'bread and butter' walking area is Yorkshire but I'm equally happy anywhere in the countryside.

I work part-time; so I've some availability on a weekday and also some weekends too. If you want someone to walk with who won't get you lost (I promise!) and has a good sense of humour, that would be me! Please do drop me a line..

I am a Male Walker, in my early 60s, based near Bishop Auckland hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi! I have enjoyed hill walking since my childhood - alongwith a sense of freedom, space and challenge it helps me refuel my inner strength to deal with anything during the working week.

I moved up to Bishop Auckland in 2010 because of my love of hill-walking. I walked the Pennine Way in 1986 and always enjoy revisiting bits of it. More recently I've completed the Dales Way, WHW, Great Glen Way, Dava Way,C2C,Offa's Dyke Path & Isaac's Tea Trail and hoped to complete Hadrian's Wall Path 2020 but didn't!!. In June 2021 I completed Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge in 11.5hrs for Alzheimer's Society (that's me on the right of the photo). I enjoy regular walking in the Lakes, Yorkshire Dales, Scottish Highlands, the Borders and Northumberland with a fantastic local fell walking club (which I help run) and am free many weekends and during the school holiday times.

My interests are all things musical and 20th Century painting. Looking forward to hearing from you. Happy 2022!! Andy

My Message: Hi, I live in Glasgow, with my border collie Rannoch, not too far from Loch Lomond. I used to be a regular walker in my younger days and I'm looking to get back into the great outdoors but would prefer to do it with some company, so I am looking for new friends to go walking with.
In the past I did the West Highland Way three times, The Great Glen Way once. Nowadays I'm a lot slower but I find that a good thing as it means I'm out in the green stuff longer.
I'm easy going, enjoy new challenges, and always up for a laugh, life's too short to be too serious !!!
I have a wee camper van and love wandering. I like to play guitar, love nature, wildlife, taking photos, and enjoy the simple pleasures in life.
If you fancy some company on a walk please get in touch.

My Preferred Walk Grades*: 1:2:3:4:5:6:7:

My Preferred Walk Areas:
North West Scotland; North East Scotland; Southern Scotland; North East England; North West England; Yorkshire; The English Midlands;
(click each link to see other walkers wanting to walk there)

A bit more about me:

I can cope with a little bit of scrambling if it is short and there are no steep drops. With regard to the weather, this is the UK so it's going to rain sooner or later isn't it? Fine with me, I've got waterproofs. I like walking with dogs and will bring my own. If pushed, I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are rather poor at best. I can drive and have my own Campervan/Motorhome.

I am also interested in:

  • Camping on Campsites - Camping where there is a shop, toilets, showers & possibly a pub;
  • Wild Camping - Camping out in the wilds well away from anyone & any facilities;

I am not actively looking for anyone other than a new walking companion but if that right person came along . . .

My Message: Hi, I'd like to meet people to go walking with, and possibly a bit of kayaking and mountain biking. I love walking in the Peak District, Lake District, the South West and am starting to explore Scotland. I've done some kayaking in the South West and would love to explore other coasts, lakes and rivers. I also love sailing. I would especially like to meet someone to share winter walking adventures on snow.

I would like to meet other enthusiastic, outdoorsy, down to earth people who like exploring and who care for the countryside they love so much.

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 40s, based near Gillingham hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi, I'm Paul and I started walking during the first Covid lockdown to improve my physical health and mental well-being.

I had also hoped it would reduce my waistline, but I like my food too much. Fitness has improved, but weight loss is still a work in progress. I have recently started indoor cycling as well to burn some more calories and wouldn't mind going for a bike ride either.

I've increased my walking distance over time and can now comfortably manage up to 10 miles a day and continuing to increase this further.

I've only walked around Kent so far and would like to walk further afield and see as much of the UK and beyond as possible. I'm self employed so pretty flexible when it comes to when I can walk and I drive, so travelling to meet up for walks is no problem.

I'm up for an adventure or challenge and equally like walking along the coast or in the countryside. Day walks, weekend walks, camping or backpacking are fine by me. Picnic stops to admire the views and visiting places of interest along the way, followed by a nice pub at the end of the day are some of my favourite things. I like most genres of music, have a wicked sense of humour and am very easy going.

If you would like some company on a walk or bike ride, please get in touch.

My Preferred Walk Grades*: 1:2:3:4:5:

My Preferred Walk Areas:

I am a Male Walker, in my early 50s, based near Rugby hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi! I'm Andy. Having recently taken early retirement I want to spend as much time as possible walking and exploring our beautiful country (and abroad, when we're allowed!), something I didn't have enough time to do when I was working. I often walk alone, but it would be good to have company sometimes, especially on trips further afield and multiday walks. I go walking midweek (Monday to Thursday) which might fit your schedule if you work shifts or at weekends.

A perfect walk for me is one where you can constantly look around in awe at fantastic scenery, so I tend to gravitate towards hillwalking, mountains and coasts. I am reasonably fit and may walk up to 13 miles in a day, but I always look at the quality of the walk rather than the length, so often walk shorter distances. A perfect walk should also have some food and a couple of beers built in, either during or afterwards (preferably both!)

My day-walking in the past few years has been in the Peak District and The Cotswolds, as they are fairly local to me, but with longer trips to Snowdonia and Scotland. However, I am a confident navigator and am looking forward to exploring other areas of the country. I am a fan of staying in nice pubs with rooms when away from home for a night or two.

A bit more about me:

When it comes to Scrambling & Edges I'm OK with the occasional edge or scramble but don't go looking for it. I prefer warm, dry & sunny weather but can cope with the odd shower. Sorry, but I really do not like walking with Dogs. Even if I say so myself, I consider my map reading & navigation skills to be excellent. I can drive and have a car.

I am a Qualified Ramblers Holidays Walk Leader.

Important: For the avoidence of doubt I am definitely not looking for anything other than someone to go walking with.

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 50s, based near Birmingham hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi,

Just discovered this site.

I have recently started walking again to help stay healthy. Not done anything too challenging yet and I am as happy strolling round a village as I am going over the hills.

I tend to get on better with younger people and for some reason most of my friends are female. I'd like to think I am good company and at the very least I can keep up a conversation. Very ok with a bit of companionable silence as well.

I am an active volunteer so I don't have immense amounts of free time but I want to keep walking and company is the best motivation. :)
