Where can I go?

In Scotland we can enjoy access to most land and inland water provided we behave responsibly by following the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.

The Access Code lays out the responsibilities of those accessing land and land owners, and is based on three principles which apply to all: to respect the rights of others, to care for the environment, and to take responsibility for our own actions.

This web page highlights the rights and responsibilities of walkers: https://www.outdooraccess-scotland.scot/practical-guide-all/walking

Websites with lots of (hill) walking routes in Scotland:
Useful guidebooks:
  • Pocket Mountain have published pocket guides by Nick Williams for different areas of Scotland including the Southern Highlands, West Highlands, Central Highlands, Northern Highlands, the Islands, and the Cairngorms. I like that there is information about how to get to the start of the walk by public transport (if possible). These cost about ¬£5.

Please bear in mind that guide books should be used alongside a map and the knowledge of how to use it. You can find out about essential navigation skills of the Mountaineering Scotland website or get in touch if you’d like some coaching.
