Scotland Resources


Scotland is a long established destination for the outdoor enthusiast, most likely due to its wonderfully varied landscapes, from mountains to beaches, each as beautiful as the next.

We publish walking guidebooks for most parts of the country, from the Far West to The Border Country, Torridon to The Galloway Hills. We also have titles for many long distance walking trails in Scotland, including The West Highland Way, The Great Glen Way, 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.

Likewise, if peak-bagging is your thing then you really need look no further. With Munros and Corbetts, as well as Ben Nevis and Glen Coe Scotland really is heaven for hillwalkers. And for the budding mountaineer, Winter Climbs in the Cairngorms and Ben Nevis and Glen Coe are also fantastic winter activities.

Scotland is also the place for island-hopping. The Isles of Mull, Skye, Arran, Harris and Lewis, to name a few, are all packed with walking opportunities that don’t require a head for heights.
