Group name: Eildon Ramblers

Based in the Scottish Borders our steadily growing membership is drawn from a wide area covering Hawick, Jedburgh, Kelso, Chirnside, Earlston, Lauder, Melrose, Galashiels and Selkirk.   A warm welcome is guaranteed for new walkers and visiting members of other Ramblers groups.  At the end of most of our walks there is the opportunity to socialise and build friendships over coffee and cake at a local café.

We offer a wide range of walks on alternate weekends throughout the year, usually with walks on both the Saturday and Sunday.   Our walks range from leisurely low level to strenuous hill walks, reflecting the range of abilities and expectations of our membership.

We arrange at least one away trip each year with a range of walks across three days.  In September 2018 we are away at Drymen and in September 2019 we are going to Arrochar.  In May 2019 we are hosting the walks for the Ramblers Gathering which is taking place in Melrose based at the Waverley Castle Hotel.

As our members are drawn from such a wide area, unless otherwise advised in the individual walks details, our walkers make their own arrangements to get to the designated walk start point.  If transport is a problem, you can contact our walks leader who will enquire of our members if car share can be arranged.

We regret we don’t allow dogs on any of our walks.  If you need to have an assistance dog walking with you, please enquire of the walk leader if the walk is suitable, our walks often pass through areas with free roaming livestock.

To enable us to contact potential walkers should there be any changes to our published walk, we require all walkers to register with the walk leader beforehand and provide a contact phone number.

We promote walking safely and walkers must be suitably dressed and have appropriate supplies of food and water with them.  New walkers are advised to enquire of the advertised walk leader what clothing/equipment/supplies are appropriate to their specific walk.

We encourage training and development of our walk leaders.
