MONTHLY COACH WALKS
Each month we hire a coach to take us to locations within two hours drive of Edinburgh. Coaches leave Waterloo Place at 9am and return around 7pm. We offer a variety of different walks on each coach outing and descriptions of each walk are circulated to members via the group email system together with details of how to book a place at a cost of £15 per person.
Assistance dogs are allowed on the coach.
