Edinburgh Ramblers launch Autumn family walks

Lotian and borders

Edinburgh Ramblers have launched an exciting series of family walks, running every fortnight through to November. Not only is it an ideal opportunity to see the countryside at its most stunning, it’s also a great form of exercise for the whole family.

With busy wildlife everywhere and stunning displays of red, gold and yellow leaves, nature puts on an incredible display in autumn that shouldn’t be missed. Just by using a bit of imagination, simple walks can be made into exciting expeditions that give children plenty of exercise, fresh air and wonderful experiences to remember.

Step out on a Big Pathwatch walk

Mushroom

The Big Pathwatch continues in great strides. We’re a quarter of the way there, but there’s still time to get involved and help us walk every path. There’s lots to see and do on your walk. Autumn is a great time for foraging and wherever you live you’re likely to find blackberries, sloes and beechnuts filling the hedgerows. Why not step out on a Big Pathwatch walk and see what seasonal treats your local area has to offer.

Get involved, follow our progress and find tips for foraging and making the most of your Big Pathwatch walk on our website.

The Big Pathwatch is supported by Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust, the charitable trust of Ramblers Worldwide Holidays.
