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

My Message: Hi, I'm a keen walker, now retired so have more time to get out and about. I walk quite regularly with friends but as they are still working this is confined largely to weekends. We've enjoyed tackling many of the long distance paths over the years. I walk a lot on my own too or with my dog but would like to meet a like-minded walking buddy, preferably reasonably nearby. It would be good perhaps to share some Wainwright bagging or explore new areas more or less anywhere in the British Isles or even beyond. There are so many places I still want to see and it would be great to do so in good company. I'd love to hear from you.

My Preferred Walk Grades*: 1:2:3:4:5:6:7:8:9:

My Preferred Walk Areas:
North East England; North West England; Yorkshire; The English Midlands; Wales; South East England;
(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. 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:

  • 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;

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 early 50s, based near Chipping hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi there

I live in the Ribble Valley/Trough of Bowland, and have some lovely country lane walks on the doorstep, from a quick 30 minute trot, to a few hours paw stretching

I love going up the Lakes, and it doesn't take a lot of persuasion to get me there

Whilst not a hardened hiker, I do love a good walk there, especially with the dangling carrot of lunch at The Swan at Newby Bridge or tea at The Cuckoo Brow at Far Sawrey

If there longer than a day, I normally stay over in Bowness, and have been know to enjoy the odd swift one, or a cocktail or two...

If you fancy joining me, then drop by and say hello...

Jonathan

My Message: Hi, my name is Julie, I am single, 59yrs 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 someone/small group of friends/like minded people to go out for the day or weekend exploring the countryside, preferably at weekends. I was an assessor with the Duke of Edinburgh so can read a map reasonably well. 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.

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

My Message: Hi, I live in Perthshire and have spent many years walking the hills in Scotland and abroad both with friends and animals (dogs). Over the last few years I have not been able to maintain that level of fitness, so now find myself starting at the beginning again. Would love to meet up with new friends who would like to join me getting back to fitness and enjoying nature and the hills once more. Initially would be looking for slower paced, shorter walks and would love to have the company of a dog once more, so if you have a dog, even better!!! If what I have said appeals then please drop me a line and hopefully we can find some great walks together.

My Message: Hi there, Lover of nature and my ideal day is a scenic walk and prefer an amble rather than fast pace ramble so can take it all in. Good map readers especially welcome as I was last in the queue when senses of direction were handed out! I'm free most weekends and sometimes mid week.

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

My Message: I am passionate about the hills, wild places and like a challenge. I am an experienced hillwalker but equally enjoy social walks. I'm easy going and have a good soh. Semi-retired so can walk in the week as well as at week-ends. I usually walk with groups - or alone to practice navigation (which I am reasonable at). I have walked a lot in Scotland, North Wales and Europe but it would be nice to explore the local area more. So it would be good to meet up with like-minded walking buddies as its always better to share the experience. Having recently moved to the Yorkshire dales - there are lots of tempting hills and long distance paths!! Looking for walking companions to share walks particularly in the Lake district and/or the Yorkshire dales to do moderate/strenuous walks.

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

My Message: Hi there I'm Pete.
I've been exploring the lakes & Yorkshire dales for a good few years now as it's within easy reach from home, I've been walking those areas for years & can recall many routes from memory, but if needed I am a competent map reader (though not perfect I did get lost in the fog once) & would be happy to guide anyone less experienced.

I like something a bit more challenging now & again having done Jacks rake, & the traverse paths on great gable & bowfell. Will be climbing sharp edge & lords rake this year all being well. Although preferring the high level walks I'm just as happy lower down, just love the peace & quiet of being in nature.
For the future I'm looking to venture into the Peak District, Scotland or further afield.

I'm free every other weekend & being self employed can take time off during the week with little notice.

I am a Male Walker, in my late 30s, based near Wolverhampton hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi

I enjoy walking and scrambling in the UK, and simply looking for a handful of friends to enjoy some company with in the hills. Work and family take up a lot of time, the occasional mid week walk works best.

I've climbed, scrambled and walked in the UK and done a number of the alpine 4000ers.

Don't be put off....I am happy at any pace....just want some good company and outdoors friends.

I'm in Wolverhampton so many areas are fairly accessible.

My Message: Hi. My name is Viv, I am 50 and live in Aldershot, Hampshire. I am a photographer, a keen walker and hillwalker. I am looking for a lady to join me on some adventures. I have done a little bit of mountaineering (with a good friend who is a trained mountain guide) in Switzerland and in Snowdonia - I am very new to that. I have walked for years though in Snowdonia, The Lakes, Isle of Skye, and locally where I live near Surrey. I do not have navigation skills so looking for a lady to join me who does and is willing to go on some walking and photography adventures into the wild. I love Snowdonia and have been to the summit twice now with other attempts. I'm not the fittest person but very determined and willing to push myself.
I am a very friendly and happy go lucky person, I am also a busy mum, wife, photographer and therapist too - so walking helps me unwind and refresh.
Please do contact me if you live in or near NE Hampshire and would like to link up and go on some walking adventures.

My Message: Hi!
I'm new to Cumbria (and this site) - having recently moved to the area - after many years ambition to do so! So, primarily looking for male/female friends 'into the outdoors' - mainly fell walking/scrambling/Munro bagging - and all with my best friend - my English Springer Spaniel. Must like dogs - especially mine!
Recently returned from a few days mountain walking in the West Highlands - only another 184 Munros to go! HA! If you are up for that - good news!
Love the mountains and fells. Currently completing the Wainwrights - having given myself the challenge to do in a year! Enjoy a pint of real ale at the end of a decent day out - just reward!
I'm not looking for a relationship per se - just friends to share my love of the outdoors, hopefully with a good line in chat, ability not to take things (themselves) too seriously and up for a bit of 'leg pulling!'Enjoy the craic!'

UPDATE:-

Just completed the Wainwrights in less than 8 months -( :!
Thanks to those who have shared some of those walks with myself and my ESS!

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

My Message: Hi.. great website! I moved up to County Durham in 2010 because of work and previous love of the scenery. I did Pennine Way 30 years ago (and love revisiting bits of it)but more recently the Dales Way, WHW, Great Glen Way, Dava Way, Isaac's Tea Trail. I enjoy regular walking in the Lakes, Yorkshire Dales, Scottish Highlands, the Borders and Northumberland. I've just completed C2C in 9 days (summer 2018) raising funds for the Great Northern Air Ambulance but shorter circular walks are just as appealing. I enjoyed the 2014 Hadrian's Wall Trekathon and raised over £500 for Macmillan Cancer Support. I often walk alone but always prefer human company to share the walk with. Am free many weekends (when not being musical) and am looking forward to hearing from you. Happy 2018!! Andy

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

My Message: Hi,

There's no record breaking walking in me unless well planned and I've other interests that keep me exercised and outdoors too but I'm very keen to meet a local walking partner... for local walking

.... one who might encourage me to try new walks and more challenging ones - and be happy to take a welcome break on the way or at the end.

So if you like walking on my side of the lakes, by national park, Bowland forest or Malhamdale please get in touch. Occasionally further afield is fine too.

I keep to walks up to 8 miles generally but im happy with more or just a 3-5 mile on my own.... a lot depends on time or terrain. I like to set off in the dry when the views are sharp & be prepared for rain if I must.

I generally know my walking paths (& like to be near water ) - that's why im unused to map reading - but can if I must.

With Best wishes. Alyson

It would be fab to meet people to do things like that with. Also interested in challenges (did Everest Base Camp this year) and would love to go to Ben Nevis, Skye and other exciting places.

Equally happy to meet people just to go for a walk.

My Preferred Walk Grades*: 3:4:5:6:

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

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 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;
  • Back Packing - Multi-day walks carrying all your gear & wild camping;
  • Road Cycling
  • Mountain Biking

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

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

My Message: Hello, UPDATE - would anyone like to walk together up Ben Nevis on Monday 3rd September 2018? Very last minute idea. Would like to walk the tourist path. Not confident enough to tackle alone due to lack of navigation skills. Mountain forecast for Monday seems fine. Pls message me if interested!

Hello, I am single, currently living in the Northamptonshire area and would like to meet male or female walking partners to explore more of the UK. Have been a member of this site for a few years but returning to it after an absence. I am open to suggestions and able to travel.I have done a fair amount of walking in far flung places abroad and some here in the UK (Snowdon and Peak District), reasonably fit, can do a bit of scrambling but am not a climber. Am open to BandBs, hostels or possibly camping, though I am not an experienced camper and don't yet have equipment! My map and navigation skills are not good, so would welcome someone with these skills so we don't get hopelessly lost. I am easy going and enjoy cafe's/coffee shops and a country pub but am not a big drinker.

My Preferred Walk Areas:

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'm happy to walk in most weathers but do not like snow and ice. Sorry, but I really do not like walking with Dogs. Sadly, my map reading & navigation skills are pretty hopeless. 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;
  • Back Packing - Multi-day walks carrying all your gear & wild camping;

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 40s, based near Faversham hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi, my name is Gavin and I'm looking to find new walking / camping friends to explore the outdoors near to me and to have the occasional adventure further afield. I'm a busy teacher and father but my wife and children aren't as keen on the longer distance walks, and especially the camping, that I like to do. I'm recovering from a back injury and walking is a good way for me to keep my fitness levels up, and as long as I can have the occasional lie down, I'm good to go. I recently did some solo walking and camping in the very north of Scotland and really want to go back, possibly to the Hebrides. Would love to meet a like minded person or a group to walk, chat, camp and, perhaps, plan the odd bigger adventure.

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

My Message: Hello, I am Bill, an active outdoor guy who likes walking, naturally, but enjoys most sports outdoors, biking, caravaning, kayaking but not white water anymore, been there done that. For winter days I also enjoy line dancing and with the right partner, ballroom dancing, although I'm a bit rusty these days. While quite happy walking in a group, I am a member of the Ramblers, it would be nice to walk and enjoy the company of a woman. Most Ramblers groups are couples which is fair enough. Though still working part time I can usually manage to get out and about any day, with a bit of forward planning so I look forward to meeting new friends soon.

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

My Message: Hi, I'm Adrian, single, retired, fit, and keen to meet an active fit female walking companion to explore our beautiful islands, and further afield. I have a camper van to tour and also to use as a mobile base for circular and linear walks, perhaps on long distance national trails. I enjoy all types of walks both short and full day walks and long distance. I have completed a number of classic long distance paths including The Pennine Way and Wainwrights Coast to Coast, but I'm not against doing these again if my companion wished to do them. Not so good on heights these days so I avoid walking on high level narrow ledges. I am a vegetarian who eats fish, non competitive nature, passionate about our natural world, fun loving, often quirky. Other interests include camping, cycling, casual nature walks, am NT and RSPB member, conservation volunteering, reading, eclectic taste in music, art cinema, theatre, the arts, wildlife gardening and DIY. Am politically a bit of a lefty. If any of this appeals, please get in touch.

My Message: Hi, I am Mark and get out to walk most weekends. Sometimes during the week if time allows. I walk all over the UK and sometimes overseas. I am happy to do easy or hard walks, I just like being in the countryside. Recently I have been walking alone but prefer to walk with others who share an interest in the outdoors.

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

My Message: Hi, I love to explore beautiful Northumberland and have a chat along the way. It would be great to go further afield too,the Lakes or Yorkshire for example. I don't have a car but am happy to share petrol costs.
I'd like to build up my level of fitness but more important to me is just enjoying a walk. And if there's a nice café or pub along the way, all to the good!

I don't work now so am potentially free on weekdays or at weekends.

Look forward to hearing from you, Alison :)
