Walking Group

St Fillan’s has a very active (but not unduly arduous) walking group that usually meets on the last Saturday of the month. It usually ends up in pub or cafe. In the summer there are additional evening walks ending with a meal in a pub or restaurant.

There is also a strollers group which meets occasionally for a wander to a local cafe. Use the Make Contact box on the right side of this page to ask for more information. You do not have to be a member of St Fillan’s to take part on these walks. We welcome visitors.
