Health walks in Wales and Scotland
There are Walking for Health schemes throughout England, but if you live in Wales or Scotland, then there are similar programmes that you could join.
Ramblers' Medal Routes are three short circular walking routes that start and finish at the same location. These routes are designed to take approximately 15, 30 and 60 minutes. The starting/finishing point is called a Hub. Hubs are usually places where you can relax after your walk with a cup of tea or continue to do another activity or hobby.
Let’s Walk Cymru is a programme coordinated by Ramblers Cymru. It’s designed to improve health and fitness in Wales by increasing the number of people walking in the great outdoors. There are more than 80 Let’s Walk Cymru groups throughout Wales delivering over 5000 walks a year, so if you'd like to start walking in Wales, visit their website to find out more.
Paths for All aims for a happier, healthier, greener and more active Scotland. Its health walk groups have been established to create a supportive environment for you to start to enjoy the many benefits of being physically active. So if you’re hoping to get started with walking in Scotland then Paths for All can help. You can find all of their walks on their website.
