Event Details

Hillwalking with the Sunday Brunch Club Edinburgh Walking Group

Stay active with our hugely popular Hillwalking Group based in Edinburgh

  • Walk for fun and fitness

  • Enjoy beautiful scenery

  • Meet new people

  • No routes to plan or maps to buy, just turn up

  • No car? No problem. We organise car-share from Edinburgh city centre

Our Edinburgh Hillwalking Group is very popular. We're incredibly lucky to have an experienced and dedicated team of volunteers to organise our hillwalks. They love hillwalking and it shows!

 

Walk Description

Walk is ~10 miles long with ~300m climb on track and good path. To be honest, the climb is so gradual that you barely notice it.
 
If we are lucky enough to have a nice sunny day, it will be nice to see the change of colour etc.

 It should take 5-6 hours and given the time of year make sure that you bring waterproof jackets and trousers and sun tan lotion, as these hills are  very exposed.
 
It is an enjoyable walk with magnificent views across the country on a clear day.

 

Walk Duration: 5-6 hours

 

What will I need?

 

Remember to bring clean shoes and a carrier bag (for muddy boots) for the journeys to and from the walk.

  • good walking boots
  • walking socks are great if you have them. And bring spares in case your feet get wet.
  • a base layer and mid-layer/fleece 
  • waterproof jacket
  • ideally water resistant/waterproof walking trousers, though other light weight, quick-drying trousers are fine too
  • hat/gloves/scarf - it can get very cold, even in Summer
  • walking poles if you have them
  • suncream and sunglasses - well you never know!
  • rucksack (for packed lunch and layers)
  • clean shoes and a carrier bag (for pre- and post-walk)
  • water
  • packed lunch
 
Car-Share
We organise car-share from Edinburgh city centre. It's an informal arrangement that has worked brilliantly. Everyone meets at Summerhall and gets into a car - quite simple! We can't guarantee a lift as it depends on sufficient drivers. So far it's worked every time.

 

If you are not driving, please give a petrol contribution to your driver, even if you know them. We do rely on people driving and don't want them to be out-of-pocket. If in doubt, err on the side of genorosity. It would be very difficult logistically, time-consuming and expensive to make the same journeys by public transport.

 

Cost per car
The journey to the start of the walk from Summerhall is approx 60miles. At 22p per mile that is a total of £26 per car for the return journey. Your contribution is: £13 if 2 people in car, £9 if 3 people and £6.50 if 4 people. Please bring the right change if you can.

 

Walk meeting point
 
9 am outside Summerhall for car share.
 
 
Your Safety and Responsibilities
 
Hill walking is an activity with a danger of personal injury, and unfortunately in extreme cases death. By participating in these activities you should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for your own actions and involvement.
 
The walk organisers are volunteers, who try to encourage the enjoyment of the walk by all participants. They may help by sharing their experience, but they are not qualified walking guides … and the onus of responsibility for deciding whether or not to rely on any advice lies with you. You are responsible for your own decisions and safety, and neither the walk organisers, nor any other persons associated with Sunday Brunch Club accepts legal responsibility for your welfare on the walk.
 

Booking walks

Please book your place in advance as we need to have details for all walkers.
Booking will remain open until the start of the walk (unless the walk is fully booked).
If, after booking, you find you cannot attend that is OK.
