So why not have that rural retreat you always dreamed about and surround yourself with scenery that will take your breath away!
Here are a few of our favourite walking break routes in Scotland to help you on your way:
Western Highlands and Skye-
This is arguably where you’ll find much of the picture-postcard scenery for which walking in Scotland is so renowned. On the mainland, long sea lochs creep deep inland, overshadowed by mountains. The unspoilt peninsulas to the west are regarded as amongst some of the last unspoilt wilderness areas of Europe – rugged land where nature commands.
Cairngorms National Park-
The Cairngorms National Park is Scotland’s second National Park and the UK’s largest. Covering one of the most spectacular landscapes in the UK, it was forged by glaciers over 10,000 years ago and is an excellent place to experience walking in Scotland. This stunning area covers a diverse range of topography, from wild arctic tundra on the high mountains to ancient pinewoods – surviving parts of the once extensive Caledonian Forest. Lower down in the glens is an excellent place to go for hill walking in Scotland.
