Hillwalking with the Sunday Brunch Club Frequently asked questions


When are where do you walk?

We walk at least once a month usually on the 3rd Sunday of each month. Our Sunday walks usually last all day (including driving to the walk and drink/bite to eat afterwards).


How can I find out more details about the walks?

We’ll put details on our events pages the month before each walk. Just click on the relevant month from our events page.


How long do walks normally last?

Walks typically last between 4 and 6 hours.


Do I need to be super fit?

The short answer is no! Some walks are easy, over flat or gently undulating ground, while others involve steep ascents and are more strenuous. We’ll give a short description of each walk on the relevant month’s events page and you can decide what suits you.


What are the walks like?

Like all Sunday Brunch Club activities, the focus is on enjoyment rather than ‘bagging’. The walks are relaxed, friendly and very welcoming to new members. We usually go to a pub or restaurant for a well-earned meal after a good day’s walking.


Do you organise transport?

We organise car-share from Edinburgh city centre. It’s an informal arrangement that has worked brilliantly. We can’t guarantee a lift as it depends on sufficient drivers. So far it’s worked every time.


If you are not driving, please give a petrol contribution to your driver, even if you know them

We do rely on people driving and don’t want them to be out-of-pocket. If in doubt, err on the side of generosity. It would be very difficult logistically, very time-consuming and expensive to make the same journeys by public transport.

Remember to bring clean shoes and a carrier bag (for muddy boots) for the journeys to and from the walk.


Cost per car

You contribute to the petrol cost per car at 22p per mile.


What will I need

Good walking boots

Walking socks are great if you have them

A base layer and mid-layer/fleece

Waterproof jacket

Ideally water resistant/waterproof walking trousers, though other light weight, quick-drying trousers are fine too

Hat/gloves/scarf – it can get very cold, even in Summer

Suncream and sunglasses – well you never know!

Rucksack (for packed lunch and layers)

Clean shoes and a carrier bag (for pre- and post-walk)

Water

Packed lunch
