Walking

Ruins of house Ladder HillsWith over one hundred miles of waymarked trails, you can enjoy a short stroll, escape into the hills to enjoy the scenery or follow in the footsteps of former whisky smugglers from days gone by. For the hardened hill walker the Cairngorms has some of the best on offer in Scotland, with four of Scotland’s five highest mountains and forty two other munros (hills over 3,000 feet high). There are many local guides and mountain leaders who can accompany you and who will be able to tailor your walks to your ability and favourite themes (wildlife, the whisky trail, local history, etc)
