The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Scottish Mountain Gear Ltd

Fisherrow Industrial Estate, Newhailes Rd, Musselburgh EH21 6RU, UK – 0131 653 1310

Had a sleeping bag, cleaned and repaired. Good price for it and a quick turnaround. They kept me informed of its progress all the way through. Now as good as new:)

Fabulous! Thank you so much for fitting a new groundsheet to my old tent. The workmanship is excellent and the service has been seamless all the way through. If I need anything else repaired I'll be in touch!

Sports Direct

5, Fort Kinnaird, The Fort Retail Park, Newcraighall Rd, Edinburgh EH15 3RH, UK – 0344 332 5085

Good amount of clothes in here. Can be a little messy looking sometimes buy I guess that goes for any sports direct. Nice big shoe collection also and happy staff.

Ok store

Mountain Warehouse

36A, Fort Kinnaird Retail Park, Newcraighall Rd, Edinburgh EH15 3HP, UK – 0131 669 9080

Shop is a little cramped with lots of stock on the shop floor. Could not have asked for better service though. Staff were knowledgeable about their products and we were approached by no less than 2 employees for help in our relatively short visit.

Nice staff. A little quiet. More people should be here.

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the country. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks..
