Details
Walks are lead by trained walk leaders and will cover many green spaces around Edinburgh. These are run by Ageing Well and are aimed at people aged over 50. They are free to attend and provide a great opportunity to get moving and make some new friends.

We run various walking groups across the city, giving the opportunity to meet up, socialise and have a leisurely stroll in some picturesque settings.

Walking is the highest participation sport in the UK so you’ll be in some very good company, the emphasis with our walking groups is on getting out and getting moving at a pace that’s right for you.

For more information and to get involved, call the Ageing Well team.
