Group name: Tweeddale
This group is a part of Lothian & Borders Area.
The Tweeddale Group is an active and friendly group with a varied all-year-round programme of walks, usually held on a Sunday. We walk mostly in the beautiful and peaceful Scottish Borders, although we do sometimes go further afield. We have around 100 members, but individual walks generally attract between 8 and 20 walkers. Our membership comes from a wide area including the Borders, Midlothian and Edinburgh.
We usually have two trips away each year to other areas of Scotland or northern England. We also have a summer barbeque and a Christmas lunch, both including a short walk beforehand.
If you think you might enjoy walking with us, please feel free to join us a couple of times to try us out before committing yourself.
Email list: We have a mailing list which you are welcome to join by clicking here to send an email to register on the list. You will then receive emails with information on forthcoming walks and other appropriate issues.
Meeting Place: Our regular meeting place is Kingsmeadows Car Park, Peebles at 10am, unless another time is stated (this will appear in the walk description). Please let the leader know if you intend to join a walk at the start of the walk (parking may be limited).
Lunch: Bring a packed lunch unless otherwise stated.
Transport: We suggest a contribution (per passenger) to fuel costs, of £1 for round trips up to 20 miles, £2 for round trips of up to 40 miles, £3 for up to 60 miles. For longer trips, drivers should calculate a fair donation on actual fuel cost.
Dogs: Please discuss with the leader whether it is suitable to bring dogs on a particular walk.
