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. To be honest, my map reading & navigation skills are a bit averagely average. I can drive and have a car.

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

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

My Message: I live close to the Peak District. I know it really well and love it, but equally love walking in Wales, The Lakes, Yorkshire, Northumbria and other parts too. I first got the walking bug whilst doing a charity walk in Snowdonia in 1998 (Crib Goch at 4 a.m.). I'm happy walking on hilltops and along valleys, canals, rivers and dales as well as mountain tops. I walk to chill and enjoy what's there, not to just race to the end, what would make my day complete though is some good company to share the views, some good conversation (serious or silly), laughter and after walk refreshments. I'm chilled, have a quick wit and great sense of humour. My other interests are landscape photography, art, windsurfing, city breaks and the theatre to mention a few but always happy to try something new. If you enjoy your walking and are interested in joining me, get in touch.

A bit more about me:

I quite enjoy Scrambling & Edges but don't like too much exposure. I'm happy to walk in all weathers - sunshine, snow, hail, wind & rain - bring it on. I like walking with dogs but do not have one of my own. I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are pretty good. I can drive and have a car.

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;
  • Peak Bagging - where the aim is to climb all the hills or mountains on a particular list such as 'bagging' all the Wainwrights or Munros;
  • Long Distance Path Walking - Multi-day walks like The Pennine Way, Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk;
  • Road Cycling

By putting my profile on here I am hoping to meet someone special.

I am a Male Walker, in my early 60s, based near Wa11 hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hello to everyone, I've been a hill and mountain walker for years now. In my 60s, I am inclined to sit on a comfortable rock and watch the world go by. During a walk on a nice day.

I would like to meet females for new adventures. I'm happy to do any grade of walk. From half a day on the flat to a couple of days backpacking in the hills. Camping B+Bs Pubs or Hotels. I can do weekdays and weekends.

Many thanks, hope to hear from you.

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

My Message: Hi, long distance point to point walking is my favourite type of walking although love a weekend in the lakes or similar. Ive just does the wainwrights Coast to Coast, and previously have walked the West Highland Way and the first part of the GR5 in the alps amongst others. I do have a dog and would like to walk a bit more with him as he can do long distances but so far haven't taken him on many trips so he can stay at home if thats a deal breaker. I am going to take a sabbatical from work next year and keen to pack plenty of walking in. Some more of the GR5 next summer is at the top of the list and then the Pembrokeshire way.
I am reasonably fit - happy to walk in all weathers (although wouldn't we all prefer a bit of sunshine and blue skies !) for up to 8 or so hours a day with a pub at the end ideally!

My Message: I would describe myself as an out door person, I'm retired, but am never short of things to do, DIY etc, often for other people.

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 70s, based near Bradford hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Message: Hello, I'm Roy, a young at heart fell walker looking for an easy going walking companion for walks both at home and abroad. I love the countryside so I'm not really fussed about particular areas in this country. The ones I've selected are where I walk regularly but would like to explore a little further afield and don't mind travelling to a decent walk. Abroad, my favourite walking areas are within the Mediterranean Climate regions (prefer the more reliable weather!). Not into peak bagging or route marches. Much prefer to take in the scenery, wildlife, local history and a suitable hostelry en route! I also have a wide range of other interests which include cycling, hot air ballooning, live gigs, theatre and travel. I'm also pet friendly so don't mind a canine companion coming along. Look forward to hearing from you, Roy.

I have just retired and have a desire to do a lot more walking and/or tour the UK. I have recently bought an old campervan due to this crazy COVID world! Which will help to keep myself and others safe. I have walked the White Peak Way 90 miles a couple of times which is a lovely walk and a couple of other (flat) long distance walks. Not so keen on camping, prefer B&B, Youth Hostel or similar, what a wimp! I like to go at a steady plod...... short or longer walks. I also enjoy narrowboating with family and friends.

My Message: Hoping to meet male 50-65 for company on walks, bike rides, and maybe runs, initially in the Yorkshire Dale's where I have a caravan base. Have walked Yorkshire 3 peaks on my own in 2019 and take part in trail running events in the Lakes and Yorkshire. I don't really like large group walks, preferring relative solitude!I work full time, often from home, and flexibly, but would mainly be walking at weekends. Fitness is important to me, as is being out and about in the countryside. I like to challenge myself and would like to complete the Wainwright's, Dale's high way, and the Wales Coast Path in the next few years.

I am a Female Walker, in my late 30s, based near East London hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I have very much embraced long distance walking here in the UK since the pandemic hit us.

When I have a spare weekend day, I tend to do a section of the North Downs or South Downs Way. I just completed the SDW.

I recently completed 100km section of the Jurassic Coast over 2 days for charity.

I have Epping Forest literally on my doorstep so if I can't fit a journey in, I can be found very local too.

I'm about to travel to the Lake District for the 3rd time in a year for a walking holiday. I will be solo camping in Great Langdale, walking by day and spending my evenings lapping up the atmosphere and beer/wine at The Old Dungeon Ghyll.

I would love to bag all of the Wainwrights (currently very low in my progress). I am walking Wainwright's Coast to Coast next summer. Walking the Camino is also on the bucket list.

Whilst I do enjoy solo adventures I'd love some company for more adventurous hikes and climbs in the Lake District to build confidence with the higher fells.

I work full-time from home in East London so my walking is on the weekends except when I take a walking holiday.

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

My Message: Hi, I'm looking to meet some friendly company to go walking with mainly on weekends due to work commitments and ideally within an hours drive of Maidenhead. I like to walk 5-10 miles at a reasonable pace, but don't want a route march. The perfect walk includes good lighthearted conversation, a coffee break and a pub at the end. I mainly walk the Thames Path and the Chilterns these days, with a bit of the South West Coast Path thrown in when I'm in the area. Happy to consider longer walks further afield when time permits and definitely want to do more of the South West Coast Path.

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

My Preferred Walk Areas:
The English Midlands; East Anglia; The Heart of England; South East England; South West England;
(click each link to see other walkers wanting to walk there)

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. 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 but do not have one of my own. I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are pretty good. I can drive and have a car.

I am also interested in:

  • Long Distance Path Walking - Multi-day walks like The Pennine Way, Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk;
  • Motorcycling

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

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

My Message: Looking for both Female and male walking friends to explore different areas in the UK. I live in Buckinghamshire Chilterns hills and would like to have friends to explore more around here. At the same time would love to explore together other places!!
I have my own car but can drive only around my area. Rely on the train for longer distances.
Visited the peak district last May and very soon going to the lake district.
I'm aiming to improve my hiking skills.

I'm calm and peaceful. Spiritual, but not religious.Not actively looking for anything except a walking companion, unless the right person comes along

A bit more about me:

I can cope with a little bit of scrambling if it is short and there are no steep drops. I prefer warm, dry & sunny weather but can cope with the odd shower. I like walking with dogs but do not have one of my own. To be honest, my map reading & navigation skills are a bit averagely average. I can drive and have a car.

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;
  • Long Distance Path Walking - Multi-day walks like The Pennine Way, Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk;
  • Back Packing - Multi-day walks carrying all your gear & wild camping;

By putting my profile on here I am hoping to meet someone special.

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

My Message: I have recently re-purchased my old campervan and am planning on bagging all the Bridgets (I think that's what they're called) in the Peak District. I am relatively fit (although would love to lose a few pounds) and have enjoyed walking in the Lakes in the past although I think I have only completed 40 Wainwright's. The Peak District is much closer for me and means I can also do some as a day trip. I have quite a busy life and have a good group of friends but they have their own lives and partners and not always free for walking. I've got two 'adult' children who sometimes live at home (when they need feeding and home comforts). I enjoy stand up comedy, sewing, podcasts, r6, a bit of trashy tv, a pub quiz with friends and all the usual things.

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

My Message: Hi. I'm Steve. I live in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, so not far from the Peak District and the Yorkshire Dales. Hoping to meet someone of a similar age for scenic walks and interesting conversation in those areas although I have a car and am prepared to travel a reasonable distance. I am fairly new to walking but am quite fit (used to go to the gym regularly before the Covid-19 pandemic) and have recently been walking both alone and on group walks locally and in the Derbyshire Dales and Peak District. I haven't really had any experience of map reading as I have generally been in the company of someone else who knew where they were going! - so it would be useful to pair up with a competent map reader but it's not essential (we could just make it up as we went along! - what's the worst that could happen?). I am retired so can be available any time given sufficient notice. Looking forward to exploring the countryside in good company.

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 30s, based near Sunderland hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

I want build up to walk the west highland way, finished with Nevis, and also the pennine way. Mount Meru and Kilimanjaro is also a target of mine.
I have kids every other weekend, so it will be my weekends without I'm available.. Once they're a little older they will come with me.

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

My Message: I like nothing more than a day walk, any time of year, whatever the weather. I prefer a more challenging walk but strolls are welcome too. I love being amongst nature, I find it very calming and grounding after a set of shifts.

I'd like to find a fit walking friend who doesn't mind what the weather brings.
I am not looking for a relationship, just a likeminded individual to share some pleasant hikes with.

I enjoy ridge walks and have done the CMD arête, Crib Goch, Aonach Eagach and lots of the other main ones. Scrambling is a passion too - the Wildboarclough one is my favourite to date. I enjoy Snowdonia, Tryfan, Snowdon, The Glyders etc. I'm happy on flatter walks too - I was brought up in Lincolnshire! I like cycling too, I've a road and mountain bike. I have a car so travelling is no problem.
