The following information will help you find some of the UK's best dog trails and walks. They aren't always just for dogs of course, their humans can enjoy this too!

The South West Coast Path

It runs 680 miles from Minehead in Somerset to Cornwall along Exmoor's coastline. This route follows the entire coastline of Cornwall, crosses the mouth of the River Tamar, and continues into Devon. As it runs along the south coast of Devon, it then follows the Dorset coastline before ending at Poole Harbour.

As a National Trail, the South West Coast Path is marked all the way around with acorns. At key points along the trail, such as Minehead (the start), Porthallow (the mid-point), and South Haven Point (the end), you will also find large commemorative markers. All of which are perfect reasons to take a photo! Along the way, there are also way markers that indicate how far you are from the trail's ends. While most walkers follow the Path anti-clockwise, from Minehead to Poole, there is no reason why it cannot be walked in the opposite direction.

The Ceredigion Coast Path Wales

Ceredigion's 60 miles (96km) Coast Path is a very special part of the Wales Coast Path, offering the most varied landscape and terrain of the entire 870 mile (1400km) route. In addition to great views towards Snowdonia and Pembrokeshire, the Ceredigion Coast path offers a wealth of wildlife, geological and archaeological features and a colourful history.

There are seven sections in the Ceredigion section of the Wales Coast Path - representing seven days of walking. You can find accommodation and transport in each town or village where the section ends and a few examples are shown below. The route sections are described in order from south to north.

Cardigan to Aberporth, Aberporth to Llangrannog, Llangrannog to New Quay, New Quay to Aberaeron, Llanrhystud to Aberystwyth, Aberystwyth to Ynyslas

Scottish National Trail

From Kirk Yetholm to Cape Wrath, the Scottish National Trail runs 864 kilometers across Scotland.

Cameron McNeish, an outdoors writer and broadcaster, developed the Trail, which follows long-established footpaths for a majority of its distance, but becomes increasingly challenging as it reaches the north. On the final stretch of the Cape Wrath Trail, backpacking is tough with some pathless and demanding terrain.
Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders marks the start of the Pennine Way Trail. Initially, it follows St Cuthbert's Way north to Melrose and its picturesque Abbey, and then follows the Southern Upland Way to Traquair.

From Peebles, the route climbs over the Meldon Hills and then the Pentlands to reach Edinburgh, the capital city. There are towpaths along the Union Canal that provide easy access to Linlithgow and Falkirk Wheel. Before joining the West Highland Way at Milngavie, the Forth and Clyde Canal carries the route to the northern fringes of Glasgow. Following the Rob Roy Way to Callander, the trail then passes through Comrie and over the hills and glens of Perthshire to Aberfeldy and Pitlochy.

This route then moves on from Blair Atholl and passes through Glen Tilt and Glen Feshie through the Cairngorms National Park. From the Corrieyairack Pass, you can reach Fort Augustus and the Great Glen via the Monadhliath. After passing through Glen Garry and on to the great mountains of Kintail, we briefly follow the Great Glen Way.

This is when the route joins the Cape Wrath Trail, which is a more demanding route for backpackers. As the West Highlands unfold, the rewards increase too, with the falls of Glomach, the wilds of Monar, and the Great Wilderness of Letterewe beyond Kinlochewe. To reach Oykel Bridge, the route crosses wild country and then continues northward to Inchnadamph and Sutherland. To reach Cape Wrath, a final wild stretch takes you past the iconic Sandwood Bay.
