Car Free Walks newsletter 17

Our Spring 2015 newsletter is now out

June 2015 - 

Walk here ...

It’s a name that gets many hillwalkers a bit misty-eyed.

Knoydart is famous as a place of wild walks, and it more than lives up to its reputation. Whether you walk in from Glenfinnan or get the ferry from Mallaig to Inverie, there are numerous options for short, long or multi-day adventures.

Look out for a blog on Tim’s trip to Knoydart, which will be online shortly. And the Knoydart Foundation has plenty more information about the area. 

Been on a great walk? Submit it at:

Prize draw

Ever fancied having a personalised map of your favourite corner of the UK? One that doubles as a survival blanket? Our old friends at Aqua3 are offering five customised ‘strip’ maps for Car Free Walks members. These work particularly well for linear or coastal walks, but are also a resilient style for your regular walking area.

Simply submit a walk between now and the end of June and you will be entered into the prize draw. And the more walks you add, the more chances to win!

A big thank you to Terry Abraham and Striding Edge for providing prizes for the last prize draw, and congratulations to our winners. 

The wheels on the bus…

…will be going round and round with even more vigour between 29 June and 5 July, which is Catch The Bus week 2015. To get more information, register for updates at

If you want to know when a new walk is online, follow us on Twitter or ‘like’ our Facebook page. If that’s not your thing, no worries – they are all on the website. We also put up photos, news and any other titbits, so please keep sending them in.
