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.

Big, well stocked store where you can lose a couple of hours just looking. Good bargains to be found too.

Cotswold Outdoor

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

Excellent sized store with an extensive range of clothing and products! Super friendly team of staff working today... we tried on lots of outfits and spent a small fortune to allow us to continue to enjoy our outdoor pursuits. Bravo 👏🏼

Nice shop with good variety of stock and helpful staff. Often offers on so good to sign up to the mailing list, this shop doesn't carry many of the same size though so you may need to order in your size occasionally.

Tiso Inverness Outdoor Experience

2 Henderson Rd, Inverness IV1 1SN, UK – 01463 729171

Not much assistans and items too high up to reach. Very limited watersport stuff and will probably have to shop online, as the rest of Inverness also very limited. Nice looking store and may be much better for other sports.

Great shop, good range of quality outdoors equip and clothing and accessories. Staff are ace- couldnt have been more helpful!

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 UK. 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.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!

Camping and Caravaning

Torvean Caravan Park

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

Excellent facilities. Treated ourselves to a delux pitch own water, electric, waste disposal and TV if required. Staff very helpful. Right on Caledonian canal do nice but walks. Beefeater next door if you like that sort of thing.

Stayed in Torvean on the last night of our NC500 trip. Nice sight with good facilities. We took a walk along to The Premier Inn (2 minute walk) and had dinner in their restaurant.
