Stunning paths along “lochs,” or lakes, supplement pasture routes, all within the incredible expanse of the Scottish countryside.

Combining a trail running program with a nature discovery, canyoning, or hiking trip is also idyllic. This will remove all the restraints to experiencing the country, and you can see its beauty from a multitude of disciplines. Some programs do have demanding itineraries, so be prepared to train for specific programs.
