Scottish Coast to Coast Walk

  • Walk across Scotland through ever-changing landscapes
  • Enjoy a fireside dram at the end of an unforgettable day
  • Finish at the foot of Ben Nevis - Scotland's highest mountain
  • Traverse the incomparable Rannoch Moor
  • Enjoy hearty dinners at cosy Highland hotels
Traverse Scotland from Coast to Coast on foot. Take on a classic journey from Perth to Fort William across the moors, mountains and rivers of the central Scottish Highlands. The Scottish Coast to Coast walk visits charming highland towns, remote hotels, quiet glens and wide open moors. All touched by history, people and stories. The Scottish Coast to Coast Walk starts in the elegant city of Perth and follows the River Tay to Dunkeld and Aberfeldy. The route meanders to Kenmore before heading into the empty, and majestic, countryside of Fortingall, Kinloch Rannoch, Rannoch Station and Kingshouse. At Kingshouse you join the West Highland Way to Kinlochleven and then Fort William, the end of your Scottish Coast to Coast Walk. Whilst the incomparable scenery of the Scottish Highlands is the number one draw there are numerous other points of interest to explore on your journey across Scotland; prehistoric settlements, medieval churches, beautiful cathedrals, restored Crannogs, ancient clan battlefields and more. But the walking is only half the story. On your coast to coast journey you will also discover delicious locally sourced salmon, smokey whiskies, charming highland hotels and the warmest of welcomes.
