Our groups help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Most groups organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.

The Dumfries & District Group organises walks to suit most tastes throughout the region and beyond.

The core programme consists of day walks every fortnight on both Saturday and Sunday. These range from 6 to 12 miles and from Leisurely to Strenuous. Shorter evening walks are offered during the summer months.

In addition to the core programme there is a Half Day walk and an Adventure walk every month. Half Day walks are generally in the morning and are 4 to 6 miles in length and usually Leisurely. Adventure Walks may not have been recce'ed and they may be in an area unfamiliar to the leader and so the route in consequence may change on the day.

The Group also has a number of social activities. You are most welcome to join the Dumfries & District Group whatever sort of walker you are.

Please note that If you intend joining a walk at its start point you should advise the leader in advance - start points can change or there may be special parking arrangements.
