Scheduled guided walks for 2023

I have been taking a look at my calendar to find some Fridays when I am free to offer scheduled guided walks. I very much enjoy these walks as we have a good core of regulars and nearly always have new walkers to welcome to the group.

I have tried to get at least one date pencilled in each month until August and I thought I would post these here, on Facebook and in an email to subscribers (you can choose to subscribe to emails on the website, just scroll to the bottom of the home page) so that you can put them in your diaries. I will work on the routes over the next week or so. I may add other dates as the year progresses.

Generally walks start at 9:30 and are 3 to 4 hours long.

The cost for the walk is £10 and you can reserve a place by emailing me ( or messaging me via Facebook.

Friday 24th March – Slieau Dhoo from Tholty Will

Friday 7th April – South Barrule from Glen Maye

Friday 5th May – North Barrel via the Corrany Valley

Friday 19th May – Colden from Injebreck reservoir

Friday 21st July – Slieau Ruy and Lhargee Ruy from Little London

Friday 18th August – Laxey Hills  (Slieau Ruy, Ouyr and Lhean)

Thanks for your support and I look forward to seeing you out on the hills!
