Father of the National Parks
There are some great long distance walks in Scotland the most famous being the West Highland Way from Glasgow ( Milganvie) to Ft William through some amazing scenery. This was extended to Inverness some years ago under the Great Glen Way banner,Nessie spotting is an added extra!
The Fife Coastal Path has proven popular over the last ten years, I particularly like Crail to St Andrews, the approach to The Old Grey Toon is wonderful. FCP goes right passed the door at Caiplie, using the 95 bus you can do loads of great walking from the house as the bus route runs parallel to the path along the coast, so you are never more than a mile from the bus route for getting home then starting off again in the same place.
A new path has arrived marking the 100th anniversary of the conservationist John Muirs death, the John Muir Way opened in April. The 134-mile-long trail runs coast-to-coast from Muir's hometown of Dunbar all the way to Loch Lomond, passing by castles, hills and canals along the way. Walking the length of the Way will take eight to 12 days (or four to six by bike). You could of course turn North on TWHW at Loch Lomond and on to Inverness....be brave!
More great reasons to visit/stay in Scotland this year coming soon.........
