OIR Hill Walking Group

The Saturday Hill Walking Group is a very active, social bunch. The group has around 30 members with numbers on Saturday walks ranging from 5 to 20, much depending upon the walk and the weather.  We also have Christmas and New Year walks plus a weekend trip in the autumn.

Walks are generally every Saturday starting at 9.00am near the exit to the Vikingar car park in Largs.  For some walks the start time is earlier so it is always best to check with a group leader a few days before.

Walkers should be suitably attired for the intended walk and the likely weather and should bring refreshments for short breaks and lunch eg sandwiches, fruit, tea, coffee, water, etc.

The destinations/routes/start-point/time may be changed at short notice to suit the weather conditions or other factors but emails will alert members at least one day before the walk.

´A´ walks will generally include off-road, sometimes boggy ground and may entail serious hill climbing. These vary in length from 7 to 11 miles. Appropriate footwear is essential and the use of poles is recommended. Where possible a less strenuous ´B´ option will be available. These will normally be low-level walks and may be a bit shorter eg around 8 miles.

There are many local walks but we also enjoy walks further south in Ayrshire and to the north and west of Glasgow. We use public transport as much as possible. Our current schedule is available by clicking on the link below.

The group is very sociable and all new members will be made very welcome.
