Hill Walking Scotland

Walk down from the hills to a warm and cosy home

hillwalkerThousands of people come to Scotland every year to walk in its spectacular hills.  Whether you want the challenge of a Munro, or to stroll a lowland slope, it’s a truly great place for hill walking.  And your own holiday cottage can be an ideal base for a wide range of day-long walks, promising you a warm and comfortable place to rest your feet, whatever time you make it back!

There are challenging hills, and glorious rambling, all over Scotland, from the rolling green pastures of the Scottish Borders to the rugged moors of Highland and Caithness.  Of course, the ‘Munro Baggers’ can get obsessive as they criss-cross the country from Galloway to Aberdeenshire and Perthshire to Skye – but you don’t have to do it that way!  A cottage in Argyll for a week will give you plenty of scope to stretch those legs!
