Scotland's Great Trails - where will they take you?

Formerly known as Long Distance Routes, Scotland's Great Trails are nationally promoted trails for people-powered journeys. Each is distinctively waymarked, largely off-road and has a range of visitor services. With each trail being at least 25 miles in length, all are suitable for multi-day journeys as well as day trips.

Collectively, the 26 different routes provide over 1700 miles of well managed paths from the Borders to the Highlands, offering great opportunities to explore the best of Scotland's nature and landscapes and to experience our amazing history and culture.
"It’s not necessarily about completing the route, unless that’s what you’re into, it’s about getting out there, coming close to nature and getting your free fix of countryside. They’re easy to follow, anyone can do them and there’s one near you."
