Historic landscapes of high mountains and remote glens. World-famous for its awesome scenery, long and tangled history, and fiercely proud culture, Scotland has long been a magnet for walkers keen to take on the challenges of its rugged landscape. It’s a beautiful wilderness that draws you in to explore, time after time.
Nearly 7,000 miles of coastline and hundreds of islands provide endlessly changing vistas that will take your breath away.
In this land of contrasts, the Orkney Islands have a distinctly Nordic feel. This archipelago of around 70 islands is home to some of the best archaeological sites in Europe, with neolithic relics dating back over 5,000 years.
Orkney also offers particularly wonderful coastal walking, with the Old Man of Hoy, a red sandstone sea stack, standing proudly against the Atlantic. For birdwatchers, this landscape is unsurpassed, with an amazing range of seabird species to be seen on its cliffs and beaches.
Ramblers Walking Holidays invites you to join one of its small groups to explore scenic Scotland. Your Ramblers Walking Holidays leader will ensure you have safe and enjoyable walking throughout your holiday. Take a look below for our selection of walking holidays in Scotland.
