Walking in Scotland

Submitted by George Farquhar on Mon, 2011-01-10

Scotland is a hillwalker’s paradise, with some of the finest mountains and scenery in the British Isles. Here you will find a wealth of walks for hillwalkers of all abilities, from easy low-level walks to more difficult mountain scrambles. This website contains some of my favourite walks in Scotland, each walk being accompanied by instructions, a map and photographs.

Grades and Times for Walks

Due to feedback from visitors to this site, we have tried to grade the walks and give a total time to allow for each walk. We have based the grades and times on factors such as height climbed, difficulty of the terrain and ease of navigation. Obviously these are intended only as rough guides and depend very much on your own level of fitness, and whether or not you break up the walks by taking photographs, enjoying the wildlife and scenery, or by having a picnic. We hope this helps visitors to this site make a more informed decision about the walks.


Glasgow: this is a selection of my favourite walks in the hills north of Glasgow, ranging from easy strolls round country parks to climbing Scotland’s most southerly Munro.
Callander: a couple of favourite walks from the Trossachs town of Callander.
Glencoe: there is currently only one walk on this page, but we do intend to add more, so be patient.
Skye: these pages contain a variety of walks on the island of Skye, from the Storr Summit to a walk in the Cuillin.
Sutherland: We have included a climb up Scotland’s most north-westerly Munro, Ben Hope, as well as lower-level walks above the sea-cliffs at Faraid Head.
Wester Ross: this may be your favourite holiday destination is Assynt, and we have included mountains such as Suilven and Stac Pollaidh, as well as some lower-level walks.

Public Transport

Transport to all the walks on this site has been by car. However, we are frequently asked about the possibility of travelling to these walks by public transport, so we have tried to put together some information on transport to specific walks as well as links to public transport in Scotland. If there is no information on public transport for a walk, that doesn’t mean that public transport is not available, just that we haven’t managed to find any information yet.
