Scotland is well known throughout the world for its rugged landscapes and magnificent scenery which makes it a perfect setting for lovers of the great outdoors. Indeed, for the keen fell walker there is nowhere better to hit the hills.
Just imagine a few days break walking and exploring in the brilliantly fresh and unpolluted air of the countryside, before returning home to the Scotland country hotel where you have booked a room for the night. It would be a perfect opportunity to rest your mind and connect with nature. Scotland can offer complete peace and quiet for anyone that needs a break from their everyday life.
One of the most exciting places to visit in Scotland is the Munros area, which consists of the highest mountains in the country. Named after Sir Hugh T. Munro who was responsible for surveying all the country’s mountains measuring over 3000 feet in 1891, this challenging landscape offers some of the most spectacular views in the United Kingdom.
In winter, the weather can be icy and treacherous. Howling winds whistle past your ears, and heavy snow and hail storms are not uncommon. Any hill walkers that want to tackle the Munros mountains in winter should ensure that they have the proper experience and equipment to complete such ascents. The Mountaineering Council of Scotland’s website has a dedicated winter safety page giving you helpful tips that could save your life.
Climbing mountains is a tough task whatever the season, so after a good few hours challenging yourself physically you may want to book a break that will allow you to relax and unwind. If you want to add a bit of glamour to your adventure you could always stay at a Hilton Scotland hotel. Put your feet up and relax after a long day in the great outdoors, or enjoy a delicious hearty meal to regain energy.
