West Highland Way , Scotland - there is a famous walk which starts in Milngavie on the outskirts of Glasgow and finishes in Fort William. You will discover the most magnificent scenery and wonderful pubs and inns. There are many travel companies who will help you organise this and take your baggage for you instead of you having to carry it. Thy will also book hotels and guest houses for you en route. For further information see
The First National Park in Scotland Park in Scotland - Trossachs National Park.
I have been very fortunate to live in Croftamie for 10 years a small hamlet 2 miles from Drymen a pretty little village with a village green, and the oldest pub in Scotland which dates back to 1745 "The Clachan. There are many beautiful walks in this area which belong to the Queen Elizabeth Forestry
Top Notch Scotland - Top Class Tourist Attractions in Scotland 
Scotland has such beautiful scenery but what do you do when you get to your destination. Being Scottish I have always had a passion for Scotland, however over the the years Scottish Tourism has been perceived as very tacky conveying an image of Scotland as mainly Tartan. However I am glad to say that there are a few "Top Notch" Tourist Attractions, one of many being "Bruar" which is situated between Perth and Inverness. 

A well admired Scottish Tourist Attraction is Baxters at Blackford - just off the M9 Motorway between Stirling and Perth.  
Baxters at Blackford is the home of the new flagship experience.
In addition to outstanding restaurant facilities, Baxters offers a fantastic Scottish showcase of inspirational fine food, clothing, gifts and much, much more. Blackford is ideal for the perfect day out for visitors from the surrounding Perthshire area, and for those travelling the main tourist route North to the Highlands. Blackford is situated is situated 10 minutes from The Famous Gleneagles Hotel, there are many
wonderful walks near this area. 

I recently discovered a new haven in Scotland, Duchally Estates, Built in 1838, Duchally Country Estate is one of the finest hotels in the heart of Scotland's Braveheart country, with Gleneagles only two minutes away. Set in its own 27 acres of spectacular grounds, it is a true haven of hospitality. This former 19th century Manor is now refurbished to its former splendour. It has 13 hotel bedrooms and 24 self-catering lodges. You do not have to be a resident to use the hotel facilities. The hotel is situated off the Glendeveon Road, well worth a visit! Very friendly staff!

Bruar represents Scotland as it should be portrayed. Within its unique environment nestling at the side of the famous Bruar Falls, The House of Bruar offers a variety of shopping opportunities rolled into one. Bruar offers a carefully selected range of elegant and refined country clothing just a taste of our Scottish delights. Bruar has a clearance shop which is carefully hidden at the back of the development. This is well worth a visit, many high class bargains on offer. In addition to this Bruar offers a fabulous range of Scottish Fayre. The food is second to none, well recommended for a family outing for Sunday lunch, however it is not cheap, but I always believe you get what you pay for.  As mentioned previously the Bruar Falls offers spectacular Scottish scenery at its best, take a beautiful walk up the falls. If you combine this up market shopping experience with fine Scottish food and Scottish Scenery, it is a memorable day out in Scotland to be cherished!

If you are travelling further north of the A9 towards the Scottish Higlands, I suggest you stop off at the new Aviemore resort,
Macdonald Aviemore Highland Resort takes your holiday to a higher level. Located in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, the resort offers boundless opportunities to experience numerous outdoor and sporting activities year-round and to enjoy the best of famed Highland hospitality.

Finally I suggest you follow the whisky trail, stopping on route at The Garth Hotel, Granton on Spey This Scottish hotel, near Aviemore, has recently been refurbished to encompass the perfect blend of elegant Victorian design and originality and all modern comforts. Fine hotel accommodation and food in the Scottish Highlands offering the standard of hospitality that Scotland has become renowned for, again extremely friendly and helpful staff. This hotel has a lovely ambience!  After a restful and very pleasant stay here discover the famous Speyside Whisky Trail
