Walking Opportunities

The ‘KA Walk’ programme has been established to create a supportive environment for you to start to enjoy the many benefits of being physically active. And it’s FREE!

Walkers of all ages and abilities are welcome you can walk with family and friends, learn more about your local area and meet other people. Our walks are approximately 1 hour and are at a leisurely pace. We meet at various times and places across North Ayrshire.

Organised sport and exercise can now take place in a group with a maximum of 30. KA Leisure may continue to work with a reduced capacity for some walks and encourage everyone to book the walks in advance. Social distancing and Scottish Government guidance applies.

Our ‘buddy’ walks or 1:1 walks are still available in a limited capacity.
