Autumn Walks

Autumn Walks

Autumn is a time of wonder when our island’s landscapes turn into a kaleidoscope of colours and numerous wildlife experiences. Exploring the glens, reservoirs, coastlines and countryside on foot is a great way to make the most of this magical time of year and there are lots of different highlights to experience from our walking routes.

Our island boasts a spectacular collection of walks that showcase the natural beauty of the island as we move into the autumn months. See the magnificence of nature with the gold and orange and green tones of the glens and forests, as well as marvelling in the natural flora and fauna best glimpsed on foot. There are also a host of wildlife events that come with autumn, such as spotting seal pups, the arrival of migrant birds and foraging for wild mushrooms. 

From bracing walks over windswept countryside to gentle walks through the forests with leaves crunching underfoot, there are trails to suit all tastes. This itinerary comprises some of our most colourful walks to inspire you this autumn, but be sure to check out our Walking and Hiking lists for more trails.
