Adventurous July

Now summer is well and truly here, make the most of the long days and embark on a real Scottish adventure! Consult your map, pull on your walking boots or wheel out the bikes. Stevie Christie, Owner of natural adventures organisation Wilderness Scotland, tells us "July is the ideal month to explore: walks along the coast, cycling routes through the countryside, go canoeing on the river Spey or view the Scottish islands by kayak."
