Information

 

The Dunscore Walking group was formed in 2006 in response to one of the outcomes of a Community Survey undertaken at the end of 2005.Many people requested a group to organise walks, both locally and further afield. Safety rules and guidance 

  • Alternative walks will be arranged in the case of bad weather
  • If you feel unwell, or are taking medication that may affect your ability to take part in the walk, you must inform the leader
  • Dogs are not allowed on the walks
  • The walks are not races! It is important to keep the group together.
  • The leader’s decision is final
