This is a taster walk for people who are interested in joining the North of Scotland Long Distance Walkers Association. Come along and meet some of our regular members on a tour around Forres.

We are a local group of the Long Distance Walkers Association serving a large area in the north of Scotland, roughly everything north of a line between Aberdeen and the Isle of Mull, including the Western Isles, Orkney and Shetland

We not only welcome members and guests from our area but also visitors from further afield to this far-flung corner of the country which offers so much in the way of walking in areas steeped in whisky and wildlife, history and culture, geology, landscape and sport.

We offer our members at least one group walk each month advertised in Strider (the LDWA magazine), and aim to have some social walks in-between advertised on our local group page. Our walks are being specially planned to offer participants a range of walking experiences from coast to Corbett and from river to glen.

As well as social walks, we put on two challenge walks each year: Heldon Hill Sunset Walk and the Laich o’Moray 50-mile challenge in October.

The walk will take us on a circumnavigation of Forres, going to Cluny Hill, Muiry Wood, Sanquhar and the Altyre Estate, before returning via the River Findhorn.

To give an accurate taste of a typical LDWA walk (and to get us back at a reasonable time) we will be walking at a brisk pace averaging around 3 miles per hour, with a couple of short breaks. Don’t worry if you aren’t sure whether that would be comfortable for you. The walk is designed so that anybody wishing to take a short-cut back to the centre of Forres can leave the main group at several points.

Please bring drinks and snacks.
