Our Story
Celtic Trails was founded on a passion for walking and a deep love for the great outdoors. Our founder, Angus, was an avid walker who believed that the best way to truly experience a region’s culture, history, and natural beauty was on foot. What started as a personal venture quickly grew into a business that has helped thousands of walkers explore some of the most breathtaking trails in the world. You can find more of our story here.
