The Ramblers has said Mother's Day (March 18th) is a great occasion on which to go walking
While many people will be buying flowers, chocolates and other gifts, the walking organisation has said there could be "no better way to spend quality time with someone you love than enjoying some fresh air and fantastic views on a fine Spring Sunday".
And the organisation has a list of 200 walks it has organised for the day, taking place all over the country.
Head of walking programmes and promotions Simon Barnett said: "A glistening sea view, a shaded forest lane, a blossoming valley or riverside wander ... these are all gifts you can give this Mother's day."
Scottish hill-walkers planning to put on their hiking boots
and take their mum's Munroing might wish to be careful which mountain they choose.
Climbing a'Chailleach in the Monadhliath Mountains may be an unwise option, as offence may be caused by the English translation of its name - The old woman.
