About

Hi – We are Alison and John Mackenzie. The aim of our website is to provide guidance for the walking routes in Scotland that we have enjoyed. This website is linked to our self-guided walking site for Tenerife. We love walking but, for us, fairly easy, short, half-day routes in mixed countryside, low hills and coastal areas are best. We are not into bagging Munros, or long distance trails. So, most of the walks described on this site will be under 10 km in length. We hope you find our website useful.

We would like to acknowledge our huge appreciation for the walkhighlands website. It is a tremendous resource for walkers of all abilities and interests in Scotland, and we often use it to identify new “Mack Walks” routes. Sometimes we shorten or lengthen, or otherwise modify the routes described in walkhighlands, but we are always extremely grateful for the invaluable assistance in route-finding, and, more generally, for the pioneering work the site organisers have done to curate the definitive “go to” collection of walking routes in Scotland.

Small Print Alert! – We can take no responsibility for any accidents, mishaps or similar that you may experience in using our self-guided walks. Always make your own judgement, on the ground, at that moment in time, as to what is safe and appropriate for you. Happy trails …!
