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 and Buckinghamshire.

We organise regular walks on Monday mornings with a range of distances between 3 and 7 miles, but most of our walks are 5 miles in length. We walk in groups of between 20 and 30, and start and finish our walks at a pub, golf club or garden centre where we can park, pre-order our lunch, and use the facilities. Advice to help you have a safe and enjoyable walk is provided on this website. 

You can see our next walks on this page.

To see all walks currently planned and for further details, please login and visit the Calendar page.

We will update the calendar as changes occur and to advise of any issues.


We also have a programme of regular social events. We are affiliated to the Ramblers and to HF Holidays
