General planning

    Choose appropriate walks to suit individuals experience and fitness levels, navigational skills, area knowledge and prevailing weather conditions.

    If you need help and advice then please call us so we can assist you to plan a trip that is suitable and most of all enjoyable.

    Do not attempt to plan a trip based on the number of days available to you, you must plan according to your ability and distances achievable on a daily basis. Consecutive long days do cause tiredness and injuries and will result in walkers leaving the route so do not take on too much!

        Take children only on routes which allow safe and easy retreats, not too long

        Set an objective

        Note places for refreshment stops, places of interest and natural features

        Naismiths rule - allow one hour for every 3 miles (5km) adding one hour for every 600 mtr (2000') of ascent

        Heavily laden backpackers - allow one hour for every 2.5 miles (4km) and an extra hour for every 450mtr (1500') ascent.
