The perfect holiday snap locations
Eilean Donan Castle
There’s nothing quite like the sheer grandeur of a castle to make you feel part of something. From the architecture and endless stairwells to the noble and significant residents both past and present, a castle is a place where your mind can run wild. Luckily for you in Scotland, there are over 2000 castles. We recommend Eilean Donan Castle, which overlooks the Isle of Skye at the point where three lochs meet. This is one of Scotland’s most photographed castles and it’s very easy to see why.
A very well known song and an even more beautiful place. Do you know where I’m talking about? It can only be the ‘bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park is often hailed by many as the ‘gateway to the Highlands’ and whether it be a picnic by the loch’s edge, the snow-capped mountains in the distance or the excitement of a long walk in the woods or a trek up Conic Hill, there’s most definitely a picture perfect opportunity at stake.
Ever found yourself gazing at something in utter awe and just being completely mesmerized by the beauty that is in front of you? Well at Luskentyre Sands on the Isle of Harris there’s absolutely no denying that you won’t be. Luskentyre Beach is simply a place where you can really press pause and forget about all your troubles, it’s a little glimpse of heaven. On a warm sunny day, when the tide is neither fully in or out but there’s just enough to bring the beautiful aquamarine and turquoise hues over the bay, you almost have to pinch yourself to make sure you are not dreaming. Luskentyre Beach offers all who a visit a picturesque and peaceful oasis.
If there’s one city in Scotland that everybody knows and loves, it’s got to be Glasgow. A day spent here is one that will be full of unique culture that you won't find anywhere else! Edinburgh might well be the capital but Glasgow remains very much unrivalled by it. Be inspired by its art, history, culture and stunning architecture. From the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, the River Clyde itself, an array of shopping centres and independent boutiques, award-winning music venues, mural trail, the Hogwarts likening of Glasgow University and so much more. You’ll certainly not be too far from a photo opportunity.
Isle of Skye
‘Speed Bonnie boat’, sail over the sea to the Isle of Skye famed for its towering,ragged mountains, and coastline. It’s a world-class destination for walkers and climbers. Skye is a truly mystical and magical place and if there’s one thing about Skye that’ll leave a lasting impression on you, it’s got to be the stunning scenery. Whether you’re driving or walking you can see many of the island’s geological features, such as the Old Man of Storr, the Quiraing and the Cuillin, however, if you’re planning on exploring and capturing these sights on camera be sure to take your sturdiest pair of boots. Let the adventure begin!
The Home of Golf, where Kate met Wills, home to Scotland’s Oldest University and named after Scotland’s patron saint, it can only be the seaside town, St Andrews. St Andrews has an interesting history and its iconic cathedral was built in the 12th century and was the largest building in Scotland for 7 centuries. The ruins of both the cathedral and castle will take you on a journey back in time. The castle’s underground mines passages and dungeons still remain giving a real taste of Scotland in the medieval ages. If it’s not the history you’re here for, there’s always the beach at West Sands or if it’s the whole town you want to take a tour of for your Instagram story then you’ll please to know it’s all within walking distance!
