Welcome to Edinburgh Young Walkers (EYW), a walking group for people in their 20s and 30s based in Edinburgh.

We have an active walks programme with a walk organised most weekends, and several weekends away each year. Our walks are a mix of hillwalks, including munros and corbetts, and always popular lower level outings – so whether you’re new to walking, or never far from the mountains, we’ll happily welcome you!

On the social side we have a pub night every month, with additional events through the year, including the annual Xmas night out, wine tastings, boat trips and dinners to name a few!

Ramblers made a video of us that is worth checking out.

Hope to see you on a hill soon!
