When & Where

Please see the individual walks below for times and locations

Move More Western Isles is a partnership between Macmillan Cancer Support, CNES (Western Isles Council) and NHS.

Move More Western Isles are currently looking for volunteer walk leaders to support people affected by cancer attending local health walks.

All Macmillan walks are led by a trained Macmillan volunteer walk leader so walkers can benefit from cancer specific support. The walk leaders lead the walks at a pace and distance that is appropriate for everyone taking part. These Macmillan walks are short, sociable and provide a supportive, friendly environment for anyone affected by cancer to become more active. People living with cancer, their friends, family and carers are all welcome to join the groups.

Currently participants in the Move More Western Isles programme can choose from a range of activities including Circuit Classes, Easy Aqua, Walking Groups, 1:1 Physical Activity Advice and Support and Gentle Movement Classes
