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

The WorKit Centre

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

Great shop for work gear

It's good

Avertical World Climbing Centre

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

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.

Great climbing wall, large bouldering section with moon climb area, auto-belay climbing and lead climb areas. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

World Of Survival

Bridgend of Lintrathen, Dundee DD3, UK – 01575 560215

5 stars all the way for World of Survival. I've ordered from them a couple of times and have received excellent service at every turn. They have very competitive prices and every UK order ships within 24 hours for only 1.95. I ordered a British military Crusader cook set with the Osprey 1L water bottle, the Osprey plastic cup, the stainless steel cooking cup, The Crusader cooker, the BCB lid for the cooking cup and a BCB midi firesteel all contained in the BCB camo pouch for only 44.95. Great price! I have a new "go to" shop for my bushcraft supplies now. Highly recommended, give 'em a try.

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..
