A superb walk in the Cuillins, with breathtaking views of the sea and a charming little Loch at the end.
The only challenging part is the end of the climb, where you need to climb up some scree for the last 300 metres.
A very nice hike along the water and mountains in the Cuillin.
The Quiraing combines both majestic mountains and the mysteries of the Isle of Skye. The landscapes are magnificent.
A circular route to the 18th century arches of the Fyrish Monument. After a short distance my route leaves the busy Jubilee Path to make a gradual ascent up the shoulder of Cnoc Fyrish. The monument itself is a true work of art and forms a significant part of local history. My return route takes you through an area of mature forestry teeming with wildlife.
The West Highland Way is the most established of Scotland’s long-distance walking routes. This is the fifth of a five stage route, staying at prebooked accomodation along the way. A simple route, with some climbing but mostly sticking to streams and rivers to walk through the valleys whilst appreciating the high mountains from below.
This is an ascent of the South ridge of Bla Bhienn starting from and returning to Elgol. It includes the cliff top walk to Camasunary Bay, followed by the ridge. The views are spectacular and the ridge is one of the most memorable mountain days to be had.
Here is a magnificent peak held in high regard by our British friends, Ben Nevis. This summit, though in itself not very high relatively speaking, requires a significant climb in altitude because it starts almost at sea level. During the ascent, the views are breathtaking.
A very short, easy walk to do late afternoon (when most walkers have come back down off the mountain) so you can enjoy the silence and evening light.
A short walk around the Fairy Pools, so you can see them from close up, followed by a tranquil walk in the valley, away from the crowds.
An easy, family-friendly walk in the Cairngorms National Park.
A nice trip around Loch Affric near Inverness. Not at all difficult and with some beautiful landscapes.
A very interesting alternative, full of variations, to the normal route to reach the summit of the famous Ben Nevis, the highest peak in Great Britain. It is a wilder variant than the normal route. Without being too technical it remains a solid hike. It allows walkers the opportunity to contemplate the very famous north face of Ben Nevis.
A day adventure over to Horse Island. Make sure you cross from Lamb Island - the first little one - to Horse Island at low tide.
This walk in the mountains north of Fort William visits the summits of Aonach Mor and Aonach Beag, both of which exceed 4,000 feet above sea level. The views on a good day are stunning especially of Ben Nevis. The route contains plenty of ascent and you should remember that suitable clothing is essential so you can cope with rapid changes in weather. There are also snow cornices to be considered.
This high mountain walk visits the second highest summit in Scotland - Ben Macdui. In addition the route visits some of the wild country surrounding this peak including the summit of Cairngorm. Do choose a good day to complete this walk as navigation can be difficult for inexperienced walkers.
This Highland walk visits the most north-easterly point of mainland Britain. The coast around Duncansby Head is dramatic and full of bird-life in season.
This walk lies within the Cairngorm National Park and visits the lochs and lochans that lie between Loch Morlich and the twon of Aviemore. The route offers a number of alternatives for the return to the start and provides an excellent walk if low cloud is limiting higher level walks in the mountains.
