There’s nothing like exploring off the beaten path, but if you’re planning to depart from established paths and trails, make sure you’re prepared with maps, compass, weather forecast and supplies especially if you plan to explore off the beaten path or are planning a full day out. As elsewhere in Scotland, there is open access provided you exercise your rights responsibly. Please keep away from livestock and keep your dog under control.
Paths may become wet and boggy in certain conditions. Please bring appropriate clothing and footwear and be aware that the weather can be very changeable, even in summer.
Some paths and trails are accessible for wheelchairs and buggies, especially those around Loch Katrine. View some of our short walks.
