Looking for an active holiday?
Visiting Scotland this summer is a popular choice as the dollar offers up great value in the UK. And for those travelers looking for an active vacation, Scotland offers a nice variety of walking experiences where beautiful scenery and wildlife can be enjoyed. From family strolls to long distance hikes among the Munros, there are lots of options to inspire anyone looking for a good trek.
The best place to start planning your walking holiday in Scotland is by visiting: http://walking.visitscotland.com/. Search by theme for a walk that interests you, whether it’s a wildlife walk, history/heritage walk, food & drink walk, paths to adventure, family trails or urban walking. To narrow down your search, you can also select a region in Scotland and the duration of walk you’re looking for, whether it’s a day or a week long!
To give you a sneak peak, this month’s walk is The Boarder Abbeys Way, covering 64.5 miles, 5 days and four magnificent ruined abbeys of Melrose, Dryburgh, Kelso and Jedburgh. Happy trails!

I had a few days in the middle of a London semester and hiked the West Highland Way a couple of summers back.
Had a wonderful time and sang the “Loch Lomond” song at least a thousand times!
