Area name: Lothian & Borders

There are eleven Groups in the Lothian and Borders Ramblers Area, each arranges a walks programme suitable for people with different levels of experience and fitness. We organise more than 55 walks every month and offer a variety of walks –

  • from 2½ miles to 12 miles+ in length 
  • flat strolls to challenging Munros 
  • weekend, mid-week and evening 
  • by coach, by car and public transport 
  • family walks

We extend a warm welcome to all new walkers, visitors and guests. You can walk with any group and if you think you might enjoy walking with us, please have a look at our list of walks, choose a walk, get in touch with the relevant group and come along!

Some groups organise social events and some arrange weekends away. Each walk is graded according to the level of challenge and is led by one of our volunteer walk leaders. Most groups have a central meeting point and lifts can be arranged from there. See the list of groups below to explore the walks available in each group.
