Why are there so few walks in Scotland?

There are five reasons why we do not have many walks in Scotland (in no particular order)

1 - It is a long way for Claire, Bobbie and I to travel both in terms of time and costs. So it's not easy to just jump in a car for a few days.

2 - Unlike England and Wales we have been able to attract any walk sponsors such as pubs, local authorities, landowners, etc.  (Just create a whole set of walks for a landowner in North Yorkshire for example)

3 - We have had very few volunteer guest authors for Scotland - iFootpath Expert: Become a Guest Walk Author

5 - There has been less demand for walks in Scotland  - maybe because of the open access rules?
