Spring into Summer - Explore the Isle of Man with Manx Walks.
Manx Walks on Thursdays - a leisurely ladies’ walk with time for lunch at the end. 
Spring is in the air - albeit at 45 mph sometimes, but the days are getting longer, and the temperatures are getting milder. Let’s get those boots on and spring into summer.  There’s nothing better than being out and about at this time of year, taking in the sights, sounds and smells of nature. There are birds singing and wildflowers coming into bloom: wild garlic, daffodils, primroses, and bluebells. 
If you’re a visitor, a day out on a guided walk is a leisurely way to explore the island. Joining a group that includes Manx residents is a good way to find out more about the island - or the skeet in local parlance. If you are a local, it’s a great way to rediscover the island and explore places you haven’t been to for years. If you have recently retired or gone part-time, this is an easy-going outdoor activity in friendly company. Walking is inexpensive and fun, and it’s got loads of health benefits.
Manx Walks offers weekly, small group, guided walks that are island-wide, gentle, approximately 4-6 miles long and take approximately 3 hours. At the end of the walk, you’ll have the option of joining the group for lunch or snacks at a nearby pub or café.

Group size is limited, so if you would like to join any of the walks, you will need to reserve a place. To do so, please email catriona@manxwalks.im. Once you’re signed up, I will send you information about where we will meet, footwear etc. The schedule may change, depending on weather conditions, trail closures, or as requested. If I decide that a walk is not suitable because of weather conditions, I may substitute another route and would notify people who have signed up for a walk. 
If there are no spaces left on the Thursday walks, take a look at the Friday walks that Manx Walks and Walking.im put on together. They are larger groups and slightly longer walks (usually about 6 miles), but the pace is still gentle, with plenty of time to stop and take in the views and enjoy the day. 
Each walk is £10 pp (payable on the day).  walks 
start at 10:00am and finish approx. 2 to 3 hours later.
I look forward to meeting you and taking a walk together.
