The Enchanted Forest
You don't have to wait for Scotland walking events to come round. If you prefer doing your own thing, there are lots of fabulous woodland walks around the country. One I have done personally, and which I highly recommend is Auchincruive, in Ayrshire, just off the Whitletts roundabout.
This is actually a series of four walks, the Waggonway Trail (3 miles) Oswald's Trail (2.75 miles) Three Green Knights Trail (1.5 miles) and the Farm Trail (2.5 miles) which you can do seperately or join them up for one walk of almost 10 miles. Each walk is colour coded and clearly marked, and they all start and finish at the main car park. It's a fantastic day out.
Another one not listed as one of our Scotland walking events, but a great walk nonetheless, is the Greenock Cut. As you pass through Greenock heading for Inverkip, take the road for Loch Thom until you arrive at the Cornalees Bridge Centre. Your seven mile walk starts and ends here, and you'll enjoy some fantastic views across the water to the Island of Bute.
The longest, and most popular and challenging walk in Scotland is the West Highland Way, from Milngavie to Fort William, a distance of 95 miles.
