the Scotland travel blog that shows you how to get outside and explore Scotland.

I’m Kate, a Scotland travel writer, photographer, OS #getoutside champion and Visit Scotland Ambassador.
From exploring the Scottish islands to our best places to stay, let me inspire you to discover Scotland.

from the bonnie banks to the highlands and islands…

Thinking of driving the North Coast 500 or heading to Scotland’s sunning north-west coast for beautiful beaches, sea lochs and mountains? 

However, don’t forget there is so much more to see in Scotland!

Why not go mountain biking in the Outer Hebrides, discover the eight whisky distilleries on Islay, or explore the pretty fishing villages of the Moray Firth and the East Neuk of Fife?  If you fancy city tripping make sure you visit Glasgow as well as the capital, Edinburgh and head south to Dumfries and Galloway, to camp in the dark sky park, and to discover the hidden Solway Firth. 

Fancy getting outside? Well, Scotland has 30 great trails and 282 mountains over 3000ft to climb, as well as two National Parks – Loch Lomond & the Trossachs and the Cairngorms – a walkers paradise!
