A typical ‘C’ walk might be 8 - 12 miles over relatively flat farmland, mostly on tracks and footpaths. It may occasionally be necessary to climb over dykes and fences where there are no gates or styles. It may also be necessary to ford small burns, or to walk in snow in the winter.
‘D’ walks are offered from time to time; these are walks of 5-7 miles at a leisurely pace, mostly on level ground along good tracks and paths, including places of interest along the route.
