Here are 8 walks on Trust sites that are a bit
adventurous. They're not arduous hill walks - but
they do require average fitness. They include
some lovely views, rushing streams, cliffs and a
sea journey.
Mar Lodge Estate, Braemar

Difficulty level
Average fitness required

This remote Highland estate has several Munros (over 3,000ft or 914.4m). The four highest mountains after Ben Nevis are on Mar Lodge Estate. But we're not suggesting you go up them - instead, try one of the low level trails through the woods and beside the river. There is a Trust map of the estate which shows the walks. There's some beautiful views - and the space gives you a great feeling of 'getting away from it all'.
