Enjoy Our Spring and Summer Walks

Spring is now well underway and Summer will soon with us so enjoy your walks.

2022 Linear Walk

2022 Linear Walk

This year's Linear Walk will be based at ELY on August 25th. There will be a choice of various walk lengths, and all of them should see us having time to look around the town at the end. There will then be an evening meal before we get back to Bedford.

It will see us returning to our traditional and much enjoyed annual event. Please look out for further information nearer the time.

Walks programme

Walks programme

Our programme of walks of three, four and five miles is continuing.

Check the calendar for details and to see if refreshments and/or toilets are available. 



Rothsay Ramblers was formed as a separate group in 1991, and has about 125 members. We are a sociable group whose primary aim is to enjoy walking in the countryside within a 20 mile radius of Bedford, including Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.




Following a review of where we are, the committee has taken the decision to remove the need to book places on walks. We hope this will provide a bit more flexibility. Of course, Coronavirus has not gone away so we all still need to be careful and we will continue to monitor the situation. Please do not join a walk if you have any symptoms that might be Covid. Please click here for more detailed advice on walk safety.

Where possible, walks include the opportunity to have refreshments, but some walks are offered without this. Details are on the calendar. If you login to this website and go to the calendar page, you will see all the walks that are currently planned and see those where refreshments are available.

The committee has also thought more about the pros and cons of walking on a different or additional day as discussed at the AGM. We are currently researching venue availability on different days and will in due course be inviting members' views.  


Please check the calendar for walks planned for later this year.
