The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Avertical World Climbing Centre

7-11 Blinshall St, Dundee DD1 5DF, UK – 01382 201901

A great indoor climbing centre with friendly helpful staff

I only began rock climbing about 6 months ago, I done the free taster session that was supplied at my local universities freshers fair. Ever since that session i have been hooked, the place is amazing, the staff are amazing and so friendly and if you have any issues they are always there to help out and advise. The small shop they have is perfect, it has everything you could possibly want but if they dont they can advise you where to get it. I cannot rate this place high enough, the boulder wall is perfect and the Climbing wall is incredible, and to top it all of it is in a goddamn church. Its a must visit if your an outdoors person and living in dundee or just here for a visit.

The WorKit Centre

2 Fulton Rd, Dundee DD2 4SW, UK – 0845 180 1233

Great shop for work gear

It's good

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the country. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks..

Camping and Caravaning

Athollbank Guest House

19 Thomson St, Dundee DD1 4LF, UK – 01382 801118

This place is comfortable and very reasonably priced. My wife and I had a very enjoyable short stay. Great location, easy walk to city centre. Lovely walk along riverside. Local restaurants are good and close by. Looking forward to return visit.

Had an enjoyable short break with friends, excellent value for money, with a comfortable room and good cooked breakfast.

Birkhill Inn

124 Coupar Angus Rd, Birkhill, Dundee DD2 5PG, UK – 01382 581297

Reasonable little place, friendly and casual feel....leaving one relaxed....great waiting staff, cheerful souls willing to offer advice and recommendations....all are welcome and catered for.... The food is average for this type of establishment.... Not sure why there steak pie is famous, on the basis of "famous" i had to give it a try and was left with a feeling of disappointment, where as it was fine and nothing wrong with it; it was no different to any other generic steak pie I've had elsewhere....

Worth the short trip from Dundee. Homemade food is excellent. Waitresses are very helpful. Dining area and bar were clean and well maintained. Great areas to keep kids amused. Early booking required for special occasions.

Cullaig Guesthouse

1 Rosemount Terrace, Dundee DD3 6JQ, UK – 01382 322154

Owners are both very friendly, approachable, and are a delight to have a conversation with. Rooms are clean and well serviced,

Hyper sympa et tr├Ęs conviviale le propri├ętaire est trop gentil. Juste les toilettes et la douche qui sont sur palier.
