This board is for meeting up, whether it means arranging group walking trips, or just looking for a partner for your next walk or sharing a lift. There is also a club directory.
Warning Feel free to use this board to arrange to meet up with other walkers, either individually or for a particular walk, or for a larger get together over a weekend. The usual precautions are advised when arranging to meet individuals you have not previously met.

Please note that meetups are NOT arranged by Walkhighlands and everyone who arranges to meet for a walk using this board is responsible for their own safety. Please ensure you do not attempt a walk beyond your own abilities.

Walking, rambling, hillwalking and mountaineering clubs

Walking, rambling, hillwalking and mountaineering clubs

Rather than have forums or threads for meets from each club that don't really get used, it seems more sensible and less random to have a sticky club directory to help you find a suitable club for your area and activity.

To see your club link listed here, simply get your club's webmaster to add a link to Walkhighlands from your club's website and then contact us using a private message or the contact form and we'll include you. It's not much bother and these things help us to keep providing Walkhighlands for free. We will only list established walking or mountaineering clubs

The following clubs all help support and are supported by Walkhighlands with a link:
