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

My Message: Hi! I'm a fun-loving, adventurous guy living in Newbury, Berkshire. I'm happy walking alone, but it's so much more fun (and better conversation) with two so I'm looking for male or female friends to join me on walks locally (around Berks/Hants/Wilts) or further afield (anywhere really - from Cornwall to Scotland, Snowdonia to Norfolk).

I also enjoy scrambling (tho' not great with heights), cycling (more off-road than on), camping (wild or civilised), flying kites - I'm essentially very adaptable! I'm happy to explore any areas of the UK - the wilder the better - so if you're interested in joining me then please drop me a line.

ps: I love dogs and have my own, but he's not great with distances so tends to stay at home mostly, unless it's a short walk and my company likes dogs.

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

My Preferred Walk Areas:
North West Scotland; North East Scotland; North East England; North West England; Yorkshire; The English Midlands; Wales; East Anglia; The Heart of England; South East England; South West England;

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

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 Ashton-in-makerfield hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi All, New to Walking/Hiking but got to enjoy it via Caving. Getting to and from Caves. I have recently relocated from Essex to Lancashire and looking to meet new friends who can show me the ropes, so to speak. Only had moderate experience of walking/hikes but keen to expand this and set myself some new challenges. I enjoy good company, love the wild outdoors, a nice pub/inn to enjoy a drink/meal, travelling (not just to a sandy beach) but to explore the area I visit. I am looking for both male and female friends or maybe a group I can join. Anything else you would like to know about me, please ask. Look forward to hearing from you all.

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

*** hi there - staying in Grasmere on Saturday night (7th) - will be going for a walk during the day, with somewhere to eat en route, and out for a drink or two in the evening, if you fancy joining me (for the day and/or evening), then shout up :) ***

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

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

My Message: Hi, my name is Chris. I am a fairly experienced walker from Chester. My wife no longer walks seriously, so I would be interested to meet a companion (female or male) to join me walking - preferably in the Lake District where I have a holiday home near to Kendal.

In 2018 I have completed the West Highland Way, and previously the Coast to Coast, The Wicklow Way and the Dingle Way in Ireland.

I prefer to walk in company these days though not in groups, and enjoy stimulating conversation, taking the time to savour my surroundings and enjoying the wonderful views these sceptred isles present. I have a good sense of humour, and can see the funny side of most things! I am always accompanied by at least 2 of my working Springer Spaniels.

As I am retired, every day is the weekend for me.

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

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!
Just returned from a few days mountain walking in the West Highlands - another 100 Munros to go! HA! If you are up for that - good news!
Love the mountains - but also enjoy a well deserved pint at the end of a walk: tend to find an extra pace when I know a pub serving decent real ale is in sight!
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!'

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

My Message: I'm looking for a companion(s) to go on walks in the Lake District. I know the Lake District (particularly the Northern end) well, and would enjoy sharing days out walking with another. I often find I get on better with people 1-to-1 so that would be my preference (rather than in a larger group). High fells, or lower valleys are both possibilities, although I do enjoy a good ridge walk - anyone for the High Street range?
I'm pretty fit, but don't feel so much of a need to race up loads of peaks as I used to! (And fell running has never particularly appealed to me!)
I have my daughter with me every other weekend (and half the school holidays). However, I'm self-employed and largely tend to fit my work around other things, so I am often free during weekdays, as well as roughly every other weekend.

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

My Message: Hello is anyone free to join myself and my dog Cocoa, for day hikes during the week as I work the weekends? Although this may well change in the near future to becoming a weekend warrior. I have travelled to hike fairly extensively all over the UK national parks and to mention a few places; have visited Snowdonia, Isle of Skye; Peak District; Cotswolds and parts of Hadrian's Wall. Favourite places are definitely the Lakes and Cairngorms. I would say I am of average fitness and tend to walk fairly slowly but do like to be out all day so roughly aim for about 10 miles a day regardless of terrain. I like to bag 2/3 summits at a time if possible. Definitely want to see what Torridon is like but it's a long way to drive on my own and I hope to visit the Alps and Pyrenees as well as the rest of the world to hike or cycle in the future. i love the adventures with my pup but it would be great to find some company who I can actually hold a conversation with!

My Message: White male aged 66, 40 years walking experience, living in Sussex, fit and friendly seeks to meet an adventurous male or woman walking companion aged about 40+ for walking local and national trails together in the UK and in Europe. Any individual willing to explore the hidden and interesting bye ways of Britain, if warm sleep out during the summer and enjoy a few beers at the end of a days challenging walking, before England and Wales become so sanitized it will look like a theme park( see George Monbiot).

Probably suitable for someone living in London or the South-East but, but if practicable, I would not exclude other contacts from around the country. Most important is the love of the countryside, coastal paths and Highlands of Scotland, quiet places and friendly conversation.

I am a Female Walker, in my late 50s, 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, 58yrs 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.

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

My Preferred Walk Areas:
North West England; Yorkshire; Wales;
(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 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:

  • 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 mid 60s, based near Wallasey hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi I'm Dave a 65 year old male looking for a female walking companion. I live on the Wirral and generally walk in Wales, the Northern fells (Yorkshire & Cumbria) and Scotland. I completed the Munros a quite few years ago and am gradually working my way through other hill lists. I head up to Scotland regularly and have a cottage near Torridon.

Happy to do some low level walks, but prefer to gain some height for the views and exercise. Fairly fit and prefer to keep a steady pace, stopping to look at the scenery and wildlife, but can crack on when needed. Enjoy driving and so distance isn't a problem.

Generally walk at weekends, but can walk mid-week as I am retired, though I do have a few other interests such as D-I-Y and cooking which use some time...

Good sense of direction and can navigate reliably in difficult conditions. Easy going with a sense of humour and enjoy conversation. Like to visit a pub afterwards for a drink.

If you are interesting in joining me then please get in touch.

My Preferred Walk Grades*: 5:6:7:8:9:

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

A bit more about me:

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. Even if I say so myself, I consider my map reading & navigation skills to be excellent. 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;
  • 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 50s, based near Fareham hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi, I live in Hampshire and would like to meet female walking partners to share walks both locally and other parts of the UK. My favorite walking areas are the south west, Lake District and the Cotswolds.

I work full time, so good walks are limited to weekends and holidays.

As well as walking the dog, I cycle to work and play squash, so I'm reasonably fit. I also enjoy music and reading.

I did the Peninine Way many years ago and the Coast to Coast a couple of years ago. I would like to do the West Highland Way in the next few yearsb but in the meantime I'm heading to Dartmoor and the Lake District for some nice day walking.

I haven't done much walking abroad, but I love walking anywhere with lovely countryside.

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

My Message: Hi. I am looking at meeting up with people who are keen to go walking. I don't drive and as such, that mostly limits me to the Peak District and the Lake District (and spending a couple of days (overnight in a hostel) is even better due to time constraints of public transport), but otherwise i can go anywhere. I consider myself reasonably fit and have some ability to read a map but it is not perfect! I get to where i want to go. I like challenging and adventurous walking, however it's not important to me that anyone else does; the company is important! I'm not super-experienced in hill-walking either; but i have done some.
Apart from that i am also looking to walk the Pennine Way (in it's entirety), maybe there is someone else interested in that too?

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'm looking for walking partners primarily in the lakes & Yorkshire dales, 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. Although I'm happy to walk alone, & not keen on walking in overly massive groups, you can't beat good conversation a few laughs & some fantastic views (weather permitting of course).

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

My Message: I am looking to meet fellow walkers, and am happy to travel further afield than Yorkshire. I am fairly fit as I walk my dog every day and volunteer in my local woods, but my mapreading skills need some improvement. I have helped to lead group walks in Spain (where I lived for a while near the border with Portugal) and Portugal. I have lived in Scotland, London, Derbyshire and Essex, and now Yorkshire. Walking-wise, I am happy to try anything - I have walked up Ben Nevis, around South West Scotland, Suffolk, the Peak District, and North Devon. I enjoy drawing and craftwork, and real ale, so a pub is definitely on the agenda during the walk! I would be looking to meet up at weekends as I work during the week. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sue

My Message: Hello, I am interested in sociable walking. I have climbed a few Munros in the past and would like to again but am just happy being outdoors enjoying the sights and sounds. I have a mini dachshund who I like to take with me (most of the time in a backpack!). I live north of Glasgow but am happy to travel for a good walk. Would be nice to hear from others looking for similar!
