Step It Up Highland – Walking in Broadford

Step It Up Highland. I often get asked by our many guests what do you do in your spare time. Spare time is a luxury in the Summer months for someone who does  bed and breakfast . Though in Winter months there is more time to relax and enjoy some local activities. Walking with Step It Up Highland sets a model of encouraging the uptake of health walks to enable people in the Highlands to achieve better physical health, improve mental well-being, attain a healthy weight and encourage interaction by socialising with others while enjoying the beautiful natural environment we have in the Highlands.

They do this by recruiting local volunteers to become trained walk leaders, enabling them to share their own passion for walking with others who are less likely to walk regularly and so to encourage joining a local SIUH walking group. They have 30 groups spread across the Highlands, with more in development. All walks are free to attend and are led by trained walk leaders who will welcome and encourage new walkers. On the Isle of Skye we benefit from SIUH walking groups, in Waternish, Broadford & Portree.

I can highly recommend the Step It Up Highland in Broadford, if you are looking to make new friends and get fit in the process this is certainly the activity to achieve it. The group meet on Monday & Thursdays, they set off from the Broadford Hall at 10am and usually do a 1 hour walk on Thursdays. After the walk they have tea and coffee in the hall accompanied by biccies. The walk leaders are Linda Shove  & Gill Roberts, change your life for the better now.  They are a very welcoming friendly group.
