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 sometimes ends up in a pub or cafe, or having a picnic lunch on the way. 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.
