We are a women-only walking group and whilst we will do all we can to ensure that the members in the group are who they say they are, we cannot guarantee it. Like any online community, people can create fake profiles which can occasionally be hard to detect so please use the same caution when meeting people from the group as you would anywhere else on the internet.
If you go on a walk that you are hosting or have joined via the Scottish Women's Walking Group community, you do so entirely at your own risk.
Scottish Women's Walking Group can not be held responsible for anything that may occur on a walk. Neither can another member of the community, including the host of the walk, be held responsible for anything that happens like injury, loss of property or even death. You are participating in an outdoor activity with all the inherent dangers that come with that including injury and death. You are personally responsible for your own safety at all times. We all also have a duty of care towards those we are walking with and other users of the route we are walking.
