Best outdoor activities in Scotland
Scotland is famous for its beautiful hiking trails. The landscapes lend themselves to it divinely and you will discover a resplendent nature. Coastal paths or paths crossing valleys and along lakes: its many paths will lead you through the whole region. One of the most popular routes is the West Highland Way.
Looking for more adrenaline? Go mountaineering! You can try your hand at "Munro bagging", an activity that involves climbing the Scottish peaks reaching more than 915 meters in height. It will go up hard and it is better to leave well equipped! The most famous peak is that of Ben Nevis.
Touring bike or mountain bike
Rather than walking, you can always go by bike. And even on two wheels, you will decide the level of effort. You will find many cycle routes that will take you through various parts of Scotland. One of the busiest trails is the one that leads to Butt of Lewis from Vatersay. 297 km long, it mainly takes asphalt roads.
Do you like thrills and are looking for something more original? Make your way to the Devilla Forest and get on your V.T.T for a sensational adventure.
Kayaking or Rafting
Scotland is full of lakes and rivers perfect for a canoeing or kayaking trip on a balmy day. For example, you can cruise the River Tay, one of Scotland's best-known rivers that will appeal to both experienced and beginners. You can also go to Lake Lomond for a more touristy experience or even explore the Great Glen Canoe Trail and try your hand at canoeing in the open sea!
You can also opt for rafting and experience a slightly more lively descent. Rafting is the more "dynamic" version of kayaking! Cairngorms National Park lends itself particularly well to this activity and you can descend its white waters throughout the year.
