West Lothian 50+ Network Walky Talky 2

Walky Talky 2

Group Leader: Innes Black
Meet: Thursdays

Distances vary, but the longest walk would be around 6 miles. This is up to each individual’s ability, there is usually an alternative to do part of the walk or to do an extra mile or two! Of course, there are the obligatory coffee stops. We have visited quite a large number of these establishments over the years.

I am sure there must be someone out there who could write a verse or two about the best cafes in and around West Lothian. We go further afield on occasion. We have secured three mini-bus trips again this year, thanks to the kindness of Heather who has offered to drive us on our outings.

We are a friendly bunch of like-minded folk who like going for a walk and a blether, our countryside is beautiful and steeped in history.

Our aim is to keep active, fit and enjoy the company and of course the coffee.
At the moment we have 21 members in the group, but this varies on a week to week basis and weather permitting.

The walks are varied as much as possible and I am always open to suggestions for new routes. There is travelling involved, either bus or train and the occasional mini bus, we do the odd local paths. A programme is prepared for 2-3 months in advance.
