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

My Message: I've just got back into walking recently and quite often go walking with a male friend but I do miss the chemistry a female companion can bring.

In the past I have walked chunks of the Pennine Way and Offa's Dyke path and also in the Alps and the Pyrenees. In recent times I've started walking again in the Clwydians and the Marches areas but also closer to home on the Wirral. I'm doing walks of around 10 miles at the moment and quite happy with that or a shorter walk.

I have a very quirky cheeky sense of humour and love to make a girl laugh. I like doing lots of other things- cooking, football mad, astronomy, bird watching and love a decent box set. I do need someone to give me a bit of a motivational push though sometimes !

My ideal walking partner would have a good sense of humour and be patient if we got lost. A lady who enjoys the outdoors but enjoys the journey rather than seeing a walk as merely a physical challenge. A warm affectionate type with a good heart. No smokers or heavy drinkers thanks !

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

My Preferred Walk Areas:
North West England; Wales;

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 but do not have one of my own. 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:

  • 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 Manchester hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi. I am 54 years old and from Manchester looking for a female walking partner. Love being outdoors and enjoy walking in the Lakes, Lancashire, Dales, Peak District and further afield. I walk all year round and in most weather. I have hiked a few Munros and would love to get some more climbed if you are up for that! Just as happy to walk river banks, reservoirs etc. and enjoy finishing the day in a country pub.
**Update March 2019. I have booked 2 weeks in Scotland near The Cairngorms in mid May. Hoping to walk some Munros. Would enjoy some female company. Please get in touch if interested. For some reason I am unable to load a picture to the site**

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

My Message: I am looking for a walking friend who may be retired like myself so that he or she is free to walk during the week as well as at weekends. I walk regularly with a number of groups but prefer to walk at my own pace so that I can stop, take photographs and admire views without being left half a mile behind.
Currently my walking tends to be in Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire, Powys, Monmouthshire, Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons. I really enjoy multi-day linear walking and have done the Pennine Way, Wainwright Coast to Coast, Offa's Dyke, West Highland Way, Cotswold Way and Worcestershire Way. This year I will be walking the Cleveland Way with a Derbyshire based friend.
Although my map reading skills are not brilliant I am proficient with satnavs and always carry a paper map and compass.

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 also interested in:

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

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 50s, based near Heysham hoping to meet just Male new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi I'm Sue, 57 years young and looking for a walking friend/companion.

Have been fell walking for about 6 years now and it just gets better and better. Love the outdoors, like a scramble and a challenge rather than ambling along. Usually walk between 9 and 20 miles (ish). I'm free to walk midweek, weekend and evening (now that the days are longer), although walking in the dark wouldn't interest me. Have walked mainly in the Lake District,Yorkshire Dales, a little in Wales and Scotland also but would love to go further afield. I am guilty of not having a lot of map reading skills, basically, all the gear but no idea! I have attended a navigation course but didn't practice it so someone who knows more than me would be a huge advantage. However, I am determined to improve my skills. My hobbies include cycling, travelling, camping

I am a Female Walker, in my mid 40s, based near Nottingham 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 hikes at the weekends. 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!

I am a Female Walker, in my late 40s, based near North Wales 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 over a stroll. 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 arĂȘte, 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 work unsocial hours and three weekends out of four at present (good old nhs) but have plenty of free days midweek.

Since taking early retirement from teaching I now work part time and freelance for AAP's delivering the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme mostly in the Peak District, Lake District, Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons but I'm available for training, supervising and assessing anywhere during the expedition season. When I'm on DofE I'll use my day van and stay on campsites, out of season I'll stay in a Youth Hostel or find an Air BnB near the area I'm exploring. In addition to walking I like visiting interesting places like National Trust properties e.g. Attingham Park near Shrewsbury and exploring different parts of the coast and countryside in the UK, Ireland and abroad. I'm free to walk during school holidays, some week days and most weekends and would like someone to share my time with.

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

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 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.

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

My Message: Hello, I'm David, single, 65 and just retired (summer '12), I live in east Manchester and would like to meet singles or a group to make walking more pleasurable. I'm not that experienced a walker so may have to be gradually more adventurous in my excursions, having said that my last job was very active so I need more than a gentle stroll to the pub! An active stroll to the pub, then, or a tea shop or whatever. My map reading skills are reasonable, I think, and I have a good sense of direction. Anybody reasonably local who would like to join forces with me, please get in touch. Dog owners welcome, though cats preferred!

My Message: I`m a 55 year old female (physically but mentally somewhat younger!) looking for a walking buddy in Herefordshire. I enjoy walks in the Black Mountains, Brecons, Forest of Dean and Wye Valley. At the moment I can only do weekends but after the end of March will have some weekdays free too. I like hill and mountain walking but feel a bit nervous going alone without a companion to stop me getting lost or falling off a mountain! Enjoy a good chat and a laugh? Come and get lost with me!

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

My Message: No messages since I registered anyone out there in West or East Sussex want to go 4 a walk!! Hi I am 55 and love to walk. My adorable Labrador Alfie my constant walking buddy is now 12 and unable to cope with distance or challenging terrain. Married with two college age boys and hard working husband. Live only 5 minutes stroll from the English Channel and the back drop of the South Downs with its extensive walking path routes. I travel to Austria almost every year to hike/walk whilst my husband finds the road cycling routes. I work part time with flexible hours. I am looking for female walking buddies for walking all levels weekdays and/or weekends close to home or further afield. I would like to conquer the West Country and South Wales Coastal Paths. I am interested in architecture, flora and fauna, wildlife and also any walking routes that are themed. I am quite a brisk walker but like to stop and take in my surrounding. I look forward to meeting you........... Recently obtained NNAS Bronze Certificate.

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

My Message: Hi there!
New Years Resolution - more walking! I like to get out at least one day of the weekend, for a full days walk if possible. My average walk is around 10 miles, but happy to go for less or more depending on season and conditions. Would like to do a distance path this summer, maybe the Anglesey Coastal Path or the Dales Way. Have previously walked the Great Glen Way and sections of the Coast to Coast and Peninne Way...lets see where the path takes us!

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

My Message: I'm based in S Bucks but love the mountains and hills: Peaks, Dartmoor, Beacons, Shropshire hills, mid-Wales, N and S Downs. I can get to them all in no more than three hours, have a great day's walking, and home again - as long as I'm out of the car for more than I'm in it, that's OK.

If you'd like to meet for a walk in these or any other (not too flat) regions, and are looking for friendship and company, I'd love to hear from you.

I've recently (2017) taken to my tent again after many years, so a bike ride with tent (and maybe skis) turns into a splendid adventure. The Lakes, Snowdonia, and Scotland are the real draws though, especially in winter conditions. I've been up to the far NW and the W and Central Highlands for the last few years and love them. And the Alps of course, and Arctic Norway!

I like mountains and hills. I walk among them and try to ski (downhill and touring) them, and recently mountain bike through them to save my legs when getting to the more remote ones. Try imagining the peaks and valleys under a kilometre of ice shaping the Lakes or Highlands into the dramatic wild places they can be today!

Until recently, I worked right in the middle of London which was enjoyable and different; I live at the end of a Tube line with a usually-muddy field-and-woods walk to my local station.

But I've made the move (end 2015) to working from home, in my own time, so I'm freed from the weekends-only bids for the outdoors.

Oh, and my name is Robert.
