If you’re a regular visitor to my blog then you’ll known that I’m absolutely head over heels in love with my beautiful country, Scotland.
Whenever I meet people who haven’t explored Scotland yet I always try to convince them that they need to visit. I tell them about how friendly Scottish people are, our breathtaking landscapes, delicious food, great culture and bustling cities, but I always think words don’t do Scotland justice. You really need to see it to believe how incredible it is.
So, without much further ado, here’s 10 photos to make you want to visit Scotland…
I captured this colourful sunset over the beach at North Berwick on the east coast of Scotland. North Berwick is a peaceful little seaside town with sandy beaches, boutique shops and cafes, friendly locals and some great restaurants.
This is another sunset from the same spot in North Berwick because it’s just so blooming beautiful!
This incredible waterfall can be found on the rugged island of Skye, off the west coast of Scotland. It’s a magical spot and from where you stand to view this the wind rushes through the railings to create a musical sound that all adds to the enchanting nature of it.
It’s no secret that St Andrews is one of my favourite places in Scotland and with historical ruins like this it’s not hard to see why. These are the ruins of St Andrews Cathedral, which dates back to the 12th century. You can take a stroll through the ruins and then wander on towards the ruins of St Andrews Castle too.
Scotland has some beautiful beaches, both the sandy variety and the more pebbled and shelled variety like this one. I absolutely adored the colours on this beach in Dumfries.
Even the cities in Scotland are picturesque and none more so than the capital, Edinburgh. This is the view from the highest and oldest point of the city, looking down towards the newer area and out to the Firth of Forth.
This beach – found on the east coast – looks like it would be more at home somewhere warm and in the Mediterranean. Would you believe this is actually Scotland?!
As well as rugged coastline and terrific mountainous scenery in The Highlands there are also many lochs which Scotland is so famous for. Loch Lomond is by far my favourite with peaceful spots like this to relax in.
Views like this are perfectly normal in Scotland and can be found all over the country. Luckily much of the country has been left natural and unspoiled and looks stunning for it.
Speaking of natural and unspoiled The Highlands have all of that in abundance. The Highlands are one of my favourite things about Scotland as I believe they tell the stories of the lives of the past inhabitants who lived there. The clans who roamed the hills protecting the country, surviving harsh winters and plenty of battles. Without them Scotland wouldn’t be what it is today and for that I’m immensely grateful.
