The Scottish Lowlands

The Lowlands stretch from the Scottish border to Edinburgh and Glasgow in the north. The countryside is rugged; though there are no Munros, there are 7 Corbetts (hills over 2500 feet) and numerous other hills making for some good days out. We climb the hills above the Grey Mare's Tail waterfall near Moffat and Broad Law just to the north.

And of the many sports that have become established in the Lowlands, mountain biking is one of the most popular. We visit Ae Forest to find out how to get involved.


Isle of Arran

Arran is known as 'Scotland in miniature', having its own rocky, mountainous highlands in the north. Goatfell, its highest peak and walkable from the ferry terminal at Brodick is the most popular, but we sample the less frequented hills of the Three Beinns walk. We also take a look at the standing stones, thousands of years old, at Mackrie Moor.
