Publisher Comments:

Frommer’s Best Walking in Scotlandintended for people for whom a good hike is an integral part of their vacation plans. It highlights the “best-of-the-best” of Scotland’s many hiking choices, focusing on accessible day hikes for a variety of abilities, plus some of the country’s most popular multi-day options. The book will follow Frommer’s usual highly organized approach: clear, thorough instructions on how to prepare for their trip; detailed breakdowns of the hikes themselves with easy-to-understand route instructions; star ratings and reasons to go; and lots of maps. In addition, the book will provide accommodation and dining options geared to the outdoor enthusiast; GPS directions for trailheads and route wayfinding; and a full-color naturalist’s guide for wildlife identification.

 In addition to the hikes themselves, each chapter will contain: hike index, trailhead map, 1-2 page write-up on the unique characteristics of the area, and an accommodation and dining guide.

 The hikes will cover the entire country, including:

  • Beautiful day hikes that include small towns only an hour or two from Edinburgh and Glasgow
  • The incredible scenery and variety of the Borders region, with everything from half-day strolls to the world-renowned 340 km Southern Upland Way
  • The magnificent coastline and forest walks of Galloway, with bustling market towns and peaceful villages dotted throughout.
  • The dazzling highland scenery and well-marked trails of Perthshire
  • The wild glens and sparkling lochs that wind their way through Loch Lomond, Scotland’s first national park
  • A diverse choice of landscapes near Argyll and the whiskey distilleries of Oban
  • An array of easy walks that combine castles, Speyside whisky and coastal trails near Inverness and Aberdeen
  • Some of Scotland’s most famous, challenging and spectacular routes through Cairngorms National Park
  • The unspoilt wilderness and postcard-perfect scenery of the Western Highlands and Skye, including the opportunity to climb Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain
  • The sublime landscapes and uncountable lochs of the Northern Highlands
  • Step into the authentic Gaelic culture of the outer Hebrides, including the beaches and rugged beauty of Stornaway
  • The dramatic cliffs and Norse archeological sites of the Orkney and Shetland Islands
