Scotland


Cicerone have an unrivalled range of guidebooks for walking and mountaineering in Scotland. Tackle Scotland’s toughest winter climbs, the summits of the Munros, explore the highlands and islands on long-distance trails, or take a gentle walk in a glen or along the coast. Long distance guidebooks range from waymarked trails such as the Great Glen Way and the West Highland Way, to the full challenges of the Cape Wrath Trail.

Scotland is a long-established destination for the outdoor enthusiast, due to its wonderfully varied landscapes, from mountains to beaches, each as beautiful as the next. All these walking guides cater for a variety of abilities, from short and fairly easy walks to more challenging day walks across rough, sometimes rocky terrain requiring scrambling and good navigation skills. Every walk has an introductory section so you know what to expect.

There are walking guidebooks for most parts of the country, from the Orkney and Shetland Isles in the north to The Scottish Borders, Southern Uplands and Torridon to The Galloway Hills and the Pentland Hills near Edinburgh. To the east there are walking guides for the Cairngorms, and the Angus Glens and Highland Perthshire, while if you're heading for Ben Nevis, then there are 100 walking routes at various altitudes in our Ben Nevis and Glen Coe guide.

We also have titles for many long-distance walking trails in Scotland. Some of the easier long-distance routes are The Great Glen Way, the Borders Abbeys Way, The West Highland Way and the Speyside Way. For and The Cape Wrath Trail. So if you plan to be out for a week, or just an afternoon, you’re certain to be spoilt for choice.

The Hebridean islands offer a wealth of wonderful scenery: the majestic Cuillin mountains on Skye; the otherworldly palm trees on Bute; the marvellous white shell sands on Tiree and Harris.
