I found the most beautiful highland ponies on the Isle of Muck. They are my new best friends and I am in love. 💙

AD | Postcards from Brodick, Arran ☀️ Have you been? I’m a west coast native but yesterday was my first time on the island — and it’s as lovely as every visitor tells you it is. Arran has mountains, beaches, cliffs, caves, wildlife plus their own cheese, craft beer and whisky… And there’s such a strong sense of community. It’s the best of Scotland on the one island. Haste me back 💙 #westcoastwaters #immerseyoursenses #YCW2020

Porpoises on the Firth of Clyde yesterday. I was going to Arran and they were going the other way. Probably chasing their lunch. Only got a brief glimpse but it was amazing to see them. #porpoise #calmac #Ayrshire #north_ayrshire #lovenorthayrshire #Scotland #animals #wildlife #mycalmacstory #instascotland #lovescotland #explorescotland #scottish #bucketlist #wanderlust #visitnorthayrshire

A lunar Landscape. . . This is a fantastic drive through a landscape that could be from another planet. This area was used as Jupiter for filming in the 2001 Space Odyssey movie. It's known as the Golden Road as it was rumoured to have cost so much to build. This is on the south east of Harris and goes from Rodel up to Tarbert. An absolute must if you are ever in the area. The road constantly winds up and down through the barren landscape with tiny villages scattered about. It cuts through Lewisian Gneiss, the oldest exposed rock in the world, 3000 millions years old! . . . . #visitscotland #djispark #drone #explore_britain #liveforthestory #scotspirit #GetOutside #ig_scotland #scotland_greatshots #scotland #icu_scotland #thisisscotland #hiddenscotland #unlimitedscotland #visitouterhebrides #yourscotland #westernisles #ScotlandTheGreat #scottishcollective #scotlandisnow #isleofharris #ScotlandShots #instaroads #landscape #scotlandscenery #dji_official #arielphotography #landscape_lovers #MYCALMACSTORY #ig_drone

Been so busy trying to earn a living that I’m concerned I’m not doing any actual living of late. Luckily I have lots of memories like these. This was the morning we left Berneray. I saw my first Bonxie [Skua] fly over these beautifully gigantic dunes. . . . . . . . #northwestisbest_europe #RoamResponsibly #MyCalMacStory #scotlandthefave #visitouterhebrides #Scotland #VisitScotland #VSCOcam #vsco #Loves_Scotland #ScotSpirit #ExploreScotland #SomewhereinScotland #Insta_Scotland #bbcscotlandpics #StayandWander #Igmasters #dunes #Exploretocreate #Instanature #LiveAuthentic #RealFolkLife #LetsGoSomewhere #skua

Bordered on three sides by sea lochs, with excellent hill walking, wildlife, and a sculpture park. Dunoon and the Cowal peninsula are excellent areas for walkers of all abilities. CalMac operates a fast and frequent passenger ferry service between the coastal town of Gourock to Dunoon, and with excellent rail links from Glasgow it's easy to enjoy a day away from city life.

Almost missed the ferry for this 😂 . . We were driving to catch the ferry over to Harris in the morning when we came across this big beast just chilling on the rock. Hard to describe how big they are if you've never seen one. The White-tailed Eagle is the biggest bird of prey in Britain with a wing span up to 8ft! We were very luck getting to watch this for a while before it flew off. . . . #seeuistsoon #nature_shooters #wildlifephotography #birdofprey #discoverwildlife #whitetailedeagle #southuist #visitouterhebrides   #scottishwildlifetrust   #MyCalMacStory #outerhebrides #ig_scotland #scotland_greatshots #yourscotland #scotland #icu_scotland   #thisisscotland #wildlifewednesday #unlimitedscotland #scottishwildlife #nature #wildlife #OutAndAboutScotland #springwatch #best_birds_of_ig #scotlandisnow #scottishcollective #loves_scotland #ukwildlifeimages #uk_wildlife_images

The Castle of Eilean Donan one of the most popular in Scotland for its spectacular setting, lonely standing out on top of an island in the centre of three dramatic sea lochs. Very photogenic with colours of the seaweed, the surrounding mountains and the mystical sky. . . Eilean Donan Castle befindet sich am Loch Duich in den westlichen schottischen Highlands. Die Burg liegt auf einer kleinen Landzunge, die bei Flut zu einer winzigen Gezeiteninsel wird. Sie ist dann nur durch eine steinerne Fußgängerbrücke zu erreichen. . . über welche Brücken seid Ihr dieses Jahr schon gegangen? #visitscotland #eileandonancastle #ilovescotland #simplytrafalgar #motorhomeadventures #travelphotography #travel #td #thegoodlife #vanlife #tdholiday #mycalmacstory #sonya6400 #samyang12mm #highland #theworldisnotenough

The last causeway. . . This was taken from the tiny Island of Berneray where we would get the ferry over to Harris. After 4 days we had visited 7 Islands and crossed the 5th and final causeway. This one was opened in 1999 by The Lord of the Isles, The Prince of Wales. I have one more image to share from the first part of our trip before moving onto the rest of the images from Harris & Lewis. . . . #visitouterhebrides #westernisles #outerhebrides #MyCalMacStory #seeuistsoon #scotlandshots #northuist #ukpotd #berneray #scottishcollective #schottland #causeway #simplyscotland #liveforthestory #scotspirit #ig_scotland #scotland_greatshots #yourscotland #scotland #icu_scotland  #thisisscotland #hiddenscotland #unlimitedscotland #instascotland #lovescotland #explore_britain #scotlandisnow #scottishcollective #landscape_lovers #visitscotland

Wild Shetland ponies of South Uist. . While we were driving along the road to Loch Druidbeg, we came across all these guys 😁 @mrs_mooham was in her element! They were so friendly and curious. Then to make things even better, we bumped into a wee foal at the end of the road, who was very interested in meeting our dog 😂 . . . #visitouterhebrides #westernisles #outerhebrides #MyCalMacStory #southuist #scotlandshots #shetlandponies #ukpotd #lovetheworld #scottishcollective #schottland #osmaps #simplyscotland #liveforthestory #scotspirit #ig_scotland #scotland_greatshots #yourscotland #scotland #icu_scotland  #thisisscotland #hiddenscotland #unlimitedscotland #instascotland #lovescotland #explore_britain #scotlandisnow #scottishcollective #landscape_lovers #visitscotland

💚🐧 My puffin! ⁠ ⁠ Hahahah Charles is gonna kill me for saying this, but he could totally blend in with the puffins (who are the only residents of Lunga Island) of the Treshnish Isles. Walking through the grassy cliffs, we had to take care to ensure we didn't step into any Puffin Burrows, coz they're everywhere!!⁠ ⁠ What an experience this day was!!⁠ ⁠ #oban #abplace2b #mycalmacstory #wildaboutargyll #scotland #loves_scotland #yourscotland #ig_scotland #visitscotland #thescottishcollective #scotland_greatshots #unlimitedscotland #thisisscotland #icu_scotland #cbviews #ig_shotz #yourcoasts #gloriousbritain #instabritain #elitecontentcreators #travel #Lunga #TreshnishIsles⁠ ⁠

Callanish Stones In Silhouette On the Isle of Lewis around dusk, the Callanish Stones in silhouette, intrigue and mystery surrounding this magical place. The Callanish Stones consist of a stone circle of thirteen stones with a monolith near the middle. Five rows of standing stones connect to this circle. Two long rows of stones running almost parallel to each other from the stone circle to the north-northeast form a kind of avenue. In addition, there are shorter rows of stones to the west-southwest, south and east-northeast. The stones are all of the same rock type, namely the local Lewisian gneiss. Within the stone circle is a chambered tomb to the east of the central stone. A popular visitor attraction on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland. #stormhour #fujifilm_uk the #repostmyfuji #repostmyfujifilm #visitouterhebrides #mycalmacstory
