Lesser-Known Walks in the UK
The popular trails all have a good reason to be so well-loved, and of course, it's a great feeling to check one of the "classic" trails off your list. However, there are many hidden corners and lesser-known gems that you NEED to add to your adventure agenda.
It's hard to believe that Arran isn't Scotland's number one destination. It literally has everything; dramatic mountains, coasts, wildlife, warm hospitality, forest trails, and it's so easy to get to. All of this is packaged into one small island, for a pocket version of everything great about Scotland.
When planning a walk in the Scottish Highlands, the first instinct is usually "West Highland Way", which of course is one of our favorite walks and a real shining star. However, the Rob Roy Way (which sprouts from the Loch Lomond section of the West Highland Way) is probably equally scenic, much quieter, and another wonderful way to make a journey deep into the Highlands (this time, towards Pitlochry). Perfection!
Some of Britain's best beaches can be found on the Northumberland Coast. There's a different pace of life in this corner of the UK, and some really fascinating history. Expect pretty fishing villages, sweeping sands, and the east coast typically experiences the lowest rainfall in Britain, so you can expect some sunshine too!
Perhaps overshadowed by it's neighbor, the South West Coast Path, Dartmoor National Park is a brooding inland walker's paradise of towering tors and wild moorland. We offer a walking itinerary taking in both Dartmoor and the Southern Coast of England (the Jurassic Coast), for the best of all worlds!
