Micro Events Participation Statement

OutdoorLads draws your attention to the fact that travelling and being away from home increases the risk of receiving and transmitting Coronavirus, whilst it is present in the UK. You are likely to choose not to participate in OutdoorLads events whilst there is a risk of Coronavirus transmission. However, should you choose to participate in OutdoorLads events whilst the risk is present, you must be aware of and follow the law and government guidelines, both when travelling to and from events as well as when participating in events.

Please note that every person participating should be aware of (and accept) that those members perceived as ‘in charge’ or leading the event are not experts,  do not need to be experts, and are not regarded by OutdoorLads, or themselves as experts, but are amateurs with some experience in the event type and who are happy to impart their knowledge.  Any advice given should be considered with this in mind by the recipient.

By signing up to and attending an OutdoorLads micro event, you are confirming that you have read, understood and accept the content of this statement.

A long overdue visit to the Scottish Borders to climb three of its rolling hills.

With winter approaching and the days getting shorter, we venture south to climb three Donalds (hills over 2000 ft) in the picturesque Scottish Borders. Our circuit of 15km (9.25 miles) will take us over Pykestone Hill (737m), Middle Hill (716m) and Drumelzier Law (668m). Much of the walk is on good tracks or footpaths and should take us around 5 hours to complete. The start point is little more than an hour's drive from Glasgow, Edinburgh or Carlisle.
