FOLLOWING ADVICE FROM GOVERNMENT, NHS AND RAMBLERS HEADQUARTERS THE WALKS PROGRAMME HAS BEEN SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
THIS IS AN UNFORTUNATE BUT INEVITABLE CONSEQUENCE OF THE CURRENT CORONAVIRUS SITUATION.
Perth & District Group is an active and friendly group with an all year round programme of walks, held on a Saturday. Walks are usually between 5 and 12 miles and take full advantage of the beautiful hills, countryside and coast of Perthshire, Angus and Fife. We have over 200 members, but individual walks generally attract between 12 and 25 walkers.
We usually arrange two coach outings per year, in order to walk further afield or to do a longer linear walk, and an away weekend to sample different areas of Scotland. We undertake path clearing in our area, working with the local Greenspace Ranger, and organise social activities
We also run a parallel programme of Wednesday walks that is similar in scope to the main programme but these walks are not entered on the Walkfinder application. Full details are on the Wednesday Walks page.
If you think you'd enjoy walking with us please feel free to come out with us a couple of times to try us out before committing yourself.
Perth & District Ramblers has recently joined The Walking Partnership. This partnership, supported by RWH Travel Limited, provides direct financial contributions to local walking groups to help with organising group walks, encouraging people to get out walking, helping to clear and improve footpaths, providing equipment to help walkers etc. Over the past 65 years, the company has given many millions of pounds to assist walking charities and conservation projects in Britain and the countries they visit on their worldwide holidays. Now our group can benefit directly.
RWH Travel Limited operates group walking and activity holidays in the UK and all around the world. Each holiday is accompanied by a qualified leader, so you can leave all the organising to them and just enjoy meeting like minded people. Walking holidays are graded according to preferences and abilities and there is a full range from sightseeing to hutting holidays. Take a look at their websiteand explore the full range of walking and experience holidays at www.rwhtravel.com

Remember when you book to quote the name of our group, Perth & District Ramblers, and we will then receive a contribution of £10 per person on UK holidays, £20 per person on short haul holidays, and £30 per person on long haul holidays. This extra funding could really make a difference to us!
