As one of the last bastions of the truly wild, Scotland remains a favourite for the more adventurous among us looking to brave the elements and explore the beauty our country has to offer.
From the dramatic highlands to the rugged coastal trails, our stunning country has a huge amount to offer. With this in mind, we at Kingdom Coatings decided to put a quick list together of our top four walks throughout Scotland.
Stretching over 117 miles, the Fife coastal path has a huge amount to offer along its trails. Catering to a range of difficulties, ranging from charming and level trails to more wild and demanding sections.
You can spend time exploring the cosmopolitan streets of St. Andrews or make your way along the rugged cliffsides and stunning beaches that the Fife area is known for; whatever your tastes, this coastal walk has it.
Looking North-West, the Great Glen Way focuses around the fault line splitting the highlands and the lowlands and offering walkers a mystical trip through the forests and glens of this wild section of the Scottish countryside.
Many walkers take the walk in stages and begin their journey from one of the towns dotted along the trail. Expect to traverse the forests around Loch Ness, Loch Lochy and the towpath of the Caledonian Canal.
At 1010 metres high, the Saddle is truly a test of endurance for the more adventurous walkers in Scotland, however, the pay-off is truly stunning for those who make it to the top.
Not for the faint of heart, the area is famed for the Forcan Ridge, a ridgeline connecting the Saddle top to its neighbour Meallan Odhar. Once you reach the top, you will be great with magnificent views across the Five Sisters of Kintail.
As the UK’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis is the crown jewel for serious walkers and climbers looking for a challenge in the British Isles. Towering over the tiny town of Fort William, the walk itself will take around six to seven hours to complete, just be prepared for a few sit downs along the way!
At Kingdom Coatings, we’re extremely proud of our beautiful, rugged environment, yet with such a wild country comes pretty wild weather. With this in mind, our quality roof coatings will ensure your roof can battle the elements, making it as rugged and strong as the country within it resides.
