If there's one thing that Scotland can boast in all corners of the country, it's walking routes. There are hundreds you can uncover, but there are a special few that have a spiritual element to them. The Way of St Andrews has been revived as one of the greatest pilgrimages of the world. Choose from ten routes that cover central, south and the east coast of Scotland, all of which range from 6 - 279 km and vary in elevation and terrain so there will be something for everyone. New for summer 2019, the Fife Pilgrim Way is set to cover 64 miles of medieval landmarks, industrial landscapes, and picturesque villages, alongside stunning views and coastal gems, as it weaves its way to St Andrews.
In the Scottish Borders, why not head off along the Borders Abbeys Way? Joining up the magnificent abbeys of Kelso, Melrose, Jedburgh and Dryburgh, this 64.5-mile circular route is one for the explorers, taking in the magical landscapes of the south of Scotland that will leave you in awe. For something different, why not take a fluffy alpaca for a walk? Head to Kelso in the Scottish Borders where you can meet or trek with the friendly residents of Beirhope Alpacas amongst the stunning backdrop of the Cheviot Hills - a therapeutic afternoon with a cuddly companion.
