The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Cotswold Outdoor

72 Rose St, Edinburgh EH2 2NN, UK – 0131 341 2063

Prices similar to competitors, but they offer student discount so that's what gets me inside. A fairly large range and big sized shop (not as large as in Liverpool though). Staff friendly, and helpful. Only issue being a couple things didn't have price labels so you would have to find/ask staff.

I find it very difficult to get boots, rucksack and hiking clothing which fit me, to the point where I've just been using stuff I've owned for years which isn't great, but at least I know what the problems are. But after two weekends of not-very-enjoyable hiking, feeling too hot, too wind-blown, and too wet, and constantly trying to adjust by taking things off and putting other things on and then off again, I decided to try Cotswolds (I normally shop at the less pricey Mountain Warehouse). And I'm glad I did: the lovely sales assistant, Sarah, listened really well to what I wanted and didn't want, and found several really good options which fit me and had the features I wanted, and she talked me through several rucksack options, discussing very knowledgeably all the features, and I'm really, really happy with my purchases. I went into the shop feeling I probably wouldn't find anything close to what I wanted - this has happened many times before - and I've come away feeling satisfied that the rucksack and jacket I bought are the best possible options for me. The shop has lots of good stock, but Sarah's help was crucial for me.

Trespass

27-29 Frederick St, Edinburgh EH2 2ND, UK – 0131 225 7456

Its a small(ish) store but has a mezzanine level making it bigger than it looks. Friendly service when I visited.

E Mid priced shop with good quality kit. Good range of stuff on this two floor store.

Tiso Edinburgh Outdoor Experience

41 Commercial St, Edinburgh EH6 6JD, UK – 0131 554 0804

Great variety & finding the prices are very competitive even in comparison to so called discount stores like Go Outdoors. The greatest perk for me is the knowledge of staff and want to help and advise. Last time I was there I was looking for a light weight tent for wild camping & a stove and they were more than happy to set the tents up I was interest in and then list of the perks & downfalls of each.

Great service and choice. Get a discount card...it pays off quite quickly. Cafe good too and not expensive

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!
