Walking is a great way to get the kids active on holiday and to introduce them to nature and the environment. The walks needn't be long and you can make it a fun adventure, maybe take a picnic, stop for an ice cream or visit a famous landmark.
All of Scotland's mountains above 3,000 feet are known as Munros; some 236 peaks in total and they provide some of the most spectacular and challenging walks in the country. However due to their elevation these are best tackled in the spring and summer. Only experienced, fit and well equipped walkers should attempt them in the winter.
Many walks will follow well marked trails that require little specialist equipment or experience, simply a good pair of boots will often do, but if you plan to undertake longer distance hillside or mountain walks good preparation, planning and equipment is essential and always check the weather forecast before you set out.
