4. It's better for you and the environment
From helping prevent conditions like heart disease and high blood pressure to improving your strength, stamina, and energy, there are multiple benefits of walking as a form of exercise. Instead of spending the majority of your time in Scotland sitting in a car, get up and active by going on day hikes or long-distance walks like the West Highland Way, to improve your health while you're on vacation.
And walking is not only beneficial for your health and wellbeing, it’s also good for the environment. By ditching or cutting back on the use of cars, trains and planes while traveling, you're reducing the carbon footprint of your trip and practicing a more sustainable form of travel. As climate change threatens to impact on Scottish landscapes, we all need to do our part to travel more sustainably and help reduce our impact.
