From a guided shortwalk to a multiday walking adventure, I'm here to help you get outside and get walking.

You can join in one of my planned activities or you can ask me to organise  a walking experience just for you.

I can teach you  to read a map, to plan and navigate a walking routes. Develop the confidence to do your own thing. This can lead to a nationally recognised qualification.

I have walked with Katherine on a regular basis for several years and always found her to be an excellent leader knowing exactly where we are and where the route is. She is good company on a walk and shows awareness of any member of the group who might be struggling. I would certainly recommend her as a walk leader.

I'm Katherine Grugeon and I love walking in the great British outdoors. I'm a qualified mountain leader, navigation tutor award holder with an outdoor first aid qualification and I'm fully insured to to take you walking. With my dog Polly I travel around the UK to walk up hills, mountains and on moorland.  Together we have walked the Pennine way and Offa's Dyke but  equally enjoy exploring the delights of the wonderful countryside in Somerset, Wiltshire and Dorset, within a stones throw of home.  I've got lots of tried and tested routes, but I'm always looking for new places to walk. To find out what I've been up to check out my  blog, facebook page or instagram account.
