General Walk Info

Please read the following general notes about the walks.

Booking: Walks do have limited numbers, so early booking is advisable to avoid disappointment.

How to Book: All walks EXCEPT MYND DROVER are booked via The Outdoor Depot's Website; the MYND DROVER only is booked via the SiEntries Website.

Refunds: Sorry, no refunds can be given for non-attendance or cancellations.

Dogs: Sorry, no dogs on the walks, please.

Clothing: For all but the walks marked as “Easy”, please bring sensible walking shoes or boots that are suitable for off-road hill / mountainous terrain. Also, weatherproof and windproof clothing and spare layers are essential as weather can change quickly up on the hill with little shelter. The temperature on the summits can be much lower than in the valley and the wind can be much stronger. These two elements combine to lower your body temperature quickly. Carry a hat and gloves in all but the finest summer weather. Hopefully the weather will be good enough to need sun hats and sun lotion so please bring them if you believe that you may need them.

Food & Drink: Please bring enough food and water suitable for the weather conditions on the day. A packed lunch or snack is sensible for most of the walks. For those walks that include a pub break, please note that any refreshments at the pub are not included in the price of the walk, so please bring the necessary funds if you wish to partake. (For pub visits, we will probably be asking nearer the time for preferences, to aid the pub catering staff.)

Pace: Most walks are not designed to be 'route marches', but are to be enjoyed in a reasonably leisurely way, with stops for food & drink and generally resting and taking in the stunning views we have on offer. Please keep to the pace set by the walk leader, to avoid breaking up the group.

Please ensure that you are suitably attired and provisioned, as our walk leaders do reserve the right to turn people away if they consider that they are not suitably prepared.

We'll be updating this page with info about the start locations.

Walk Maps: We have put together a set of rough guide maps to give you some idea of where the main walks are located, to assist you in your choice. This is available as a PDF HERE.
