Rothsay Ramblers was formed as a separate group in 1991, and has about 100 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.

We offer a programme of walks on Monday mornings all year round. There are varying walk lengths of 3, 4 and 5 miles with occasional longer walks and members are welcome to join any walk. They will usually start and end at a pub, garden centre, café or village hall where refreshments/facilities may be available. For details of all the walks, please login to this website and go to the Calendar page.

The committee is always looking for new walks and walk leaders. We are also happy to consider any ideas  that the members may have, for example special interest walks that could take place on other days.


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