<<"Arno, my daughter and I do like to walk and would appreciate informationabout the ones with good views that you mentioned. We do thank you for your help. BK ">>
I can add some suggestions for the Lower Engadine, in addition to what I was able to find according to Arno's suggestions.
First - for clarity, I mentioned a shuttle bus up to Guarda. It runs from the Guarda Station. I might have left the impression that it left from Scuol.
To visualize these hikes, the SwissTopo web site is very useful.
Here is a link to the region -map.geo.admin.ch/?X=186480.00&Y=813850.0 0&zoom=6&topic=swissto po&lang=en&bgLayer=ch. swisstopo.pixelkarte-farbe&layers=ch.swisst opo.swissimage-product&layers_opacity =0.65
Also, the home page has a tab for Products.

The paper maps, particularly the "Wanderkarte" which show in red the "Wanderwegen," are very useful for me, since I like paper maps. Paper topos are widely available, especially in scenic hiking and skiing regions.
Another good map which shows public transport time tables if zoomed in sufficiently to show station icons is -
Here are some easy walks. You can scale them on the maps -
1.- The highest of the trails near Scuol on my list,
Start at Scuol station- take the cable car up to Motta Naluns (restaurant) , walk moderately downhill west to Prui above Ftan, take "ski" lift (I recall a chair lift.....?) from Prui to Ftan- bus from Ftan to Scuol Station.
Check the schedule on the Prui to Ftan lift/ Station name may be Ftan Pitschen.
2.- Scuol station to Ftan by bus - walk to Ardez - walk down to Ardez station or maybe there is a bus (not too bad a walk, don't need a bus) - train from Ardez to Scuol station. Ftan has some nice architecture. Don't get caught on the narrow street when the cows are coming in to the barn for the night.
3.- Other walks in the National Park
www.myswitzerland.com/ en/the-swiss-national-park.html and www.nationalpark.ch
Many are not so easy, but the one mentioned in Arno's link )Il Fuorn to Alp Grümm) is not too difficult. Only about a 300 meter ascent, although you are well over a mile high and may pant a bit.
4- A walk to Sur En.
Sur en is an out of the way and very attractive very small village across the Inn River from ( approx.) Ardez.
You can walk in on the road from from Ardez station ( somewhat steep) or via the river crossing close to Giarsun. The latter probably requires a good look at a map, and there is no parking anywhere near Giarsun if you are driving.
5 .- A map will show that the road from Ftan to Ardez continues to Guarda, via Bos-Cha. At Ardez, the trail for the first part does not lose as much altitude that must be regained as the road does , and joins the road a few hundred meters east of Ardez
There are many more marked trails that are more strenuous. I only picked a few that are relatively easy.
