The magnificent diversity of Scotland’s mountain landscapes is equally matched by the breathtaking scenery and rich wildlife. From the gentle rolling hills of the Lowlands and Central Belt to the majestic beauty of Scotland’s mountains in the Cairngorms and Highlands, there are trails, routes, hill climbs and mountain adventures to suit walkers of all levels.
Scotland’s iconic Munros offer many rewarding walks and opportunities to explore some of the most beautiful and remote habitats in Europe. Many of the greatest Munros can be found in the region of Lochaber and Torridon in the west Highlands of Scotland. The Cairngorms National Park is also very popular with hillwalkers and you will find four of Scotland’s five highest mountains within the park boundaries.
Scotland’s Corbetts can be overlooked by hillwalkers because they fall short of the magic 3,000 ft mark, but many offer stunning views and can be very challenging to climb, often rivalling the Munros. Popular places to climb Corbetts include the Arrochar Alps, in the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, and the Southern Uplands of Scotland.
The Grahams are ideal hills for less experienced hillwalkers and those looking to escape to the country for a gentle walk. The area from Loch Lomond and the Trossachs to Loch Tay has many fantastic Grahams to choose from as do the Borders and the Southern Uplands.
Scotland also has a wide range of beautiful glens to explore from the spectacular mountainous valley of Glen Coe to the stunningly beautiful Glen Affric and the ancient fault line of the Great Glen in the shadow of the UK’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis.
Scotland’s mountains, hills and glens will stir your imagination. So if you are a dedicated ‘Munro bagger’ or someone who prefers the quieter routes amongst the hills, then come and discover the unspoilt wilderness of Scotland’s beautiful mountains.
