Self-guided walking holidays in Scotland

Scotland is blessed with a dramatic landscape and extensive network of waymarked trails that make it a world-class hiking destination. Its Highlands, lochs and glens offer exhilarating hiking in the fresh mountain air. History and heritage are all around and you are never too far from a welcoming pub or inn to refresh yourself with a ‘wee dram’!

The West Highland Way is Scotland’s most popular long-distance trail, and a great introduction to the bens, glens and lochs of the Highlands. The Great Glen Way takes up where the West Highland Way left off. On this route you walk from Ben Nevis to Inverness, the ‘Capital of the Highlands’. It follows the route of the Caledonian Canal, passing the shores of the famous Loch Ness. Both routes are suitable for novices, as well as experienced hikers.

The walking routes in Scotland are well signposted, mostly off-road and traffic free, and have a range of visitor services along the way.

All of our hiking holidays in Scotland include hand-picked accommodation, luggage transportation, detailed route notes, maps and GPS tracks.
