Interested in starting up a new Buggy Walk?

You can join one of our Walk Leader training courses which take place all over Scotland. You will learn about the benefits of being active, what the roles and responsibilities of a walk leader are, and how to plan and risk assess safe walking routes for your group. Visit our training pages to find out about courses and booking information. If you can’t see a course in your area, please email our training team who will be happy to help.

The local Scottish Health Walk Network project in your area could help you get started or you could join the network for all the support you'll need.
