Blairgowrie and East Perthshire Next Steps Walking Group

BaDNS provides a range of weekday walking opportunities supervised by fully qualified walk leaders and first aiders, suitable for most abilities.

Easy Walks   Moderate Walks   Serious Walks

Recruiting: A volunteer minibus driver wanted, training given but you must have at least D1(101) on your licence.  Someone who knows what we do, and doesn't mind driving on linear and other walks.  There will be an incentive on offer!

Our programme of walks range from easy low level or town based starter walks up to very serious extended and remote hill walking, and associated activities.  They are designed to allow people to develop and progress at their own pace reaching whatever standards they set for themselves.  Our programme evolved from the easy and short single walk Stride for Life programme that started in early 2004.  As people gained confidence and fitness many found that they needed more challenges.  This grew so successful that a full range of walks spread over different days had to be developed.  After an initial introduction (on a few Wednesday walks) all participants are welcome (bus seats permitting and subject to the subscription) to take part in whatever walks and activities they are capable of doing.
