There are eleven Groups in the Lothian and Borders Ramblers Area, each arranges a walks programme suitable for people with different levels of experience and fitness. We organise more than 55 walks every month and offer a variety of walks –
  • from 2½ miles to 12 miles+ in length
  • flat strolls to challenging Munros
  • weekend, mid-week and evening
  • by coach, by car and public transport
Some groups organise social events and some arrange weekends away. Each walk is graded according to the level of challenge and is led by one of our volunteer walk leaders. Most groups have a central meeting point and lifts can be arranged from there. Balerno, Coldstream, Eildon, Edinburgh, Linlithgow, Livingston, Midlothian, North Berwick, South Queensferry, Tweeddale area groups, Edinburgh Young Walkers (for people in their 20s and 30s) along with subgroup Edinburgh Young Walkers Plus (for fortysomethings) make up the Lothian and Borders Ramblers Area.

We extend a warm welcome to all new walkers, visitors and guests. You can walk with any group and if you think you might enjoy walking with us, please have a look at our Walks page, choose a walk, get in touch and come along. You can find answers to some of the most commonly asked questions on the Q&A page.

You do not need to join Ramblers first to try your first few walks – see Q&A for details.

For more than 80 years Ramblers, a charity, has been campaigning in Great Britain
  • to protect the natural beauty of our countryside
  • to promote walking and the outdoors
  • to safeguard public access to land
  • to safeguard the footpath network
Many of our members join Ramblers to support these objectives. If you are already in a walking group, your group may wish to take out Affiliated Membership to take advantage of Ramblers insurance and support the organisational aims.

Lothian and Borders Area Ramblers is part of Ramblers Scotland, a charity registered in Scotland (no SC039799), and also the Ramblers' Association, Britain's biggest walking charity and the representative body for walkers.
