Rothsay Ramblers was formed in 1981, 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.


At the present time, small group walks with social distancing of three, four and five miles for up to six people per walk are available. Please see the calendar for details of the walks. You will need to text the walk leader for any walk you want to join to reserve a place. Click here for further advice on walk safety in the light of COVID-19.

Please check the calendar for plans for future walks.
