Walking holidays in Scotland

Scottish Rural Breaks

Walking holidays can be combined with self catering cottages for weekend breaks or longer holiday breaks and campsites provide excellent facilities for walkers wanting to carry thier bedding in a rucksack. Some people find that caravanning is a good way to go walking as a support team can move the caravan and meet you at the end of a good day's trek.

Staying in a holiday cottage for your walking holiday offers many benefits - properties are often in close proximity to popular walking routes, although you'll also find locations off the beaten track if you want some peace and solitude. Walking holidays in Scotland offer many options:

Short breaks in the countryside get you out of the city and you certainly don't need a tour operator or a travel agent to arrange a walking weekend, although guided walks can save you time and get you the ultimate walking experience. Scotland is a popular choice, but England also has many enjoyable routes - popular destinations include The New Forest, The Forest of Dean, The Yorkshire Dales or The Peak District. Why not mix in a bit of pony trekking, skiing or golfing? - a bargain holiday for all outdoor activities! There is fantastic tourist information available for walkers on holiday - many child friendly walks are routed and varying grades of walks depending on age and experience. Even if it is a last minute decision, many late availability accommodation establishments will let you stay for a walking holiday.
