Fun Friday paddling out to visit Inchmurrin island in Loch Lomond. The island is full of history, you can still see the ruins of Lennox castle which was built in the late 1600’s. It was later converted to a mental asylum and where unmarried pregnant women were sent to give birth. Famous English travel writer, H. V Morton, described it as ‘the grassy isle, an island packed with memories Inchmurrin has its own hotel, bar and restaurant, open from Easter to October. The surrounding beaches are gorgeous with stunning views across the loch, definitely worth a visit.

Looking out on Loch Leven towards the range of Glencoe. Tomorrow we've got a hiking trip planned up the Pap of Glencoe (Sgorr na Cìche ). Fingers crossed for some clear skies and good views 🤞🏻 #northballachulish #glencoe #lochleven #scottishlochs #scottishhighlands #highlands #visitscotland #explore_scotland

Today we followed the Great Glen Way from Fort William to Caol to check out the 'Corpach Shipwreck' on Coal Beach. ---------------- The Great Glen Way is one of the major long distance trails in scotland (others are e.g. the West Highland Way and the Skye Trail ) and stretches for 118.5km from coast to coast across the Highlands, linking the two main cities Fort William and Inverness. The route follows the natural faultline of the Great Glen which divides Scotland from coast to coast (Atlantic to North Sea ). However we only did a very short way (5km one way ) from Fort William to Caol and back. ---------------- #longdistancetrail #walkingtrailsscotland #greatglenway #caolbeach #fortwilliam #explore_scotland

The only access to this island is via a causeway at low tide. The Brough of Birsay was a Viking stronghold in the 1000's and Pictish people lived here before that in the 600's. There are ruins of the Norse buildings, including a sauna. The Brough of Birsay Lighthouse (seen in the far distance ), as well as many other Scotltish lighthouses, was designed by Robert Stevenson, grandfather of Robert Louis Stevenson. On the beach you can find Cowie shells, which are known here as "groatie buckies". It is said if you have one in your purse, it will never be empty. Unfortunately, I didn't find one. . . . #broughofbirsay #orkney #history #vikings #pictish #lighthouse #scotland #visitscotland #lovescotland #historicscotland #scotlandinsta #scotlandexplore #scotshots #scotlandtravel #scottish #bestscotlandpics #explore_scotland #scotlandsbeauty #thisisscotland #traveling_scotland #scotsmagazine #beautifulscotland #simplyscotland #scotlandsites #outandaboutscotland #scotlandphotography #raw_mobile #postcardsfromtheworld #mobilephotography #samsungphotography

A quick photo of Loch a' Chroisg, grabbed in one of many such stops on our way to Skye. It took us an age to get there in the end because we kept stopping for photos. 😃But you can't ignore such beautiful scenery! #lochachroisg #achnasheen #scotland #UnlimitedScotland #thisisscotland #hiddenscotland #visitscotland #explore_scotland #scotlandmagazine #gloriousbritain #ukscenery #genuinebritain #explore_britain #traveling_uk #lovegreatbritain #scenicbritain #visitbritain #landscapephotography #landscape #ukpotd

"Here drowned two young people in 1830" or something to that effect, said a plaque under this bridge over the River Dee at Mar Lodge Estate in Scotland. ⁠ ⁠ Owned by the @nationaltrustforscotland this place is such a pleasure to explore - it covers 8% of the Cairngorms and is a hotbed of conservation for the local flora and fauna!⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #ForTheLoveofScotland#visitscotland #explorescotland #loves_scotland #lovescotland #scotland #scotland_greatshots #instascotland #insta_scotland #scotland_insta #unlimitedscotland #instascotland #ilovescotland #scotspirit #yourscotland #igersscots #thisisscotland #explore_scotland #thescottishcollective #scotlandisnow #igersscotland ⁠⠀⁠ #scotlandscenery @scotlandscenery @love scotland @hiddenscotland #hiddenscotland @thescottishcollective #thescottishcollective#cairngorms #roadtrip

The Wellie Boot Garden, Saint Monans The Wellie Garden was started by Win Brown, a local teacher and amateur gardener who decided to put her grandchildren’s outgrown Wellington boots to good use, and brighten up the slipway at the same time. Old boots came from her students, too, as well as others looking to clear out their closets. So popular was the idea that some 200 pairs, and counting, decorate the rusted slip rails every summer. #discoverscotland #hiddenscotland #takeninscotland #scotlandlovers #scotshots #scotlandbytheroadside #scotlandpics #historicscotland #explore_scotland #visitscotland #visitfife #scotlandphotography #unlimitedscotland #outandaboutscotland #icuscotland #travelpic #historicenvironmentscotland #brilliantscotland #lovefife #historicenvironmentscotland #scotland4you #scoziaontheroad #myinstascotland #stmonans #stmonansharbour

So many wonderful views in tiny Dean Village. The colorful buildings are situated on the Water of Leith walkway just a short distance from Edinburgh’s Old Town. Make sure to escape the hustle and bustle of the busy city for a few moments to view this hidden gem. #deanvillage #deanvillageedinburgh #waterofleithwalkway #iangblack #simplyscotland #unlimitedscotland #edinburghcity #edinburghsnapshots #scottishcollective #scotlandshots #scotland_lover #edinburgh_snapshots #instaedinburgh #ig_edinburgh #edinburghlife #discoveredinburgh #explore_scotland #visitscotland #lovesscotland #unlimitedscotland

Almost a year ago, I was shooting an event at the Scottish Parliament and decided to head up Arthurs Seat before it began for a quick sunset shoot. I was blown away by the conditions I saw. There was a lot of rain on the way up, bbut it was heading west quickly, which meant it ended up between me and the setting sun and was beautifully lit up as it passed over Edinburgh and the Pentlands. #visitscotland #osmapsgetoutside #harveysmaps #edinburgh #thisisedinburgh #hiddenscotland #explore_scotland #soslp #sunset #sunsetscotland #goldenhour #scottishautumn #edinburghautumn #pentlandhills #urbanlandscape #thisisedinburgh #loveedinburgh #amazinglight #amazingweather #ukmetoffice @soslp @thescottishcollective

The long sweeping Gleann Taitneach. . The Glen Ey 5 munros are set back from the nearest road and, whichever way you do them, there's a beast of a walk in. Most people mountain bike up Glen Ey from the NE; but if you're driving from the south you can walk in from Spittal of Glenshee (as pictured ) which saves a chunk of driving time but isn't as convenient to bike. . 29.06.19 'Glen Ey 5' from Spittal of Glenshee . . . #glenshee #perthshire #mountains #mountaineering #hiking #hillwalking #mountainlifestyle #mountainlovers #mountainphotography #scotland #scottishhighlands #landscape #landscapephotography #mountainlandscape #wildernessnation #modernoutdoors #unlimitedscotland #scotland_greatshots #traveling_scotland #explore_scotland #visitscotland #thisisscotland #icu_scotland #scotlandshots #hiddenscotland #ig_scotland #lovescotland #ukhikers #scottishcollective #scotlandsbeauty

Hogwarts express at the platform in Fort William. 🚂 The Jacobite steamtrain runs from Fort William to Mallaig twice a day from April to October.

. There are no wrong roads And no window stays closed And love is always sad when it fades But glass is better stained anyways . Whatever you’ve done, it doesn’t matter 'Cause darling we're all a little splintered and battered But the light is on, what you waiting for?
