Hiking in Scotland Flexible Itineraries for the Best Hikes in Scotland


The beauty of Scotland’s Munros is they are all unique. Towards the east of Scotland, most of the mountains are broad, round, gradual, slopes.

Some of the easterly Munros feature arctic tundra – the only instances in the whole of the UK. In the west, the Munros tend to form more jagged peaks.

Day 1 Ullapool Hiking Itinerary Torridon: Liathach or Beinn Eighe

You have a long day ahead of you so best to steer clear of the pub the night before and get an early start.

Beinn Eighe

We have picked Liathach and Beinn Eighe hikes for you to choose from as they are by far the most beautiful.


The Liathach Munro is not for the faint-hearted as traversing the Am Fasarinen pinnacles leaves you significantly exposed. However, there is a bypass route that avoids overexposure.

Day 2 Ullapool Hiking Itinerary An Teallach or the Ben Dearg Group

Depending on your fitness level, and mood, take the 30-minute drive to An Teallach or the 10-minute drive to Ben Dearg.

An Teallach

An Teallach holds a reputation as Scotland’s most stunning Munro. The traverse includes several ridges, views of the Scottish Isles and will leave you with memories to last a lifetime.
