SCOTLAND

1 FORT WILLIAM & GLENCOE SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS

This town is a basecamp for all kinds of outdoor activity, since it has mountains (such as Ben Nevis, right), water (such as Loch Linnhe) and beautiful scenery (such as Steall Falls and Glen Nevis) on its doorstep. Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in Britain and is best approached, by experienced fell runners, via Carn Mor Dearg. If you’re looking for a challenge in a stunning setting, these are the trails for you.

Best stretches to run: Ring of Steall and Glencoe.

About Men's Running

When I first started running, venturing off-road was all about school cross-country races, generally around anodyne playing fields in heavy football boots. It wasn’t the kind of experience that books are written about. In fact, it was the kind of experience that scarred many would-be runners for life. But fast forward, cough cough, a few years and trail running is now big business. The clamour for places in the ‘big daddy’ of all trail race, the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc, is as fervent as the Virgin Money London Marathon and shoe companies now have entire ranges dedicated to trail and off-road. Why is it so popular? If you haven’t yet ventured off the beaten track, trail running is about being more in-tune with nature and taking stock of your surroundings. It’s not about times or even really distances; it’s about testing your body over different terrain with vistas to die-for! In this Men’s Running special, we talk about everything trail, from training to technique. We even cover a few races for good measure. We hope you enjoy!
