Corona virus update:

It is sometimes difficult to keep track of the changes to corona virus regulations, but generally, all walks in Scotland are open but some areas are in different tiers and movement between tiers is discouraged. It would be best to check your local regulations before travelling.

The Walks

This site is about shorter walks, places that you can take your dog for an hour or two and enjoy the countryside. We are not about Munros and spending 9 hours climbing mountains, though there is nothing wrong with long hard walks. For these walks you might need a good pair of walking shoes, but not climbing boots and crampons.
What do I call a good walk? First, I need somewhere to park my car. Then I wanted a walk that is safe for Meche the terrier. No walking alongside roads for any distance and preferrably somewhere she could walk without needing to be on a lead. Then I like a convenient poo bin. I'm a responsible dog walker, but I'd rather not bring a full poo bag back with me in the car. An interesting walk is also nice, not just a walk over a field. We like woods and Meche especially liked splashing through streams chasing stones. A bonus is a cafe or pub where I can enjoy a well earned coffee or pint after the walk.

The walks can be accessed from either the drop down menus in the yellow buttons at the top of the screen, or from the red buttons on the maps below. On the maps, if you hover over the red buttons with your mouse, you will see an image of each walk
