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!
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)
- packed lunch
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 35miles. At 22p per mile that is a total of £13.50 per car for the return journey. Your contribution is: £7.75 if 2 people in car, £5.20 if 3 people and £4.00 if 4 people. Please bring the right change if you can.
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.
