Scotland doesn't possess extremely tall mountains, but its hilly and bucolic nature is a great way to test your mettle. The trails along the coast will provide a vastly different setting with similar obstacles and objectives.

Best Time to Visit
You can enjoy a trail running trip from spring to autumn, generally from March through October
Though mild temperatures prevail throughout the country, rain is also common. The east coast is slightly drier. Winters are a bit colder, which make them less conducive to trail running
How to Get There
You can fly into Glasgow Edinburgh directly from major European cities like London, Paris, Frankfurt, and even Istanbul. Bus routes within the country provide access to more remote areas. Private transportation for domestic travel is extremely efficient as well
Variety is a great part of any trail running program, and Scotland has it in droves. Stunning paths along “lochs,” or lakes, supplement pasture routes, all within the incredible expanse of the Scottish countryside. The size allows for a number of different trails and distances, catering to the level and experience of the participants. 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
