The aim of the walking group is to get folk out and about in Aberdeen City and Shire and to explore some of the beautiful countryside the north east of Scotland has to offer. The aim is to widen social circles, provide structure, improve health, both physically and mentally, and introduce those who participate to the great outdoors. Literacy and numeracy skills are also improved through planning walks and working out speeds and distance travelled.

The group visits various locations throughout the north east. We usually walk between 6 and 10 miles, over different terrains. During the walks we look at plant and animal life and how the different seasons affect these different environments. Proper clothing and footwear must be worn while we are out and about and we welcome suggestions for future walks.
