In Scotland, many hiking trails are on private land. This means that farmers still have their cattle grazing in the same fields. Some cattle, especially the Scottish highlanders (which have big horns) may look intimidating. However, don’t worry, you will find these animals are actually quite timid. Continue walking in a normal fashion (do not run) and you should have no problems.
Here are a few other tips to avoid any issues when dealing with cattle on your hike:
Most areas have cell phone reception, even while you are hiking. However, you may pass through some remote areas where reception will be either limited or unavailable entirely.
Yes, in most Bed and Breakfast’s Wi-Fi is available.
Yes, most routes are very clearly way-marked with a marker directly before and after each turn.
