Scotland

Welcome to my new page dedicated to my home country of Scotland! I write a lot about Scotland, and I wanted to showcase it separately to the worldwide destinations I write about. “An Orcadian At Home”, let’s say.

I’ve got loads more Scotland content to come – so keep checking back for new posts!

Yesnaby, Orkney

Read all my posts about where I grew up – the fascinating islands of Orkney, tucked away in the north east of Scotland.

Glasgow, Scotland - People Make Glasgow

Glasgow is very underrated compared to the nearby capital, but is very much worth a visit in its own right! From the beautiful city centre to the hip hop happening neighbourhoods like the West End, Glasgow has endless entertainment on offer.

Old Man Of Storr, Isle Of Skye, Scotland

Ah, the Isle Of Skye. One of the most popular areas of Scotland, and yet it took me almost 30 years to visit! I am far from an expert (yet) but I really think it deserves the popularity and is a must-see on anyone’s visit to Scotland.

Hiking Glencoe, Scotland

I cannot even tell you how much I adore Glencoe. The gem of Scotland and one of the best road trips in the UK, not to mention an absolute paradise for hikers and photographers. More posts to come!

Tobermory, Isle Of Mull

Possibly my new favourite place in Scotland, the Isle Of Mull is a treasure trove of pretty villages, fascinating history and lots of mindblowing islands, like the volcanic rock of Staffa and the beautiful island of Iona.

Argyll & Bute only made it onto my radar recently, but it packs a punch with coastal villages, endless lochs & magical castles!

Loch Doine, Trossachs, Scotland

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park is one of only two national parks in Scotland. Straddling both Argyll & Bute (above) and Perthshire (below), this deserves its own section, although I’ve only written one post so far.

St. Monans, Fife, Scotland

Fife is incredibly overlooked, admittedly myself included! This needs to change because there is so much on offer, from the best seafood in Scotland to adorable villages!

Craigievar Castle, Aberdeenshire, Scotland

What Aberdeenshire lacks in mountainous scenery (and there is even some of that if you look for it!), it more than makes up with a plethora of epic castles and coastal towns.

Perthshire is fast becoming one of my favourite Scottish counties, with its beautiful lochs and sweeping glens. It’s also hands down the BEST place in Scotland to visit in autumn!

Seilebost beach, Isle Of Harris, Outer Hebrides, Scotland

The Outer Hebrides, comprised of a chain of islands lining the north west coast of Scotland, is home to some of our best beaches as well as fantastic history and traditions that have been kept alive. We’ve only visited Lewis & Harris so far, but it’s a great place to start.

Miscellaneous Scotland posts

Outwith area posts and guides, I’ve also got a handful of posts that aren’t really tied to a specific area, or if they are then they don’t fit into the pigeon holes above.
