This area of diverse landscapes has the greatest variety of walking in Scotland. In the Highland glens there are routes beside lochs, along wooded rivers and tumbling water falls. The hundreds of miles of marked trails and many signposted rights-of-way mean there is an enormous choice of walks. And with dozens of picturesque villages it is easy to find a tearoom or inn for refreshments.
