I am a Female Walker, in my early 40s, based near Dumfriesshire hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi
I have just turned 40 this year, I am married with 3 kids. I love being active outdoors. I have climbed 25 munros so far and looking for other people to hike with rather than doing the harder climbs on my own as my navigation skills aren't the best! Happy to drive long distances in search of the perfect adventure trip. Nothing better than the achievement of getting to the top of a mountain and then camping watching the sunset with a drink in hand afterwards! If your female and also looking for some company on your next small or big walking/hiking trip adventure drop me a message.

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

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

A bit more about me:

I quite enjoy Scrambling & Edges but don't like too much exposure. 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. 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:

  • 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;
  • Mountain Biking
  • Skiing and/or Snowboarding

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 early 60s, based near Lincoln hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi my name is Anne. I am in my early 60's 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...

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

My Message: Hi, I'm Chris, from Manchester, now exiled in Buxton! Married happily, for nigh on 30 years, and living with the wife and Jim the dog. Made redundant last year after some 25 years at IBM but have plans to get back to work eventually. For now, I'm enjoying my time off. We both (the wife and I) have a passion for the countryside, Scotland and the Peak District in particular. Unfortunately due to health issues my wife is now unable to do much walking - aside from pottering around the villages etc. Whilst I'm certainly no major league trekker myself, I am fond of a brisk stroll around the hills and valleys of the peaks whenever I can, taking in the air, views and fascinating archaeological sites. Be nice to have someone to chat with along the way, so, I'm looking for someone, male/female, any age, in a similar position, who may be up for the occasional (none too arduous) stroll and fancies sharing their own favourite walks with another interested party? Weekdays or weekends, meet there, arrange pickup, whatever, I'm flexible on all that stuff. Drop me a line if interested, thanks.

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'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 and have a car.

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

My Message: I live South of 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 as well as mountain tops. I walk to chill and enjoy what's there, not to just 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. I'm chilled, have a quick wit and great sense of humour. My other interests are landscape photography, art, city breaks and the theatre. I'm all but vegan ( you don't have to be) and a reasonable cook though do enjoy dining out too. If you enjoy your walking and are interested in joining me, get in touch.

Chris

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

My Message: 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 live in Norfolk (although a major change in my life is making me consider moving away, maybe you could convince me?) 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 should also mention that a fantasy of mine is to go off the beaten track and be naughty in nature with someone.

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 early 40s, based near Oakham, Rutland hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi everyone, I would love to meet up with other people to walk - virtually anywhere. I particularly love hill-walking (Scotland, Lakes and Snowdonia my favourite) and have bagged some 3000fters, but am keen to walk anywhere. Friends and family are just not hikers. Even my dog is ageing so much that a short walk around the park will satisfy him (he stays at home/in the car when I walk).

I love camping, hiking in beautiful scenery, and would love some company. I have a car and am happy to travel, although of course if you are closer to me meeting up for a day hike will be easier. With a busy work schedule, I am generally a weekend walker but will take time off when I get a walking opportunity that is too good to miss.

My Message: Hello. I'm an athletic and active 59 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, Machu Picchu etc. but still loads to see. It would be great to explore with a like minded male/female companion or any groups. I'm based in Saltaire near Bradford 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...

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 have enjoyed hill walking since my childhood - It gives me a sense of freedom, space and challenge. I feel that it helps me refuel my inner strength to deal with anything during the working week. I moved up to Bishop Auckland in 2010 because of my love of the scenery. I walked the Pennine Way 30+ years ago and always enjoy revisiting bits of it. More recently I've completed the Dales Way, WHW, Great Glen Way, Dava Way,C2C,Offa's Dyke Path & Isaac's Tea Trail. I enjoy regular walking in the Lakes, Yorkshire Dales, Scottish Highlands, the Borders and Northumberland with a fantastic local fell walking club and am free many weekends and during the school holiday times.I am a musician who teaches in County Durham schools and at the Sage Gateshead. Looking forward to hearing from you. Happy 2020!! Andy

Enjoying life and meeting people with a love for the outdoors is my aim so if interested gis a shout.

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

My Message: I like to get out and enjoy some seclusion, to take in the surroundings for a change of pace, without the clamour and rush of town life. Quite happy to walk anywhere, sometimes with the whippet, sometimes not. Walking parties of two, threes or fours are my kind of thing, and I venture out on my own a little as well.
If I can get a bit of photography in of the scenery that's great, but not essential. Beautiful scenery and weather are appreciated, but being out is just as important. At the moment building up fitness again after a quiet period and crocking an ankle.

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 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:

  • 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;

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

Have walked Lakes and Scottish mountains in the past(a while ago) Love Skye! Blue moons and pink sunrises, sigh! Look forward to hearing from anyone interested in helping this lass get out there. P.

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

My Message: Hello, I love the outdoors, nature, birdwatching and walking. I'm a bit of an eco warrior and try to contribute to conservation in my own small way. I am pretty fit and sometimes have too much energy for my own good. I jog a few miles each week, I'm on a fitness program at a gym and I do Pilates. I also like swimming but only really in the sea or in open water. I have a little Romahome campervan and I spent a lot of time away in it this summer. I'd like to meet a like-minded gentleman who enjoys a walk and good conversation. If you like to dive into a tea shop at the end of a walk, that's even better! I'm happy with about 7 miles a day. Over 10 miles is a bit far - but that's not to say I would rule longer distances out. My other interests are art and visiting galleries, volunteering for my local wildlife trust, beekeeping and lots of other things, too many to list here.

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

My Message: Hiya, I'm Lynn alias 'Miss Outdoorsy' as staying at home drives me up the walls! I like anything outdoors, love adventure & travel & my passion is mountains. I love the ridge & scrambling routes & have done Crib Goch, Snowdon, Striding Edge & Swirral Edge, Sharp Edge in Lakes to name a few. I've done a lot of walking in Peaks, Snowdonia, Lakes, Brecons, Yorkshire Dales & love them all. I'm just as happy with a hike in the Peaks as scrambling up Sharp Edge. I live near Chesterfield so Peaks & Yorkshire Dales are easy for me to get to but I don't mind travelling. Im very easy going with good sense of humour & like the well deserved stop in the pub at the end of the walk! Well I'm Scottish after all! Would love to hear from you for hiking soon.

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

My Message: Hi I'm Karen. I'm single and now that I am retired I have a lot more time to go walking just for an afternoon or a day (week days and weekends) or for weeks.

I'd like to meet up with other walkers to continue to do the SW Coast Path (I have done form Poole to nearly Plymouth and am happy to do other bits in any order), Offa's Dyke, the Coast to Coast or West Highland Way from 2017 onwards.

I've walked the Thames Path from my home as I live on the Wiltshire / Gloucestershire borders, as well as most of my local walks and many more all over the UK - on my own and many in groups; always much more fun and interesting. I have a car and am happy to travel and go for walks all over the UK and abroad; I will tackle hills; have done Snowdon and other fairly high spots like the Jurassic Coast but my knees now really prefer fewer or shorter or less steep climbs. I love watching for wildlife along the way and would love to share the scenery and enjoyment with male or female friends, and maybe meet that special man here. Its great to have a bit of a laugh and a chat along the way, especially if interspersed with stop offs for a cuppa or at a pub.

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

My Message: Hi,
I'm Catherine, 40 from Preston. I have done quite a lot of walking, mainly in the Lakes and North Wales but other areas too.I would like to do more in Scotland. I have also done some treks abroad. I have previously walked a lot with my parents but they are getting past the long and high stuff now. Also I met a great walking partner on here about 8 years ago but she has moved abroad for work! I'm now struggling to get out walking as I don't want to go by myself. I love anything outdoors, pretty much any weather. I love camping and a good pint after a walk. I'm looking for people aged 35-48 who would like to go on day walks to begin with to see how we get on. Anyway, drop me a line if you'd like to make contact and get out walking. Thanks

I am a Male Walker, in my late 30s, based near Wirral hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I'm an adventurous hiker, walking long distances but also chill out shorter strolls in North Wales, Peak District and Lake District. I'm wishing to meet a female walker friend maybe more who enjoys long walks and which we can enjoy the beautiful countryside and mountains of Britain. I'm currently after Marilyn's in the UK, walking usually on weekends but have a week in the Lake District coming up in late September. If you would like a week of walking please contact me.

I'm active away from walking being a keen cyclist, I enjoy history and visiting places of interest. I'm very fit, having long legs means I cover distances quicker than most but also love a good scramble and prefer clear weather as I enjoy the views from a good summit.

I've climbed Mt Snowdon, Carnedd Llewelyn, Pen yr Ole Wen, hills of Church Stratton Shropshire and hope to doing some long walks in Lake District September 2019. Some female company would be preferred so we both can enjoy some stunning scenery.

If interested please message me. I'm a keen walker who enjoys the outdoors and would like to share it with someone.

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.

My Message: Hiya My name is Chris,
Looking forward to meeting fellow walkers for some every day fresh air and company. I am a bubbly chatty out going kind of person who enjoys the simple things in life. Love being outdoors walking and meeting new people.
I am looking to hopefully walk quite local but am also willing to travel as long as not too far. I enjoy time away for walking if further afield.
I am only looking for company as I have a partner of 35 years pus but he is not interested in walking.
Unfortunately I am unable to map read but I have a good sence of direction and I do know a lot of walks in different places ( can't promise I wont get anyone lost though )
Hope to meet likeminded people who also would like to walk be it in a group or just a small number.
