Scotland is without a doubt one of the best countries in the world for walking. A combination of wonderful scenery, easy access and huge variety within a small area means there is something here for walkers of all levels. Whether it’s a long day in the high mountains with nothing but eagles and deer for company, a windswept walk on a remote beach on the wild west coast or a short stroll round a loch to a village pub, Scotland has walks to suit every interest, ability and mood.
Walkers’ ability and fitness levels vary greatly – what is an easy stroll for some people can be a serious challenge for others. To try and help you find the perfect activity level for your walking trip we grade our walks. Please remember that in poor weather or wet and muddy conditions all walks can seem a bit harder than when the sun is shining!
