The Scottish National Trail is the grandfather of long-distance hikes in Scotland; it combines many existing trails, linking them to form one massive hike that runs the length of Scotland. In 2018 I was the first solo female to complete the trail in one go. I wrote this hiking guide to help anyone planning to hike the Scottish National Trail, including answers to the most frequently asked questions, descriptions of each section, advice on what to pack, and other helpful information.
