Phew. All that driving through stunning terrains can get a bit tiring, so just having a wee sit in a stunning forest instead. Honestly though, this placed called The Hermitage is a must stop if you're driving between Inverness and Edinburgh! ⠀ ⠀ Incredible pitstop on our road trip across @VisitScotland with @AvisrentalIndia⠀ ⠀ #CAOwithAvisv #UnlockTravel #AvisIndia #SelfDrive #AvisSelfDrive⠀ ⠀ #thehermitage #dunkel #britain_talent #excellent_britain #wonderlustscotland #scotlandlover #lovescotland #loves_scotland #igersscots #igersscotland #woodland #scotlandphotography #seeingscotland #scotland_lover #scenicscotland #outstandingscotland #scotlandinsta #scotlandthebrave #scotlandscenery #bonnyscotland #scottishhighlands #yourscotland #yourcountryside #yourbritain

Have you been to Edinburgh, the Scottish gemstone? I had the big luck to be there two times in 2019 and I fell in love with this city. It’s not the castles, the old buildings and restaurants, bars and the friendly people, it’s also the surroundings. There are seven hills in Edinburgh and this shot was taken at Arthur’s Seat, a nice 250 m high extinct volcano which is the highest peak of Edinburgh. The hike is modest but can be slippery when wet or snowy. I was expecting a spectacular sunset in addition to the spectacular view over the city but not this day which was rather mild and a bit disappointing at first. But when I checked my shots of this moment I discovered the mild and peaceful glow and thought it’s worth sharing with you guys. . . . . .

Edinburgh has such pretty buildings! I’ll have to go again to see it properly. . I had a whole day that was good followed by someone stealing my coat. It’s weird because I tend to get upset over the small things, but the big things are somehow more manageable. . Thought of the day: Sometimes you can get upset with the little things because you need somewhere else to redirect your anger...point is, if you’re upset over something always make sure you really think about WHY? Anger comes from sadness and/or lack of self-worth. . . . #edinburgh #thisisedinburgh #igersedinburgh #edinphoto #scotland #igersscotland #visitscotland #loveedinburgh #instascotland #scotspirit #lovescotland #insta_scotland #instaedinburgh #edinburghcastle #edinburghlife #loves_scotland #exploreedinburgh #scotlandlover #visitedinburgh #royalmile #brilliantmoments #edfringe #igersscots #explorescotland #ig_scotland #myedinburgh #igscotland #icu_scotland #anger #thoughtoftheday

Glen Coe was one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited. Photos can't do it justice, it is pure magic. Ps. Speaking of magic, can you guess which Harry Potter movie was filmed here? I'll give you a clue: Buckbead also walked these grounds. . . . . #scotland #travel #travelblog #travelling #harrypotter #travelscotland #lovescotland #uk #instatravel #wanderlust #beautiful #travelphoto #travelphotography #glencoe #magic #photooftheday

The Quiraing, Isle of Skye.⁠ .⁠ During our stay on Skye, I wasn't able to do the Quirang hike due to dodgy weather and other activies we'd planned in advance, but returned a week later on my own to do the walk. Unfortunately I was met with wind, rain and cloud once again, i.e. a typical Scottish summers day! It didn't stop me from enjoying the hike, but I'm looking forward to returning one day to complete it in glorious sunshine!!⁠ .⁠ The Quiraing is a landslip on the eastern face of Meall na Suiramach, the northernmost summit of the Trotternish on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. The whole of the Trotternish Ridge escarpment was formed by a great series of landslips; the Quiraing is the only part of the slip still moving—the road at its base, near Flodigarry, requires repairs each year.⁠ ⁠ The name Quiraing comes from Old Norse 'Kví Rand', which means "Round Fold". Within the fold is The Table, an elevated plateau hidden amongst the pillars. It is said that the fold was used to conceal cattle from Viking raiders. ⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #visitscotland #wildscotland #scotsmagazine #outandaboutscotland #scottishcollective #loves_scotland #thisisscotland #somewhereinscotland #scotlandtravel #simplyscotland #ig_scotland #lovescotland #scotlandshots #scotlandscenery #beautifulscotland #scotlandtrip #explore_scotland #scotland_greatshots #scotlandtravel #scotland #icu_scotland #igscotland #love_scotland #scotlandexplore #scotland_insta #isleofskyescotland #isleofskye #quiraing

Real girls are never perfect and Perfect girls are never real ❣️ . . Don’t ya just love a quote 😊🙌🏻 and a secret waterfall that got me very excited. She was an absolute little gem. 6 miles including deserted sandy beaches, a broch, fairy tail castle and this waterfall. Watched the entire time by a group of seals. I would say I was a pretty lucky girl. Me and Rosie enjoyed our walk in between the showers, I would definitely recommend this one. . . #adventuregirl #beautifulscotland #waterfall💦 #highlands #dunrobincastle #hiddenscotland #lovescotland #thisisscotland #fitnessgirl #beautifulgirls #blonde #hikergirl #beachbabe4 #naturelovers #gooutside #walkingscotland #munrobagger #activerecovery #views #scotlandexplore #explore #mytiso #fitmom #girlswhohike #girlswhotravel #dontgochasingwaterfalls

St Mungo mural, by Smug. Mungo is Glasgow's patron saint, born in the 6th century. St Mungo was said to have performed four miracles in Glasgow. The following verse is used to remember Mungo's miracles: Here is the bird that never flew  Here is the tree that never grew  Here is the bell that never rang  Here is the fish that never swam The Bird: Mungo restored life to a robin, that had been killed by some of his classmates. The Tree: Mungo had been left in charge of a fire in Saint Serf's monastery. He fell asleep and the fire went out. Taking a hazel branch, he restarted the fire. The Bell: the bell is thought to have been brought by Mungo from Rome. It was said to have been used in services and to mourn the deceased. The original bell no longer exists, and a replacement, created in the 1640s, is now on display in Glasgow. The Fish: refers to the story about Queen Languoreth of Strathclyde who was suspected of infidelity by her husband. King Riderch demanded to see her ring, which he claimed she had given to her lover. In reality the King had thrown it into the River Clyde. Faced with execution she appealed for help to Mungo, who ordered a messenger to catch a fish in the river. On opening the fish, the ring was miraculously found inside, which allowed the Queen to clear her name. Today the bird, tree, bell and fish form the four elements of the crest of Glasgow City Council. St Mungo is also responsible for the motto of his city, based on his original prayer: "Lord let Glasgow flourish through the preaching of thy word and praising thy name." Since 1699 this has been shortened to "Let Glasgow flourish".

Sometimes you have to find a quiet place amidst all the hustle and bustle in order to rejuvenate your soul and gather yourself. At least, I do. But I'm an introvert. But everyone appreciates beauty and tranquility and the sounds of nature, right?

First of probably many fish photos. Out working with a local fisheries trust to do sea trout monitoring surveys and all fish were released alive and well back into the water once sampling was finished. Good few days out.
