Scottish Hills, Tallest Mountains & Highest Peaks

Scotland's mountains and hills offer some of the most spectacular sights in the world, and they create the perfect playground for walking, hiking, sightseeing, and enjoying the wilds of our raw Scottish landscapes. Contrary to popular belief, not all our peaks are found in rural and remote locations. Although getting away from the bustling cities may be what you're looking for, you don't have to venture too far from civilisation to feel like you are truly back to nature; some of the highest mountains in Scotland are only an hour or so drive from the city. 

Discover Scottish mountains and hills and conquer Scotland's highest mountain ranges.
