Here are some ideas for quieter routes.
The Scotland Off The Beaten Track website has a number of less frequented routes throughout Scotland and is independent of any business or area.
The South West of Scotland has some stunning landscape as is usually much quieter than the central belt. A good place to plan routes is the South West Scotland Hill Walking Routes Page.
ScotWays’ Heritage Paths website describes and maps all types of traditional routes across Scotland, from herring roads to coffin roads.
Scottish Hill Tracks first published in 1947 and still going strong, has got details of 344 routes across the hill of Scotland.
