Enjoy hillwalking with guided walks

Walk-ability is a registered Scottish charity, based in Aberdeen, that takes disabled people and their carers hillwalking.

Over the years we have developed considerable expertise in guiding visually-impaired people in the hills. These walks range from gentle strolls up hills such as Scolty (near Banchory) to serious ascents of mountains as large as Ben Nevis! Our clients range from those with various degrees of visual impairment (through macular degeneration perhaps) to those who have no sight whatsoever.

All the walks are led by one or more fully qualified guides and a number of volunteer helpers. Safety is paramount, so it is important that we have a good ratio of guides to clients.
No charge is made, but – as a charity – we won’t turn down any donations!

There is a walk held on the first Tuesday of every summer month:

• April 3, Scolty
• May 1, Brimmond Hill
• June 5, Hill of Fare
• July 3, Kerloch
• August 7, Bennachie
• September 4, Clachnaben

We can also arrange specific walks if required.
