Walkhighlands: free walks to inspire you

  • Free-to-view OS maps (including 1:25000 scale after free registration) – and detailed descriptions for over 2000 walks
  • Download route files to use with your GPS or smartphone

Update: as of March 2023, there is now a Walkhighlands app. The app allows you to find nearby walks and download our route descriptions and GPS mapping to your phone before you head out – so you’ll always have both the full description and the relevant route map, even if you have no signal. The route maps can show your current position based on your phone’s GPS.
This is a PWA app – it is not, and will not become, available via the app stores. It can be downloaded and installed direct to your device via an appropriate browser – Chrome for Android devices, Safari for Apple devices. It benefits from the inbuilt browser security: for further details click here.
