Check out this list of hiking trails that will let you see the best of Scotland while you’re out in the fresh air.

One of the most famous trails in Scotland is the West Highland Way. With beautiful lochs, rivers and mountains along the way, the 96-mile route from Milngavie, near Glasgow, to Fort William is a top choice year after year among keen hikers. The whole thing will take around 10 days to hike.

Next up is the Great Glen Way, a 79-mile walk from Fort William to Inverness. Along the way you’ll visit Loch Ness, the alleged home of the mythical Loch Ness monster, as well as two other lochs.

If you are keen on summiting mountains, take on the seven-mile walk to the top of Ben Lomond. It’s the most climbed mountain in the Munros range and well worth a go.

An even more accessible hike is the two-mile walk to Steal Falls up on Glen Nevis. You’ll pass through meadows and gorges before reaching the epic falls.

Theater fans will be amazed by the walk along the River Braan through traditional woodland featured in Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The huge Douglas firs and beautiful bridges are truly a sight to behold.

How to Get From the Airport to Marrakech

The mystifying city of Marrakech, Morocco, is a delight to the traveler’s senses. As a fast-growing tourist destination, the largest city in Morocco welcomed a record-breaking 2 million visitors in 2017. Marrakech’s Medina dates to the 10th century when it was a Berber walled city, and its souks sell everything from fabrics to carpets to household goods, for negotiable prices.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
