Do you love Scotland? Do you like to walk? Would you like to find out about some 1500 different walks that take into account fitness levels, experience and your location? Walkhighlands could be the website for you.

Walkhighlands, which offers free, detailed descriptions of walking routes throughout Scotland, has recently hit the 1500 walks mark, with a detailed route of the Butt of Lewis, in the Western Isles.

Since launching in 2007, with an initial investment of just £50, the website has grown rapidly. Another new development is a version of the Walkhighlands website, designed for use on smartphones, iPads and other tablets, as well with a new look for desktop computer users.

Walkhighlands co-founder Paul Webster is thrilled by the success of his walking website. He says: “Traffic this year is up another 35% on last year and the continuing recession has had very little impact.

“We’re now seeing 200,000 pages being viewed each day, and Walkhighlands has become the second busiest Scottish tourism website after Visitscotland itself, which seems phenomenal for a small start up. It’s also now the UK’s busiest website for walkers.”

Walkhighlands has almost 20,000 registered members. Routes featured range from short walks around visiting the coast and beaches to ascents of the toughest mountains.
