Scottish Hill Tracks

First published in 1947, the fifth edition of Scottish Hill Tracks was published in 2011. It’s a unique resource describing 344 routes that walkers, cyclists, riders and runners can use to explore the paths, old roads and rights of way which criss-cross Scotland’s hill country, from the Borders to Caithness.  However, the countryside does not stand still.  As it changes the information in the book becomes dated and we invite you to help us keep that information up-to-date.

If you follow one of the routes why not let us know what the journey was like?  Is the description in the book still accurate or has something changed?  Is a grid reference in the book not quite right? Is it a stunning walk, but a horrible cycle?

You can help keep Scottish Hill Tracks accurate by sending your corrections and changes information to the office. If you don’t have your own copy yet you can buy one in our shop. Exclusive to ScotWays, each book comes with a fully updated colour map insert showing all the Scottish Hill Tracks routes detailed in the book. If you have bought the book elsewhere, or want an additional or replacement map, it can be bought separately from the book through our shop. It’s also popular for route planning in its own right.
