Looking for walking partners this winter

Looking for walking partners this winter


Postby henoctasus » Sun Nov 18, 2018 9:13 pm

Winter is coming and for once, I don’t want to hibernate and avoid the outdoors for the next few months.

I have equipped myself for the cold and would like to continue bagging Munros.

I’m looking for walking partners of any age and gender – the more the merrier! I’m in my late twenties, based in Glasgow, have a car and tend to be outdoors most weekends.

Thanks in advance! :D

I like to get out winter walking available most wknds find it hard to get out as I depend on public transport and the 22 munros I have still to bag are in remote places I live in motherwell it is easy for me to get into most areas in Glasgow

Hi Bard and everyone! I am quite keen to get out again on the hills and bag a new Munro or two soon. Is anyone free on the 27/28/29? My partner is back to work so I've got lots of time haha. I was out yesterday and there is a bit of snow left on the tops, but not enough to be dangerous (no crampons needed). Here's my post: https://m.facebook.com/groups/138397466219224?view=permalink&id=2193181954074088. I have only done 66 Munros so plenty of scope :-) Cheers, Vlad
