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 all weathers - sunshine, snow, hail, wind & rain - bring it on. 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 a car.

I am also interested in:

  • Camping on Campsites - Camping where there is a shop, toilets, showers & possibly a pub;

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 late 40s, based near Beaconsfield hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi, I am looking for new friends to explore the UK with, as I've exhausted(literally !!) my current friends, many of whom prefer short walks. During this corona lockdown I've averaged 30 miles a week - better than baking any day. My job is cabin crew, often I have 3 days off during the week with the occasional weekend. I especially love coastal walks, but am good with any terrain, just happy to be walking. I'd like to do more multi day hikes, no problem camping or staying in BnBs. I've carried a big back pack but also had it transported. I've hiked the Anna Purna Circuit and part of he Camino de Santiago, always looking for new adventures.

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 prefer warm, dry & sunny weather but can cope with the odd shower. 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:

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

My Message: Hi, I'm a keen walker living in the South West, whilst I am comfortable walking alone, it get's boring and would love to have someone to share the experience with. Mainly I walk in the South West area, but love the mountains when I can get away. I also regularly go on Trekking holidays abroad and have done three treks in Nepal over the last 5 years (Everest Base Camp, Annapurna, and Kanchenjunga base camp). However, I am more than happy with a gentle stroll across Dartmoor as well. I am recently retired and looking forward to ticking off some 'bucketlist' walks. England Coast to Coast, South West Coast Path to name a couple in the UK, but also would love to do the Camino De Santiago. When not out walking I am a keen theatre goer and also an amateur actor. Also have a love of music.
I'm flexible when and where I can walk and have a bit of an adventurous streak so am generally up for a bit of a challenge. What I'm missing is having people to share walking with. I know there are people out there, just haven't found them yet!

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. I have recently bought a campervan due to this crazy COVID world! Which will keep myself and others safe. 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 60s, based near Llanfyllin, hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi
I'm Dan 69 years old, semi retired and looking for a walking friend,
Have a P.L.B. but they do not make very good walking companions, I do any kind of walks from short walks published by the R.S.P.B.and other organisations, or cut out of magazines by friends, to 8 to 10 mile circular walks, I don't do national trails or peak bagging,
I like remote mountain walks and moorland walks, I use off the peg circular walks mostly, but like to plan and research my own walks as well, I like to follow rivers across open moorland to their source My other interests are driving on mountain passes, train trips and visiting museums,.

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 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 late 40s, based near London hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hello! My name is Umesh and I am keen to find someone to explore hiking trails with over, in particular, over the next few months given we can't travel overseas.

I'm a keen hiker and amateur mountaineer (last year I climbed Mont Blanc and Kili) but really just enjoy getting out into nature and it doesn't have to be too strenuous. When we are allowed, I'd ideally like to do a bit more exploring in the Lakes and perhaps further afield in Scotland and Wales.

I'm not working at the moment so have plenty of time on my hands although that could change. I'm currently studying for my WSET level 3 wine course so am a bit tied up with that over the next few weeks but looking for some adventures in July!

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

My Message: I am a Female Walker, 50, based near Chester, but working near London. My walking friend and partner has passed away and I am hoping to meet either Male and Female new friend (s) to go walking with. When weather is bad on the hills, the alternative coastal walks combined with occasional bird watching (Norfolk, North Devon, Pembrokshire,…) is also an option.
I'm looking for walks about 6 to 9 hours per day, all year round. I've climbed Mont Blanc and Matterhorn in the past, so happy with any terrain. I am now too old and wise to still enjoy walking in fog and howling winds though. I like remote mountain walks and moorland walks and don't enjoy walking with crowds.
I can read maps but not enough practice for finding my way out with GPS or compass/map in fog.
I can drive but as I work in the south of England, I've been lucky that so far to have a friend who could pick me up from a train station near the walks location (Chester, Penrith, Kendal, York,…) and drive me to the walks and hotels.
I would not be walking with someone with a dog, or a party of more than 3, as it scares the wild-life which is a collateral interest of the walks. Age not a problem, I have a variety of interests and most importantly I am a good listener & interested in other peoples' interests as I enjoy learning.I am easy to get on with and certainly not into 'competetive' walking. I just love to get out and enjoy the view.
I don't expect or want to walk at the same pace as my companion, as I enjoy the solitary aspect of the walks, but to keep in the visual range but have stops and breaks together.

I stay in hotels, pub and B&B to enjoy the rest after the walk. I'd love to have again a companion again with whom I can a general culture conversation.
I'm working, so can rarely do more than Friday lunch time until Sunday evening. I need at least 3 week notice to book the week end and I'm happy to decide in the last days where to go depending on the weather.

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

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 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 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 am a senior member of the Army Cadet Force and, as such, have a good knowledge of navigation and am willing to teach anyone who wants to learn. I like to get away as much as I can.
Care to join me sometime? (Obviously when the 'rona has gone!!).

I am a Female Walker, in my early 20s, based near Bury hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hello,
I am interested in meeting male or female friends to go walking with, especially now the warmer weather is approaching (provided that this lockdown eventually ends). I am based in Lancashire however I can drive and have a car so I am willing to go further afield. I am a bit out of practise with walking very long distances as my friends are not the hiking-types so I've struggled to find people to go with me in the past. However, I would really like to challenge myself and I hope to meet like minded people. I have a springer spaniel who would be joining me.

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

My Preferred Walk Areas:
North West Scotland; North East Scotland; Southern Scotland; North East England; North West England; Yorkshire; The English Midlands; Wales; East Anglia; The Heart of England; South East England; South West England; Ulster (Uladh), Ireland Connacht, Ireland; Leinster (Laighin), Ireland; Munster (Am Mhumhain), Ireland;

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 prefer warm, dry & sunny weather but can cope with the odd shower. 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 a car.

I am also interested in:

  • Mountain Biking

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

My Message: I'm interested in meeting fellow walking enthusiasts who are fun and don't take things too seriously, who enjoy a bit of banter whilst taking in our beautiful countryside.

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

My Message: Hi
I'm in my early 60's, reasonably fit and active, I play squash and go running a couple of times a week.I love my job as a nurse/counsellor and when I have free time I like to be outdoors. I'm as happy on long walks as I am climbing a mountain,or on the coastline. I'm not competitive these days but still want to feel a sense of achievement and stretch myself.I've explored many areas in the UK. Last year I did the Welsh 3 peaks ( over several days) with my daughter. A couple of years ago I discovered Bulgaria with some friends and am going back this year to do some walks in the Piril range.I'm looking to meet new people,for new experiences, good conversation,fun and friendship.

I am a Male Walker, in my late 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 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. While 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.

I am a Male Walker, in my early 60s, based near Wa11 hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hello to everyone, I've been a hill and mountain walker for many years now. In my early 60s, I am inclined to sit on a comfortable rock and watch the world go by. During a walk on a nice day. I backed packed round the world with a friend just a few years ago and would like to do it again in the not to distant future.

I would like to meet females for new adventures. I'm happy to do any grade of walk. From half a day on the flat to a couple of days backpacking in the hills. Camping B+Bs Pubs or Hotels, i don't mind. I can do weekdays and weekends. Tried the photo, says it was OK but it does not seem to have appeared!

Many thanks, hope to hear from you.

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

My Message: I'm a recently retired 61 year old living in the Staffordshire Moorlands. I moved here when I retired as I enjoy walking in the Peak District so much but also enjoy walking in other areas. Location isn't too important as I am prepared to travel to meet for a walk.

I am fit and competent and enjoy a challenging walk or an easy walk and I like to take in the views whichever. I am open to any level of walk as it's sometimes good to just get out and it's always good to find a good pub or cafe at the end. As well as walking I also enjoy running and cycling although I can just enjoy being outdoors watching and listening. It's the simple things in life that appeal to me most.

As much as I enjoy the outdoors it is by no means everything to me. I enjoy listening to a lot of music having a very broad taste and especially like live music but not in big venues. I also enjoy cinema and theatre or just having a chat in a café or pub with friends.

It would be great to share the outdoors and other things with a like minded woman though I have a very inquisitive mind and I'd be more than happy to be introduced to new interests.

My boring details are I'm single with no children or any other ties. I'm 5'8" and slim/average build.

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

My Message: I would love to hear from local walkers/hikers.

Hi, I'm a happy, independent woman. I'm slim and fit and intend to stay that way!. I love driving particularly on the continent and I am happy to travel in the UK in search of a good walk. I'm a keen walker with many other interests including travel (preferably off the beaten track). I recently visited Siberia and China and got the 'bug' for more far-flung places. I have walked in Southern France and Nothern Spain.
La Gomera, a couple of years ago, was a great location to walk/hike in. As was the beautiful island of Crete last year. However, there are still plenty of stunning places in our own country I have yet to explore. I particularly love walking in Snowdonia. I did Snowdon via Crib Goch a while ago and very much enjoyed that experience. Also the magestic,Tryfan is a favourite. But in my book, any walk, long or short hard or not so, in congenial company, is a walk well worth doing.

I would love to hear from male fellow walkers who enjoy the great outdoors, a laugh along the way and of course, well earned pint after!

Christine.

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

My Message: Greetings fellow walkers *waves*
I got into walking proper about 6 years ago and never looked back! I generally walk at the weekends unless I have time off work, when I'll fit in walks more frequently, and prefer the less well known walks, loving paths that aren't so obvious on the ground.
I go to the gym a couple of times a week and I'm pretty fit so I like a nicely paced walk but also stop to look back frequently (amazing how many people miss fantastic views by not doing this) and to take photographs … I like to blog about my walks if I find them particularly interesting. Not sure many people read the blog but I find it fun to do.
I walked the Sandstone Trail a couple of years ago … 3 days walking with a couple of sleep overs at pubs. That was fun and I'd like to do similar again, probably on sections of the Coast to Coast or the Welsh Coastal Path for starters.
I visit Wales and Cumbria at least once a year so plan walks for when I go. My most walked areas are the Snowdonia National Park, the Peak District and the Yorkshire Dales. Cheshire also has some nice walks and it's not quite as flat as people would have you believe!
Be warned, I do like to chat and I have a dry sense of humour … so I will either be fun to walk with or seriously annoying depending on your outlook!
Safe walking everybody.

P.S. For the avoidance of confusion seeing as I'm looking for male & female walking companions but open for relationships should the circumstances arise, I am heterosexual so sorry guys!

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: Hi. I'm an easy-going romantic with a love of the countryside - high rugged areas, green and pleasant lands, peaceful valleys and windswept ridges. Not averse to a few home comforts, nice BandBs, concerts, cooking, camping if needs must. Working, but lots of spare weekdays and weekends, plenty of ideas of what I want to do more of - visits to the Highlands, Wales, and anywhere else that takes my fancy. It would be nice to share these good times with a like-minded, independent female. You will find me (I hope) considerate, good-humoured and honest.

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!
