The Walking Group

The St Leonard’s in the Fields Walking Group currently meets, approximately once every three weeks, from early spring to late autumn. Perthshire provides us with good paths and varied scenery – we have walked in dappled woodlands and beside sparkling rivers, we have sat looking out over quiet lochs, we have seen glorious autumn colours. We enjoy lively conversation; we enjoy coffee stops and lunch breaks, and may visit a coffee shop to round off the day. Our walks, mostly between 4 and 7 miles, are within the capabilities of anyone reasonable fit. Regulars, occasional, friends, guests, dogs – all are welcome.

Feel free to turn up and join us at our meeting points.
