The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

GO Outdoors

39 Glendoe Terrace, Inverness IV3 8DL, UK – 0344 387 6834

Having recently moved to the Highlands, this was my first visit to the store to look to purchase winter clothes for my night time photography. A very comprehensive and impressive store with a large selection of clothing and accesscory options to suit all budgets. I was able to kit myself out with 90% of the full set of clothes that I required with quality items and at decent prices Just a minor let down on the range of sizes available and this and the small number of staff on hand, dropped it from a 5 star rating. I've no hesitation to return and can thouroghly recommend the store.

Great customer service could easily spend a full day in the shop. Going to have a very happy toddler with balance bike

Cotswold Outdoor Inverness

Unit 2, 1 Harbour Rd, Inverness IV1 1SD, UK – 01463 214110

Super helpful staff... Particularly the lady at the till on our visit (Kate? or Kath?) good selection of gear and easy access from the main road to pick up any kit you maybe short of thanks

Top class outdoor store. Well stocked with a range of the latest stuff. Very helpful staff. Easy to access location with free parking.

Trespass Inverness

WalkingWorld.jpg
Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the country. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks..

Camping and Caravaning

Torvean Caravan Park

Glenurquhart Rd, Inverness IV3 8JL, UK – 01463 220582

Washrooms were super clean! Camp was nice and quiet, good WiFi connection, too far from city Centre. A little pricey at 26£/Night

Good site beside Cally canal. Easy access to town

Bught Park Caravan Park & Campsite

Bught Ln, Inverness IV3 5SR, UK – 01463 236920

Great site, friendly staff, really close to the town center, all the usual amenities required.. at the time of posting only a tenner to camp a night as a back packer/cycle tour. Would highly recommend..

Good location for walking to the city. It's also right next door the beautiful Ness island. The shower block (no toilets) closest to the reception is better than the other one with the toilets, which is very outdated...it's reasonably clean but has awful "Trainspotting" decor.

Blacks

3-9 Academy St, Inverness IV1 1JN, UK – 01463 216617

Good back Friday sale! Got a coat and some reduced maps! Great! Staff are always helpful.

Fantastic service, really helpful. Their products were worth every penny, walking around Scotland in the rain and still completely dry!!
