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

My Message: Hello!
I'm 60 and a self confessed walkaholic! It's really nice to think there are others who share my love of connecting with the natural world in a way that feeds the heart and soul. In recent years, I have done several long distance walks over 2-6 weeks. This is the way I most enjoy walking. It's good to have a destination but the journey and the lovely people you meet along the way are much more important to me. One of the reasons I love long distance walking is having the freedom to walk as long as it's enjoyable and safe rather than feeling I have to reach a particular point on the map each day. I generally walk about 10 miles a day depending on the terrain, and make it possible with a mix of wild and tame camping as well as the odd night in civilisation.
Over the last year, I haven't been for an adventure because I've had a beautiful Ukrainian family living with me. They now have their own home so I'm ready to walk again.🥾 Normally I walk alone and enjoy the peace and stillness that lone walking brings. I'm now beginning to think that it would be sensible to have a buddy to walk with. When I walk alone, I rarely get lost but when walking with friends, we frequently get lost because we're talking so much. :) Therefore I am hoping to find a confident map reader to walk with!
Quite recently I have been widowed and am now looking to embrace life and all the good things it has to offer. I work part time and my hours are flexible making it quite easy to go for a walk. I would love to hear from you if your love of walking in wild places resonates with mine.

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

I am not actively looking for anyone other than a new walking companion but if that right person came along . . .

I am a Female Walker, in my early 60s, 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 too 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.
In the past I did the West Highland Way three times, The Great Glen Way once. Nowadays I'm a lot slower but I find that a good thing as it means I'm out in the green stuff longer.
I'm easy going, enjoy new challenges, and always up for a laugh, life's too short to be too serious !!!
I like to play guitar, love nature, wildlife, taking photos, and enjoy the simple pleasures in life.
If you fancy some company on a walk please get in touch.

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 and will bring my own. If pushed, I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are rather poor at best. I can drive and have my own Campervan/Motorhome.

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 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 2019 I completed Hadrians Wall, and In 2018 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 Male Walker, in my late 40s, based near Shrewsbury hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I have recently completed the West Highland Way, an amazing experience in spite of the midges. I also like short strolls along the local river or up a local hill. So in terms of making walking friends I am pretty flexible when it comes to types of walks.

I also enjoy overseas travel, I have recently returned from trip with a vehicle to Moroccan Sahara.

As you may have noticed, I ticked the box to say that I am looking for walking friends but I would be happy if someone special came along. If you think you might be that'someone special' then I'm happy to share a bit more about myself.

I hope to hear from you soon.

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

My Message: Hello, I'm David, I'm 64 and widowed. Life is for living and I'm not ready to just sit back in a comfortable armchair having spent a number of years bringing up a young family alone. I'm hoping to make new friends for adventures and challenges,both here in the UK and overseas. I want to grab life for myself and start exploring the great outdoors. I'm fit and love being outdoors in all weathers, either walking or running. There aren't many hills in Hertfordshire so I'm happy to travel, although I'm also interested in more local walks across fields, bridleways and canal footpaths, especially if there is the incentive of coffee and cake. I'm generally a novice walker although have previously walked in the Peak District, Yorkshire, The Lake District and Scotland. My kids say they have the local care home on speed dial so I'm hoping to be rescued.

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

My Message: Hello. I'm an athletic and active 62 yr old male (who still thinks he's 25). I retired from policing and all those years of walking the beat. I've been back packing around the world, done Kilimanjaro, Everest Base Camp, Machu Picchu etc. but still loads to see. It would be great to explore with a like minded female companion or any groups. I'm based in Briarfield near Burnley but, as a part time pensioner and Sports Coach (!) I've got time, spontaneity, solvency and inclination to bag those peaks. So do get in touch...

Box No: 102098

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

My Message: I live close to the Peak District. I know it really well and love it, but equally love walking in Wales, The Lakes, Yorkshire, Northumbria and other parts too. I first got the walking bug whilst doing a charity walk in Snowdonia in 1998 (Crib Goch at 4 a.m.). I'm happy walking on hilltops and along valleys, canals, rivers and dales. I walk to chill and enjoy what's there and around me, not to race to the end. What would make my day complete though is some good company to share the views, some good conversation (serious or silly), laughter and after walk refreshments or a meal. I'm just into my 70's but am fit and younger in appearance and character. I can get along with most people of all ages. I generally like to walk between 5-15 miles I'm chilled, have a quick wit and great sense of humour. I drive and don't see anywhere on the mainland as too far. My other interests are landscape photography, art, city breaks and the theatre to mention a few but always happy to try something new. If you enjoy your walking and are interested in joining me, do please get in touch.

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

My Message: I'm 58 and live near Gower/Swansea and would love to meet new walking companions as most of my friends aren't interested and the ones who are, have other demands on their time.
Unfortunately, due to concerns around Covid I haven't managed to go walking, or get out and about in general, as much as I would like in the last couple of years. I've just started again, weather permitting, although I'm not particularly fond of walking alone, but I have to rebuild my fitness and stamina. If I was lucky enough to meet someone local to me then I envisage perhaps doing a few relatively easy walks around Gower/Pembrokeshire initially and then tackling some steeper hills and mountains. I dislike winter intensely but am quite able to go walking in cold conditions (a few Western Canadian winters toughened me up in that regard).
I work full-time and am also doing an OU degree so until the lighter evenings return I'm tied to weekends, mainly in South/West/Mid Wales. Once spring arrives, however, I'd be happy to take leave from work to walk locally or further afield. I've been walking and camping in the Canadian Rockies, plus various N American National Parks, several times and I want to go back to Dartmoor and N Devon, Ireland and the Lake District in the coming years. I'd also like to hike in Scotland, Norway eg Lofoten Islands and the Grand Canyon and definitely want to visit Cuba someday.
I'm a bit of a contradiction really, being an introverted extrovert; however, I can get along with most people and hold my own on various subjects. I've noticed that there are many donkeys missing hind legs in my vicinity although I do also enjoy peace and quiet and just being aware of and contemplating nature. I love dogs, horses and most other animals, and my interests include music, reading, camping, travelling, summer nights in beer gardens, comedy clubs, spirituality, being by the sea, swimming, geography, history, politics and volunteering. I'm a car owner/driver and am happy to travel across the UK and Ireland. I often think about sea swimming but that's as far as I've got, so if you're into that then all the better!

I am a Female Walker, in my early 70s, 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'm easy going and have a soh - semi-retired so can walk in the week as well as at week-ends. I usually walk with groups, friends or alone to practice navigation (which I am reasonable at). I am a reasonably fit 'plodder' and hillwalking is my main interest - its always better to share adventures with likeminded others. I moved to the Yorkshire dales five years ago and am enjoying having some great walking on the doorstep. I've walked extensively in Scotland, Lake District, North Wales and Europe. I'm seeking walking buddies who might be interested in doing long distance paths here or abroad and/or hillwalking in the Yorkshire Dales, Lake District, Northumberland or Scotland. I'm used to driving to walk locations.

I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are pretty good. I can drive and have my own Campervan/Motorhome.

Self Taught

I am also interested in:

  • Wild Camping - Camping out in the wilds well away from anyone & any facilities;
  • 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 Female Walker, in my early 60s, based near London hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I live in London, but have done lots of long distance path walking and a fair bit of mountain walking in Scotland, Arran, Cairngorms, Mull... I would love to explore more of the countryside, mostly the northern half of the country and Ireland, which I'm sorry to say I've never been to!

I work part-time as a bicycle instructor, helping people to be confident riding on the road. I'm fairly flexible about when I can go away, because I pick my own hours :-).

Don't be put off by the fact that I live in London! I can travel!!
And of course there are some lovely walks around London.

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. I do not have my own vehicle but can borrow or rent one.

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;
  • Road Cycling

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

My Message: Hi, I'm Dave and I live on the Wirral and generally walk in North Wales, the Northern fells (Yorkshire & Cumbria) and Scotland. I completed the Munros a few years ago and am slowly working my way through some other hill lists. I head up to Scotland regularly and am keen on exploring the many Scottish islands.

Happy to do low level walks, but prefer to gain some height for the views and exercise. Fairly fit and like to keep a steady pace, stopping to look at the scenery and wildlife. I do a lot of driving so don't mind traveling to meet up for walks.

Retired so can walk on any day of the week especially if the weather is good,but do spend some time on other hobbies like DIY, cooking and rock climbing.

Good sense of direction and generally can navigate reliably.
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.

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

My Message: Hi, I lived just outside the Lake District for over thirty years and walked the fells quite a lot there. I am now based in Lancaster, following retirement and would love to get to know Lancashire better. During lockdown (1) I bought an e bike and and have enjoyed exploring both the coast and the Forest and Trough of Bowland, my longest ride so far is about 75km.

As I am now retired I am free to walk in the week as well as at weekends. Most of the walking I have done is probably in the Lakes although I have friends with a base in Huddersfield and enjoy the Yorkshire moors. Recently returned from a family holiday in the Peak District I also discovered the wonderful landscape of north Staffs and Derbys where I enjoyed several good walks, taking in a couple of Peaks.

In 2019 I was lucky to be able to walk in the Andes whilst visiting family in Colombia, I have also walked in the Peruvian Andes when visiting Machu Picchu. In Europe I walked the Lycian Way in Turkey.

I do prefer walking in company, although not really a fan of large groups and am happy to walk with either male or female companions.
I consider myself reasonably fit but do see walking as a pleasurable activity, as opposed to a 'route march'.

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

Fine with me, I've got waterproofs. 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 a Male Walker, in my mid 60s, based near Western Beacons hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi my name is Roger and I live near the Western Brecon Beacons. Since taking early retirement from teaching I now work freelance delivering the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme and I'm available for training, supervising and assessing DofE groups 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 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.

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 the long distance paths across the country. 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 am a Male Walker, in my early 50s, based near Lincoln hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi. I'm semi retired and live near Lincoln. I love the outdoors and love to spend my time walking, running and even gardening. Anything to be outside. I do most of my walking on the Lincolnshire Wolds and in the Peak District, but would like to explore more. I have also walked in the Lakes, Wales and Scotland. My partner is not really interested in my love of walking and not that keen on the great outdoors. I do a lot of walking on my own but would enjoy some company, ideally someone who loves being outdoors like me and who doesn't mind a bit of weather. My work pattern varies so I can be free mid week and weekends too.

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

My Message: Hi all,

I'm a late-forties male, and I would like to meet a new female walking partner and also friends either male or female. Time spent walking and enjoying our wonderful countryside just being outdoors is even better with the right person.

I enjoy all forms of walking, multi-day, long distance paths and less strenuous steady day walks too. Oddly enough my walks usually end at a nice country pub or two! Can't think why...There is nothing nicer than a lovely pub at the end of a great days walking.
I'm experienced at map reading and navigating and I enjoy the planning of walks on both traditional paper maps and also using GPS.
Sometimes I'll take a lightweight tent and camp and make it an outdoors weekend or stay in a B&B when exploring new areas.
My 'bread and butter' walking area is Yorkshire but I'm equally happy anywhere in the countryside.

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

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

My Message: Dear fellow walkers
I'm a retired teacher living in Wharfedale hoping to meet like-minded individual(s) who share my passion for the countryside and the environment and would like a walking companion for the odd day out to the Dales initially.
I'm an experienced fell-walker and did MLC part 1 some time ago and certainly prefer maps to satnavs. However I also enjoy more modest valley walks (12-15 miles) and did the Offas Dyke path a few years ago.
I'm also a musician (singer and composer),keen gardener, environmentalist (CAT member), and amateur foraging mycologist who enjoys debate and discussion as well as silent observation of birds and wildlife when the time is right!
I have an electric car, largely solar powered and live 5 minutes walk from Menston station.
Available this Saturday 6th August if there's anyone who would like to join me!
