SCOTLAND

Summary:

Ben Lomond, Trossachs, Scotland, G63 0AR.

Description: 
Ben Lomond is one of my favourite hills. It's convenient from Glasgow and Edinburgh, and at 974m, has impressive views over Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. We meet on Eastern Shores of Loch Lomond to start the hike. The route is 8 miles (12km) and will take an estimated 5.5 hours. We will walk at a relatively slow and steady pace for this hike, after which there's the option to join us in a loch-side pub for a chat and drink. A reasonable level of fitness will allow you to complete the walk. The event starts and ends at Rowardennan car park Coniston, G63 0AR.

Meeting point: Rowardenan Car Park, G63 0AR.

Start time: 10.30am.

Distance: 8 miles (12km).

Duration: Approximately 5.5 hours walk + optional pub visit.

Pace: Slow and steady (please bear this in mind if you're a fast hiker).

Suitability: Most-levels (if you're unsure, you may like to check out our Hiking for Beginners event).

SEPTEMBER 2022

Summary:

Saturday 24th September 2022: Old Man of Coniston, Lake District, England, LA21 8HU.

Tickets are available here for £25 per person.

Description: 
The Old Man of Coniston, is a hill (or 'fell') in the Lake District, Cumbria, England. It stands 802m high and there's a classic circular route that takes us over the top of the Old Man, and passes a tarn (a small lake up in the hills) on the way - a great spot to enjoy lunch. 'Old Man' is believed to come from “Alt Maen” meaning “High Stone” in Norse, and Coniston was “Konig's Tun” or King’s Farm (so High Stone of King's Farm). The route is 7 miles (11km) and will take an estimated 4.5 hours. We will walk at a relatively slow and steady pace for this hike, after which there's the option to join us in a local pub for a chat and refreshing drink. A moderate level of fitness will allow you to complete the walk. The event starts and ends at a car park on the outskirts of Coniston, LA21 8HU.

 

Tickets are available here for £25 per person.

Meeting point: Old Station Car Park, LA21 8HU.

Start time: 10.30am.

Distance: 7 miles (11km).

Duration: Approximately 4.5 hours walk + optional pub visit.

Pace: Slow and steady (please bear this in mind if you're a fast hiker).

Suitability: Most-levels (if you're unsure, you may like to check out our Hiking for Beginners event).
