Where is it?

Have fun with our  WHERE IS IT? competition. Each month there will be a new photograph for you to guess where it is. Look out for the answer here next month... Have Fun!

Nobody guessed the location of this month’s photo which was taken on Hope St in Castletown.

Good luck with this month’s challenge.


Can I join a walk if I am not a member?

Yes, no problem. You are welcome to join us for up to three ‘taster’ sessions before deciding if you would like to join. Visitors to the Island are also welcome to join us.

Do I need to tell anyone if I am coming for the first time?

It is not necessary to inform us but it would be helpful if the walk leader knows to expect you so if possible please email

How do I join?

Please download the membership application and Standing Order forms by clicking on Forms  at the bottom of the page or alternatively contact

How much will it cost?

The annual subscription for 2020 is £6 which can be paid by Standing Order and is due for renewal on the 1st January each year.

Is it for all ages?

Yes, most definitely as we have walks of all standards and on different days.

What should I wear?

Walking boots or sturdy shoes are strongly advised and bearing in mind our unpredictable climate, waterproofs are generally carried. We advise you to bring a drink and for longer walks, a packed lunch too.

When are the walks?

Full details of each month’s walks are on the ‘Walks’ page.

Are dogs allowed?

No, due to the fact that we often walk across farmland.

Am I insured against personal injury?

No, you walk entirely at your own risk.

How do I know where the walks start from?

The walks details are published in the Spring and Autumn each year and sent to all fully paid up members. Lists are also updated monthly on our WALKS page. There are also lists available in libraries and other places around the Island. All walks finish at the starting point, unless otherwise stated for a linear walk, when arrangements are made to get you back to the start of the walk.

Disclaimer and Information:

Walkers are reminded that they participate at their own risk and should keep behind the leader

This disclaimer is found under the logo on all walks lists and we ask that leaders remind all participants of this before starting each walk.

Walkers to keep to the right on all public roads (unless common sense dictates otherwise) and not deviate from the way-marked footpaths.
Please refer to notes column for information.
Dogs are not permitted.
Difficulties such as broken stiles or blocked Rights of Way should be reported to the Footpaths Officer at
