Head for the Hills: What we can learn from walking with Walter Scott

Scott was one of the first people to make connections between mental health issues and the restorative power of engaging with nature. 

The Walter Scott Research Centre at the University of Aberdeen is proud to work with Scottish Mountaineer Magazine and the mental health charity Black Dog Outdoors to explore how his approaches can help us to be mindful when walking in the hills today. There will be an opportunity for the public to reflect on these ideas through a series of local hill walks led by guided walk provider, Hillgoers.
