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.
