Walking in Scotland

Walking in Scotland is a stunning experience. It is one of the finest countries in the world for a walking holiday due to its unique landscape.

DSC01566-smWalking in the Scottish hills and mountains is an experience you will never forget and there are many fine coastal, river and loch-side walks too. I offer all of these in my walking itineraries.

On my walks I talk about the local history of the area and we look at the flora and fauna. The level of walking I offer falls in to the easy to moderate range. This level of walking still provides spectacular scenery and some of the finest walking you will experience.

I can organise a walking tour of Scotland whether it is a day tour from Edinburgh or an extended walking holiday of the Highlands and Islands.

I have a wealth of experience of walking in Scotland having been an active walker (hiker) for twelve years. I have walked many routes in Perthshire and this is my preferred choice on a day tour from Edinburgh. For the rest of Scotland I have walked all over the Highlands and the Isle of Skye and have many favoured routes.

Reclassification of the list by the Scottish Mountaineering Club has varied over the years but they did agree on one more, so the official number of Munros is now 284!

The accommodation I use on my walking tours is of a high standard, welcomes walkers and offer hearty Scottish food.

My walking tours of Scotland can include Munros. Some I would put in the moderate range where the summit is accessible after a relatively easy up-hill hike.

All of my walking holidays in Scotland are tailor-made to your level and your requirements.
