Coronavirus: while this pandemic persists, our governments advise against all non-essential travel: you should not travel to make any use of an SGT. Visit the Scottish Outdoor Access Code website for specific guidance on accessing the outdoors in Scotland. Check also the VisitScotland general guidance and advice page.

Whether you are a walker, cyclist, paddler or horse-rider, Scotland’s Great Trails await you. These well-managed trails are clearly waymarked, run largely off-road and offer a choice of welcoming visitor services. Ranging in length from 24-210 miles (40-340 km), many are suitable for short breaks as well as end-to-end expeditions. Come and explore Scotland’s scenery and wildlife, and experience our amazing history and culture.
