Important information for Casual walkers and new members

 

You are all most welcome to join the walks.  Arrival at 10.15 am ensures that you will have time to register and meet other walkers as the walks start promptly at 10.30 am.  Our walks are on mountain terrain and involve climbing mountains of 700 metres (2300 feet) or more in height, over a distance of 10 kilometres. 

A good level of fitness is required as none of our walks can be regarded as suitable for beginners to hill walking. There is a significant difference between the effort required for road walking and climbing mountains. 

 Please read the fitness tab above which gives an excellent exercise programme in preparation.

If you have climbed a mountain in the recent past, you should be fit enough for our ‘C’ Group.
Packed lunch and a hot drink are essential. The dress code tab above gives you information on correct clothing.

If you are unclear about any of this, please contact Wee Binnians by phone or email and we will be happy to advise.
