Looking for a Lothian and Borders walking buddy.

If anyone is around Midlothian, East Lothian or the Scottish Borders and would like a regular walking buddy please get in touch. I am looking to do some hillwalking with the long term outlook of Marilyn and Munro bagging. I will have my Labrador girl Bailey along on any walks, I have necessary gear (backpack, waterproofs, first aid kit etc) and I am available most weekends.
I have a lack of friends with the fitness or the desire to come along on these expeditions with me, would rather have some company and hopefully make some new friends along the way. I am 29f, and reside in Midlothian, can drive to other areas if required.

I'd be interested but in the Loch Lomond area.

Aw wow lucky you! You must have some great walks nearby in the Trossachs, I would be interested in joining you some weekends as your area is really gorgeous :) you would likewise be very welcome to join me on walks around the borders and Midlothian.

I actually live in the Falkirk area.

So either way is not too far for me.

I am going to the cairngorms this Sunday.


I am quite in a similar "boat" as you.

Usually, do solo hikes, walks.

I would be looking for at least 6+ hours of walking, so at least its worth to drive :D

So, if you're up for it,

You can come here next weekend maybe Ochil hills to start with.

Or I can come to Lothians, I honestly don't mind.

You may be sorted ....
But I'm on fringes of Pentlands, Edinburgh side and regularly walking there (especially with restrictions)
Very happy for company - especially a dog! - any time you out that way
