Scotland's Best B&Bs
Some of Scotland’s Great Trails can be found in Perthshire, Angus, Fife, the Lothians, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs.
These are waymarked routes which you can complete over several days or simply walk along the sections of your choice.
Stay with Scotland's Best B&Bs and explore some of Scotland's wonderful countryside which is perfect for walking holidays. Many of our B&Bs are part of the Walkers Welcome scheme by VisitScotland and they can offer places to dry out your kit if you get caught out in the rain. Some can also arrange drop off / pick up if you are needing transport to / from your chosen walking route.
Perthshire is famously known as Big Tree Country and there are plenty of shorter well-known walks such as Killiecrankie, The Birks of Aberfeldy, The Hermitage and Faskally Woods which are particularly stunning in the autumn. The Ochils are very popular with hill walkers. Favourite places for hikes in Angus include Glen Clova, Glen Esk, Glen Prosen and Glen Isla, as well as the Arbroath Cliff Trail.
