On Conival in Assynt

Hiking routes on Scotland's mountains

Hill-walking and scrambling routes on Scotland's mountains

The routes are grouped below into regions to enable you to find something to hike over in the area that you're visiting.

Most of the mountains on the islands of Arran, Skye, Jura, Eigg and Rum are wild and rough with some being technically very challenging. In contrast, the hills on Mull and the Outer Hebridean isles of Uist and Harris are more gentle where more relaxed hiking can be enjoyed.

Some long walks into wild area to reach mountains with wonderful, distant views.

Long chains of peaks enable multi-Munro and Corbett bagging days with superb views.

Vast areas of high moorland and artic-tundra sit above craggy dark corries.

Around Glencoe, Etive, Laggan and Nevis, rugged peaks sit in areas steeped in history.

Popular hills and mountains, typically with well-defined paths, introduce many people to the pleasures of hill-walking and climbing.

No Munros, but plenty of other hills with character. The remote areas in Galloway give way to more accessible hills nearing the populated Central Belt.
