About Wight Sole

Wight Sole is a group of young walkers based on the Isle of Wight. The group is aimed at anyone over the age of 20 but we're not ageist and welcome anyone who's keen on walking in a relaxed atmosphere. We try to arrange a walk every two weeks, generally on Sundays, but also include some social or evening walks particularly in the summer.

Our walks are generally between 5 and 10 miles, taken at a gentle pace and sometimes involve a visit to a pub (or two). Most walks are on the island, often in little visited places, so they are a great way to discover new areas. We also occasionally visit the mainland to meet up with other local Young Ramblers groups.

Anyone is welcome, so if you want to try it out first, feel free to come along to any of the walks on our programme. Our insurance covers non-members for three 'taster' walks, after which we hope you will join the Ramblers. If you attend four or more walks as a non-member you are not covered by our insurance.

We're part of the Ramblers Association which is a registered charity.
