(2 of 11)
Highland Disabled Ramblers is a small charity run by volunteers, to enable people with mobility problems to access the countryside in a safe and companionable way.

We organise a programme of leisurely monthly rambles of 3 to 4 miles leaving from different places locally on different days of the week, within a radius of 40 miles of Inverness. (Please click on the link to go to our website for the list of rambles for this year and the days of the week on which the rambles take place.)

Members book scooters in advance, which we transport to the start of each ramble, but they must make their own way to the start. Volunteers ensure the safety of members and provide companionship along the way.

Membership is open to anyone over 18 years. Anyone requiring assistance needs to bring a family member, friend or carer as we do not have qualified carers.

Volunteer van drivers and walking companions are most welcome (references reqd.).
