Walking & Hiking
While Scotland has some of the most exciting outdoor adventures in Europe we sometimes fail to appreciate the possibilities which lie right on our doorstep. The Seven Hills of Edinburgh however are a weekend adventure which can easily be tackled in a day and take in some of the capitals best views. We've teamed up with Adventure Patch Company to create a free Seven Hills patch which will be available in our Bruntsfield and St James Quarter stores from 19th June. .

Here at Nordic Outdoor we love to see the gear we sell get given a good test in the environment it was designed for. The Amundsen Heroes Turtleneck is one of our favourite items from the last season and our local Action Man Harvey Strachan last weekend put it to the test showcasing it's just as good at the top of a Munro as it is in a cosy Edinburgh pub. Find out how Harvey and the Nordic Outdoor team got on with this iconic piece of knitwear in the latest Nordic Outdoor blog. .
Everyone who has read any of our blogs before will know we love wool. Even with our borderline obsession with this natural high-tech fibre, we couldn’t possibly be suggesting that you should wear wool in the Summer. Well that’s where your wrong! Read on in this blog to learn just why wool is the perfect choice for base layers in the Summer months.
As we draw closer to the new year, the staff here at Nordic Outdoor are already planning and talking about next years adventures and trips.
Some people like to travel with their friends and loved ones, others prefer to go it alone, but recently more and more people have been taking their four-legged friends on their journeys with them. It’s something we love to see at Nordic Outdoor, and it brightens our staff’s days to get a visit from a dog and their owner looking for some quality.
