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 - I'm spending the weekend in the Lakes, staying over in Bowness - on Saturday I'll will be walking along the "far" side of Windermere before looping back round and heading to Far Sawrey for a late lunch at The Cuckoo Brow - feel free to shout up if you'd like to join me ***

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

A bit more about me:

I really don't like Scrambling & Edges - they are defintely not for me. 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. 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:

  • Gardening/gardens, Somewhere Nice For A Drink, And Something To Eat After A 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 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

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.

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.

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!'

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.

I love to walk anywhere and have my own car so travel is not really an issue. Due to work commitments I do most of my walking at the weekends or during holiday periods. I love the outdoors, wildlife and would like to meet a walking companion who enjoys taking in the scenery whilst having a laugh along the way and possibly relaxing in a nice country pub at the end of the day. If this sounds like you I would love to hear from you.

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

My Preferred Walk Areas:
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 really don't like Scrambling & Edges - they are defintely not for me. 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. 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;
  • 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 70s, based near Beckfoot Near Silloth, Cumbria hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Kindred spirits who like the great outdoors have a laugh and can chat about anything and everything but shy doesn't bother me either. I really prefer the Lake District, have loved walking in it for years and can't get enough of it. I have walked everywhere in the Lakes but have also walked in Scotland and the Mourne mountains in N. Ireland. I can go walking on any day of the week at any time barring other appointments. I am 70 but still very fit, retired from first of all a career in the Navy where I served in submarines and after that a career in the police. I take my camera everywhere with me and put the pictures taken on my FB page for my friends home and abroad to enjoy. My Black Labrador Sweep goes everywhere with me, he is 12 now and slowing down but we all go there. I would be more than happy to answer any questions that anyone has and I will answer them honestly. Thank you for reading my profile.

When it comes to Scrambling & Edges I'm OK with the occasional edge or scramble but don't go looking for it. I'm happy to walk in all weathers - sunshine, snow, hail, wind & rain - bring it on. I like walking with dogs and will bring my own. 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 also interested in:

  • Wild Camping - Camping out in the wilds well away from anyone & any facilities;

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.

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 am also interested in:

  • Wild Camping - Camping out in the wilds well away from anyone & any facilities;

My Message: Hi my name is Anne. I am 60 looking for walking companions for either day/weekend/week walks. I have just retired and have a desire to do a lot more walking and/or tour the UK perhaps in a camper van or narrowboat walking and exploring. 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 look forward to hearing from you...

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

My Message: Hi There, I'm looking to meet new people/friends to go on some nice walks or camping/kayaking adventures with in the UK or abroad. I live in London but grew up in the country and I'm struggling to find people that love the outdoors and escaping the city as much as I do, or that don't have other responsibilities. I am happy hiking all day or multi day hikes, I also love a bit of kayaking, bouldering, pretty much anything that burns a bit of energy and I am more than happy to drive wherever for a nice walk and chat. If you fancy a walk or a little adventure I would love to hear from you!

Like to do most of my walking in the lakes, but also enjoy wales, and have done quite a bit in the Peak District.
I'm currently past the half way mark on the wainwrights, but not doing them in a fanatical way, prefer to enjoy the walk and views.

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

My Message: Hi, I live in Glasgow, with my border collie Rannoch, not 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.
I've done the West Highland Way three times, The Great Glen Way once and would love to try some of our other long distance national trails, but, I'm also happy to do day walks.
I'm easy going, enjoy new challenges, and always up for a laugh, life's too short to be too serious !!!
I love nature and wildlife, love taking photos, and enjoy the simple pleasures in life.
If you fancy some company on a walk please get in touch.

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.

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