Hello there, I’m Richard. I joined EYW in 2008 and have held several positions in the committee. I have always enjoyed walking and the outdoors and spend my week looking forward to the weekend and the opportunity to get into the hills. I enjoy leading and organising walks and weekend trips. Recently I’ve got into wild camping expeditions and hope to continue this over the coming year.

Hope to see you out on a hill or in a pub soon. Richard
I joined the group in 2013 while living in Sunderland after hearing about EYW from my friend Bridget and her quest to complete all 282 Munro’s. I used to travel up north to join fellow members on hikes at weekends. I loved it so much I decided to make move to Edinburgh permanent in December of 2015. I love the mountains and have done many trekking adventures such as the Cathar Way in the Pyrenees, Tour du Mont Blanc, Toubkal Two Valley in Morocco, Laugavegur in Iceland and many more. I’m known as the gadget man in the group and have gadgets for everything. ;) I like to lead walks whether up a Munro or one of my legendary Pentlands themed hikes. ;) I once had 47 EYW members on my Christmas Mince Pie hike, a possible club record :) I’m now the EYW Social Secretary, so if you like to socialise as well as hiking, then come along to one our many social events.
I hope to see you out on a hill or out on one of our socials.
Since joining the group in 2010 I thought it would be nice to give something back so I now look after the IT side of the young walkers, randomly lead hikes and try to help new leaders organise walks. I can generally be found playing outdoors when I’m not sitting staring at a computer screen!
I’m the one pestering you to help build or maintain a path for a day, rather than just walking on them ;) When not doing that I’m sticking my head in a map training to complete my summer Mountain Leader assessment, out enjoying a ridge walk or perhaps a Scottish ski tour. See you on the hill!
