ViewRanger partners with Walkhighlands to bring the best walks in Scotland to Smartphones

Cambridge, UK 21st April 2011: Visitors and locals alike can now download detailed walking route guides for Scotland straight onto their mobile phones following a new collaboration between award-winning mobile phone app ViewRanger and top walkers' website Walkhighlands.

Every expert guided route can be browsed and downloaded to a smartphone with just a few taps. The ViewRanger app can then be used to guide and navigate the user along the mapped trail. Embedded within each of the routes, the user can access a wealth of local expertise, for instance, many of the Walkhighlands routes even feature audio clips giving the correct pronunciation for place names.

“Our routes offer walks for all tastes from challenging ascents up the Munros to walks through Caledonian pinewoods or hikes exploring Scotland's spectacular coastline,” said Walkhighlands co-founder Paul Webster. “ViewRanger is a superb and ground-breaking app, we're delighted to be able to offer Walkhighlands routes through ViewRanger.”

Commenting on the launch ViewRanger CEO Craig Wareham said “Walkhighlands routes wonderfully enrich our content database and will be very popular with our customers. The fact our app lets customers purchase Ordnance Survey maps, which can be viewed on their phones even without a mobile signal is a key consideration for use in many parts of Scotland”

Android & Symbian smartphone owners can get ViewRanger on 15 day free trial or from just 59p on Apple devices over the holiday period. Between now and 2nd May 2011, all registered customers can even download a Walkhighlands route for free, as part of a Spring free routes promotion.
