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

My Message: Others describe me as smiley, bright and bubbly. I am very friendly and caring and love the company of adults and children alike.

I love being outdoors: walking, kayaking, cycling or just gardening. I am happiest up a mountain, taking photos and exploring new wild places. I am happy camping, Youth Hostelling or staying somewhere posh.... all part of the adventure. Special moments are enjoying a pack up sitting onto of a hill and admiring the view.

I've spent most of my life getting outdoors when I can, and need it for the health of body and mind. I will go out whatever the weather and actually like defying the elements when it chooses to pour it down and blow a hooley. However 18 degrees C, blue skies and puffy clouds are my favourite.

I'm good at navigation, and have my hill and moorland leader and gold mountain navigation awards. However, when I am on my own, I always have my GPS on so that I can double check where I am at all times. I like taking photos of anything interesting....and am trying to learn my plants and trees. I'm generally fit and healthy, but certainly get the aches after big adventures.

I also enjoy music and singing and play the violin. I am a Christian and try to live out love, joy, peace, patience and kindness. I have 2 amazing sons, both grown up now.

So do be in touch if you would like a walk together.

I can cope with a little bit of scrambling if it is short and there are no steep drops. 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 a Qualified Hill and Moorland Leader (formerly Walking Group Leader (WGL)) - Mountain Training Association.

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;

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 30s, based near Sunderland hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I've always been interested in hiking up mountains but never gave myself the time for it. I'm wanting to learn to read a map and navigate properly, and put more effort in and build experience so i can tackle the more exposed ridges.
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.

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 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.

The Peak District is on my doorstep, but have walked in areas including Wales, the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, Assynt in Scotland. I have been up Ben Nevis, Snowdon, and Scafell Pike, but would happily walk there again.

I have done the three peaks in the Yorkshire Dales but over a couple of days.

My level of fitness is good and improving, though that is a story to share during a walk.

I am a life member of English Heritage and the National Trust. As such I can visit such places with a guest. I love photography, history, wildlife etc. I would rather not talk about education or computing (Unless its for a good cause).

My walking aims are to look at amazing views, Camp in amazing places including a plot of land I can wild camp on in Scotland, and just enjoy it all.

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

My Message: Hi, Lesley here,
Just completed the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge and the Ullswater Way 22 mile Challenge last month. I was camping at Nether Wasdale in May to walk the Mosedale Round with friends.

I've previously walked all the Lake District summits, extensively in Snowdonia and Scotland and in my own neck of the woods, The Forest of Bowland as well as abroad.

I love being outdoors and although I love sunshine I'll walk in any weather if the mood takes me. I particularly love coast and ridge walking but rivers and woodlands are beautiful too.
I'm interested in wildlife and nature, family and friends, art and architecture, yoga and music.
I like getting away for weekends and short breaks. I cycle too!

I took early retirement from advisory teaching 7 years ago to project manage a full property restoration which is now almost complete.

Therefore I have time to seriously explore the fells once again.
Love to hear from you.

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

My Message: Enjoy walking and off to Lakes for a few days on my own and found this site whilst searching for a couple of walks around Coniston and Ambleside. Have moved back to Cheshire recently and thought it might be interesting to find walking companions. Never thought about asking for walking companions.

Currently work in Liverpool during the week with a combination of working from home so tend to walk at night or weekends. Enjoy Cheshire walks and wider Walks in Wales, Lakes, etc and happy for 2-4 hour routes with a bit of variety but don't always want to drive to walk when I'm on my own. Generally expect to be available every other weekend.

Have kept active over lockdown and average around 20 miles a week but still have potential and ambition to lose a few pounds in walking more regularly. Don't really have a bucket list of walks but would be happy to join up and target specific walks or a series of walks.

My Message: I've been walking mostly in the Peak District, where I live, and the Lake District recently. I've been ticking off Wainwrights and have only 8 to go and I've started on the Birketts. I'm a widower and retired so can walk midweek and have mostly been walking alone for a number of years. I'm very fit for my age and like longer mountain walks. I've also walked in France, Spain, Germany, Italy Greece and Turkey. I've even done a bit of sport climbing in the last few years - rock climbing was a passion many years ago. I've also rediscovered an interest in photography and have been a yoga practitioner for more than 30 years. I don't like walking in large groups unless it's just a social occasion (like a friends 80th birthday recently).

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

My Message: Hi, I am looking for fellow walkers to share the joys of the great outdoors with followed by a well earned beer or meal! I am fairly fit and for me I like being out being out there in the countryside listening to the birds. seeing the wild flowers, enjoying the views as much as bagging peaks - although this is always an added bonus. I am as happy in the lowlands, in the woods, by the sea as I am navigating my way across highlands and moorland. I am a reasonable navigator and I enjoy exploring off the beaten track. If any of this sounds appealing and you are willing to join me being out there in the wild enjoying the splendour of our countryside. I have my own transport and can walk occasionally mid week or at the weekend to suit.

I know nothing about walking/hiking! I am going to be climbing Kilimanjaro with my daughter next year and I want to start walking so that I can train for this trek.

My Message: Hi, I live in Warminster, Wiltshire. I am looking for both male and female walking companions. I am now retired which gives me free time during the week as well as weekends.

I am very happy to walk locally but also really wish to explore new areas. I have walked some sections of the South West Coast Path and West Wales Coast Path and would love to walk more.

I am not a hardened walker but enjoy walks from 5 to 12 miles and occasionally longer weekend/few days walking. To finish off occasionally with a pub meal is an attractive thought. I love the outdoors and really appreciate the countryside and scenery on route.

My Message: Hello, I'm on the lookout for new walking companions that share my passion for walking in the hills. I try to get out into the North York Moors or Dales as frequently as possible. Weekends in Snowdonia and Cumbria are always treasured. I'm trying to expand my general wildlife knowledge and have also started dabbling in some basic foraging. I usually manage to walk abroad once a year (the Julian Alps in Slovenia are my absolute favourite). Would love to hook up with like minded folk to share a walk or two so please get in touch.

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 62 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.

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'm not bothered about dogs one way or the other. 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;
  • 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;
  • Road Cycling
  • Running

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

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

My Message: I'm interested in meeting fellow walking and outdoor enthusiasts who are fun and don't take things too seriously, who enjoy a bit of banter along the way. I'm based in Staffordshire and can easily travel to the Peak District, Shropshire, Wales and S. Yorkshire for day walks, and go further afield for weekends.

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'm not bothered about dogs one way or the other. 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;
  • Long Distance Path Walking - Multi-day walks like The Pennine Way, Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk;

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 late 60s, based near Llanfyllin, hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi
I'm Dan 69 years old, semi retired and looking for a walking friend,
Have a P.L.B. but they do not make very good walking companions, I do any kind of walks from short walks published by the R.S.P.B.and other organisations, or cut out of magazines by friends, to 8 to 10 mile circular walks, I don't do national trails or peak bagging,.
I like remote mountain walks and moorland walks, I use off the peg circular walks mostly, but like to plan and research my own walks as well, I like to follow rivers across open moorland to their source My other interests are driving on mountain passes, train trips and visiting museums,.
Dan.

My Message: Hi, I am looking to find companion to go for a walk. I work full time during the week so only have time to do walks on Saturdays/Sundays. I enjoyed walking in the Peak District and around Staffordshire Moorlands, but an easy stroll around villages or parks would be great too. Would like to walk again to Snowdonia and Lake District and open for possibilities to walk somewhere down south. I like taking photos every now and again with either my phone or my other cameras.

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

My Message: Hi

I'm based in Liverpool (Waterloo/Crosby) and have recently started to do some easy walking to ease myself gently into doing this. With a view to either doing this slightly more often or being able to tackle something a little more ambitious (nothing major though, ultimately it has to be fun).

I have in the past been a member of a rambling group which did some fairly substantial walks around the country but that's a long time ago. I'm now trying to get out and about a bit more and I'm currently working on my walking fitness which is probably around 2-3 hours walking at a reasonable pace. So I would class myself in the grades 2,3,4 at least for the moment (no real expectation to progress much further than 4). My current walking has been local but I do love to travel and I'm handily placed for such as the Lake District. My fitness is reasonable because I try to maintain this for skiing once or twice a year.

I work full time (weekdays) and also volunteer at an animal rescue on Sunday mornings. So I may only be available some Saturdays, maybe Sundays after 2pm, and occasional weekday evenings. Hopefully my occasional availability doesn't put anyone off.

It would be nice to meet like-minded people who like to get out and about whilst enjoying other people's company.

Hope to hear from you.

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

My Message: Do you crave to get out in the hills? Can you get to the Malvern Hills, the Brecon Beacons and/or Black Mountains?

If so, then I'd love to meet!

I live near Ledbury, about an hour's drive from the Brecons and am looking for some like-minded people to get out and explore with. Sadly, my closest friends live in the north, where I used to live, and Covid has made even occasional walking holidays a challenge, so I'm either walking alone or dragging my (sometimes willing, sometimes not so much) partner out with me.

In terms of fitness levels and navigation - I've never done crampons or climbing, so not ultra-intrepid, but I'm happy enough tackling several Brecon summits in a day with reasonable visibility. I've done Snowdon, Cadair Idris and a fair few of the Lakeland mountains. I'm still learning compass work but quite good at interpreting an OS map.

A bit of general stuff about me: I'm an Aussie by birth but lived here most of my adult life. I work part-time (I'm a web editor for a national health organisation) and could usually meet Tuesdays, Fridays or on the weekend. In terms of hobbies and interests, I've just finished a masters in creative writing and also do some voluntary work with men who have experienced mental health problems. I love bike riding, reading, good films and TV.

Oh and I love dogs but don't own one, so if you bring one on our walks: bonus!!

If any of this sounds like you, please get in touch.

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

My Message: Hi, my name is Julie, I am single, 61yrs old, a secretary in a school (so lots of lovely holidays) and enjoy walking. My friends unfortunately aren't really keen on walking and I would like to find either a female or male or small group of friends/like minded people to go out for the day or weekend exploring the countryside, preferably at weekends and build up my stamina. Would like to think I am good company, good fun, easy going, enjoy a good laugh and a lively debate. I do have a small dog, so must like dogs. Would really enjoy some good company and to the end the day in a nice pub with good food and a well earned glass of wine. ps I haven't done much walking for a while, so a little unfit.

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, city breaks and the theatre. If you enjoy your walking and are interested in joining me, get in touch.

Chris

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

My Message: Hi,
I'm Catherine, 42 from Preston. I have done quite a lot of walking, mainly in the Lakes and North Wales but other areas too.I would like to do more in Scotland. I have also done some treks abroad. I have previously walked a lot with my parents but they are getting past the long and high stuff now. Also I met a great walking partner on here about 10 years ago but she has moved abroad for work! I'm now struggling to get out walking as I don't want to go by myself. I love anything outdoors, pretty much any weather. I love camping and a good pint after a walk. I'm looking for people in 30's/40's who would like to go on day walks to begin with to see how we get on. Anyway, drop me a line if you'd like to make contact and get out walking. Thanks
