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 Elaine. I live in Liverpool and enjoy mountain walking in The Lakes, Snowdonia and Scotland. I've done some European mountain walking including the Mont Blanc trek which was more challenging than I thought it was going to be. I have enjoyed years of solo mountain walking but in recent years I have started walking in groups which has been fun and tends to make walking more memorable.I'm planning on going up to the Lakes for the week inbetween Christmas and New Year and would love to meet up with other solo/group walkers..Im fit, happy and healthy and pretty easy going.I love walking with experienced walkers, kind of takes the stress out of it..Im currently working from home and tend to go walking at weekends to the Lakes, Snowdonia, yorkshire.
I'm looking to meet and walk with experienced mountain walkers, people or a person who is/are fun, easy going, with a bit of a sense of adventure. I'm single and it would be amazing to meet Mr right for me but if that doesnt happen I will gladly settle and be thankfulfor making new walking friends.

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. 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:

  • 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 early 60s, based near Salisbury Plain hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi,
I like to think I'm still in my 30's but my knees tell me otherwise after a days walking..Ha! I enjoy picking up an OS Map and plotting a 12-15 mile circular walk using footpaths, bridleways etc. There are lots of lovely places waiting to be discovered and even better when your walking with someone to share them with. I'm hoping to meet someone that would like to have a walking companion who hopefully doesn't live to far from where I live, fit, young at heart, a good sense of humour and would like to join me in discovering more of this beautiful countryside. I'm available to walk most days as I have taken early retirement and although I do have commitments they can normally be juggled to suit. I also enjoy mountain biking, camping and currently converting a campervan for adventures further afield.

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. I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are pretty good. I can drive and have a car.

I am also interested in:

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

My Message: Just rediscovering my love of walking.
As a single man with a campervan (that doesn't sound in the slightest bit dodgy does it) I love the tranquility of being out in the countryside or on the coast with my muppet dog but I'm getting bored with my own company and would like to find local people to enjoy the outdoors with.
Christmas for me will be bagging a few wainwrights and that would be great with someone to share those fantastic walks

I am a Male Walker, in my early 60s, based near L37 North West hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi my name is Tony I am still in full time work, so i want to make the most any days off. I am easy going and have a positive outlook on life, my glass isn't half full, it's over flowing! 🙂

I love being outdoors in the fresh air.

I have massively neglected my leisure time in recent years, so I'm now looking to do a bit of catching up. I am fit and have been blessed with good health.

I am told I am good company and fun to be with.
If there is a lady out there who enjoys walking/ cycling and non to heavy conversation, who just enjoys the lighter side of life, then Hi, I would love to meet up and set off walking and enjoy our great countryside and coastal paths.

My ideal walk would always end with a bite to eat and go on a twist my arm, a glass of wine, But I can also sit and have a coffee and just enjoy the views, it's just so much nicer to share them with a companion.
I would also love to venture to pastures new and get some use out of my new passport, post
lockdown of course!
Take care and hopefully speak soon 🙂

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

My Message: Hi, I am looking for pleasant, easy going male or female walking friends preferably located in The Midlands, but not limited to this area as I'm more than willing to travel for an adventurous day out. Someone who loves the outdoors and likes to have a gentle chat, someone who can listen as well as talk, who has a good sense of humour and who isn't averse to a bit of adventure. I love to take advantage of the lighter evenings in the Spring and Summer to walk locally (within a 20ish miles radius) during the week. I work a couple of days a week, but can fit in daytime walks on other weekdays and at weekends. Happy to discuss any possibilities. It would be great to hear from you. Best wishes and happy walking, Mo (Maureen).

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

My Message: Hi all,

I'm Lee, a mid-forties male, and I would like to meet new walking friends, male or female to spend time walking and enjoying our wonderful countryside and just being outdoors.

I enjoy both multi-day, long distance paths and less strenuous steady walks too. Oddly enough my walks usually end at a nice country pub or two!
I'm experienced at map reading and navigating, although that doesn't necessarily mean I always finish the walk at the intended time!
Sometimes I'll take a lightweight tent and camp and make it an outdoors weekend or a B&B etc.
My 'bread and butter' walking area is the Settle-Carlisle railway, but I'm equally happy anywhere in the quiet countryside.

I work part-time; so I've some availability on a weekday and also some weekends too. If you want someone to walk with who ( probably!) won't get you lost and has a good sense of humour, that would be me! Do drop me a line..

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

My Message: My absolute best place to be is outdoors walking the hills, dales, valleys... feeling freeee and being amongst the natural world. I've enjoyed walking for many years, and although never been a big mountaineer myself, I have found myself drawn to these dramatic landscapes (Skye, The Hebrides, Glencoe, Western Scotland, The Lakes). I am equally besotted with the other end of the UK being fortunate enough to have lived in the south west region for just over a couple of years and was absolutely blown away by the coast walking and Dartmoor. However being a Yorkshire lass the Dales feature regularly. (I'm also very happy to have an amble around my own neck of the woods with my little dog who is getting a bit too old now for longer hikes).
I'm preety flexible on when and where I can walk and I would like to think I am reasonably fit (though those knees can sometimes play up). I'm afraid I have never learned the skill of map reading (oh dear you would have thought that would have been ticked off by now - really!)so that would be useful if you can map read - although I have several walking books which line my book shelf to support the maps ?!
So if you fancy doing some post lockdown walks and sharing a sarni and a flask en route it would be good to hear from you.

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

My Message: Hi, John here. Hoping to meet like-minded people/person to spend a few hours, or even a few days with.
I enjoy walking in any type of environment, followed by a beer or two after a good slog. I have walked in most National Parks, and walked up a few mountains. My navigational skills are above average and I always plan the route before setting off. With some notice, I am able to reach for the walking boots almost anytime.
I am more than happy to teach navigation skills to anyone.
I have no walking ambitions, I just love to get out and enjoy the view. So, if you wish to spend a couple of hours, or longer with me, please let me know.

I love the outdoors, walking, hiking, climbing, kayaking, coasteering, gorge walking.....the list goes on!
I have a campervan that I have just converted and, as I'm self-employed, I am able to go anywhere, at any time (almost). I like to get away as much as I can.
Care to join me sometime? (Obviously when the 'rona has gone!!).
Just spent 5 days in Matlock which was great. The weather not so, but I got some good walks in. It's just a shame nobody could share the enjoyment with me.

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

My Message: I just love walking and want people to go walking and to socialise with. If we can get a good weather day and a view, all the better. I'd be happy to meet up with men or women for a day's walk, anytime soon. At least it's something we can still do at this time. (However, I'd be keen to meet a man who shares my love of walking)
I've walked the whole of the SWCP, circuit of the Isle of Wight, the South Downs Way and the Cotswold Way. I love walking in the Lake District and would love to do the Coast to Coast. Am also trying to the Wessex Ridgeway in single day trips from home. But I also love a blow on the Marlborough Downs or just an amble along the canal. Tea or a pub meal at the end is a bonus.
I'm retired and don't have any regular commitments except Tuesday mornings and Wednesday evenings at the moment. I play tennis but don't want to appear super fit, just normal for a walker in her early 60's! Am happy to travel to meet up with someone and hope it might be you.

I have just retired and have a desire to do a lot more walking and/or tour the UK. I have recently bought a campervan due to this crazy COVID world! Which will keep myself and others safe.

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

My Message: I'm mainly interested in multi-day walks. I live on the edge of Snowdonia so day walks are usually from my front door.
My professional background is in the performing arts and I still write and direct plays locally.

My Preferred Walk Grades*: 3:4:5:6:7:

My Preferred Walk Areas:
North West Scotland; Southern Scotland; North West England; Yorkshire; The English Midlands; 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. I'm happy to walk in most weathers but do not like snow and ice. 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:

  • 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 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;

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

My Message: I now work part time so have plenty of time to go walking locally and nationally. I am friendly and reliable and like to chat on a walk.

I am looking for people who love walking and are looking for someone to join them. I would like to meet someone who is also interested in walking some of our long distance paths. Sometimes we need a bit of motivation and encouragement and it is always better to have some company and support. Distance and speed are not that important. I equally enjoy local half day walks in the south of England to all day challenges in the mountains. But, it's always nice to end up in a country pub at the end of the day.

I am a reasonable map reader and whilst generally cautious by nature, I am fairly confident in the mountains. I have a car so can travel as necessary. I like to chat about about most things and it would be a bonus if you had a good sense of humour too. I'll try to respond to all responses.

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

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

My Message: I'm hoping to meet a female companion to travel the world for two years plus, taking in national trails. My plan is to start Spring 2021 in the UK on the South West Coast Path, then where ever we choose, COVID permitting, hopefully moving to Europe at a later date. I've been walking in the Lake District, Scotland, Snowdonia and a section of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.
I'm walking some evenings(short), weekdays(medium) and weekends(longer). I am working 2-3 days a week at the moment. My interests are local history, Nature and Photography. As well as Europe I'd like to take in The Pacific Crest Trail in the USA and The Bibbulmun Trail in Australia. All this on a tight budget which I believe is achievable with the use of Workaway and Trusted house sitters.

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

My Message: Hi I'm new to this. I initially started walking on medical advice over a year ago. Since then I have discovered not only health benefit gains but also my mental wellbeing. I found a walking partner to explore the lake district but recently due to worsening medical condition I am now looking for someone to continue my walks in the lake district essentially. I am open to further afield if you can convince me i can. I just prefer familiar territory I know. As a keen novice looking to improve, I hope my new partner will be patient enough to not rush me while at the same time push me to my limits.

I am currently not working due to personal circumstances so I am quite flexible during the week and/or weekends whichever is agreeable. But I hope to return to work soon so my availability may change in time.

I also like to cycle for leisure. If you are keen cyclist, then perhaps we can explore this too.

If anything I said rings any interests, please get in touch. Look forwards to hearing from you. Best wishes Sue

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

My Message: Hi
Im in my 50's - fit enough to handle a good challenge walk (done the Lyke Wake a few times) - ive also walked the Coast to Coast, and would be very happy to do it again some time - but am equally as happy gently strolling through the countryside stopping at the occasional pub:)
I enjoy walking on the North Yorkshire Moors/Coast, the Peak District and the Lake District.
I have a campervan, but am not averse to something a bit more luxurious in the way of a hotel or country inn!!

Im hoping to find a likeminded Lady Walker who would like the occasional weekend away, whatever the weather. - map reading skills useful but not essential!!! If anyone would like a quiet walking and eating getaway in North Yorkshire or the Peak District over Christmas do get in touch!!

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

My Message: Hello, I'm Mark I enjoy walking and discovering places. I occasionally lead walks for my friends or just enjoy a walk on my own. Most walks end up with a pint or a meal. I'm looking to meet someone who enjoys the scenery and wildlife and enjoys a occasional challenge. I'm currently trying to do all the peaks in the Yorkshire Dales over 2000ft and get a few Wainwrights done but not in any great rush.I also do a bit of mountain biking now and then (no mad off road down hill routes). Look forward to hearing from anyone with similar interests. P.s. not having much luck downloading a new photo.

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

My Message: I've been walking for the past 20 years. For a long time because of work commitments and raising my children I didn't have time for long distance walking, but now I have time and am keen to do as many as I can. I'm particularly keen to do the Beacon Way (Brecon Beacons), Coast to coast, and The Two moors way, to start....But I'm open to any long distance walks. I know the days are getting shorter but I'd love to get in a few long walks before the end of the year. If interested, male or female, please contact me. Many thanks Mary

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

My Message: I like to get out in the hills as often as possible but I don't go bagging Munros just to get back and tick it off a list.
I go to enjoy the beauty of our country and take my time and breath in fresh air.
I love Caledonia, the north west highlands to me are the most beautiful place on planet earth and I've traveled extensively.
I don't go climbing or in the snow and ice anymore as I have done in the past.
I don't mind it being cold and fresh though. I always go into the mountains fully prepared, map, compass, waterproofs etc. Just common sense things because anything can happen at any time.
I have done a lot of walking in Scotland but also enjoy the lakes, and the dales etc, doesn't have to be a long or high up walk, pleasurable and fun is what it's all about to me.
Would like to meet others to enjoy a good time out and about, not just on high peaks, any walk can be a good one, it's what you make of it. Finding a nice pub at the end is a bonus too.
I'm going up to the north west highlands from 15th June for two weeks and going to tackle Slioch, An Teallach, Stac Pollaidh, Suilven amongst others. Cape Wrath too.
Before that I hope to be up in the lakes most weekends depending on the weather.

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

My Message: I love walking and being outdoors in all weather. I'm in some walking clubs but these have been suspended at present. The last walk I did with a club was Snowdon and I usually do the A walks which are graded the most difficult. Over the summer I've been walking and cycling (not mountain biking) in France including the Pyrenees. Nevertheless I feel that I will need to build up my fitness again with walking and I'm currently in quarantine.
I want to work up Wainright's coast to coast, hopefully before Christmas. I'm freelance so have some flexibility to walk midweek as well as weekends.
I'm also interested in meeting someone to do local walks with, in between the big walks! I'm looking for walking friends, not for a relationship. I have a couple of friends who enjoy walking but get sick of waiting for people to be available! I'm not good at map reading or using a compass but have just bought a compass and definitely want to improve my navigational skills. Hope to hear from you either locally or to meet at arranged walks 😃
