Self-guided walking holidays in Britain are a wonderful relaxed way to discover the magic of our beautiful landscapes, hidden villages and wild places. We have carefully focused on three diverse areas in Britain to make the most of the countryside and get in touch with the rich cultural past on our doorstep.
Famous for having some of the most spectacular natural scenery in the UK, the Scottish Highlands offer numerous delights for walkers, with ruined castles, shady forests, tranquil waterways, and a huge variety of wildlife just waiting to be discovered. Mid-way down, the iconic UNESCO Lake District will never disappoint, whatever the time of year, and further down south, Dorset is a land of contrasts and breathtaking scenery, from the Jurassic Coast - a World Heritage Site - with its dramatic cliffs and sweeping beaches, to its rolling hillsides and sleepy villages.
This stunning 5 night walk along some of the UK's most beautiful coastline will introduce you to Dorset and the 185 million years of history that is the Jurassic Coast - Britain's first UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site. Take in elements of the South-West Coast Path and the Purbeck Way along with historic seaside towns and sleepy villages, spectacular natural landmarks (like Durdle Door), rolling green hills and towering white chalk cliffs, National Trust castles and beaches, and (of course) traditional English tea-rooms serving tea and home-made cake!
The Lake District National Park is England's most visited national park and this 6 night self-guided walking holiday takes in some of the highlights. Whether you're visiting the home of William Wordsworth while nibbling famous Grasmere gingerbread, surveying Lake Windermere from the top of Latterbarrow Fell, or following the Cumbria Way through beautiful country estates owned by the National Trust, you'll be sure to enjoy an authentic Lakeland experience!
Known for tales of the seldom seen monster, the area around Loch Ness is also famous for having some of the most spectacular natural scenery in the UK. Here numerous other lochs await discovery along with ruined castles, shady forests, tranquil waterways, high viewpoints, hidden waterfalls, a huge variety of wildlife (including many birds of prey and notably golden eagles) and a history that at times seems indiscernible from the area's timeless folklore.
