Scottish Trail Running
Trail running for everyone, close to town & far afield.
70 routes for the off-road runner: these tried and tested paths and tracks cover the whole of Scotland, including the islands.
This guide takes runners on a journey of discovery that starts in suburbia and crosses every kind of runnable terrain to reach remote glens and far-flung islands. Short, simple circuits close to town will suit beginners while ultra marathons through Scotland’s wildest mountains will test even the most experienced runner. The runs are graded to help progressive development of the skills and confidence needed to tackle more challenging routes.
