Scottish National Trail

Devised by outdoors writer and broadcaster Cameron McNeish, the Scottish National Trail runs the length of Scotland from the southerly Scottish Borders to the wild Cape Wrath headland, taking walkers along established footpaths and into more demanding terrain.

The route connects many of Scotland’s Great Trails taking in sections of St Cuthbert's Way, the West Highland WayRob Roy Way and the Great Glen Way as well as following the whole length of the Southern Upland Way.

Walked from north to south the trail becomes progressively more challenging as it heads into the Highlands, ending with the unofficial and unmarked Cape Wrath Way which will test the mettle of even the most determined walkers.

Despite its seemingly daunting length and some tougher sections, the Scottish National Trail offers a variety of walking opportunities for all to enjoy as it snakes its way through Scotland along towpaths, through glens and other hills from the borders to the sea.
