25 Reasons Why Scotland Must Be On Your Bucket List

Scotland is more than just kilts and haggises – as a country with a rich and ancient history and striking natural landscapes, it is a great destination for photographically-inclined travelers.

Scottish landscapes are fairly diverse, with mountains, bogs, countless coastal islands, sea-side cliffs, and the occasional forest. Sweeping, epic vistas seem to be a common sight, judging by these photos.

One of the most interesting things about Scotland’s most photogenic places is just how well the natural landscapes and historical structures blend together. The ancient castles and crumbling bridges throughout Scotland almost seem like natural extensions of the countryside. Which, in a way, they are – because of the dearth of trees in this rugged country, Scots often had to construct their buildings out of rocks from the country around them.

I lived on the West Coast, near the Isle of Mull for 12 years and practically any of these photos could have been taken nearby. Such a diverse country, with breath-taking scenery everywhere, if you are ever over nearby really worth a few days (or weeks) but keep away from the 'main spots' ;like Edinburgh etc, really seek the countryside, there is plenty.

I liked all the photos but the one by Stephen Emerson, with the purple forest and trail, looked romantic and I would like the walk, and surely it would lead to a beautiful cottage, for a vacation spot. Ahhhh well it was a nice dream. Thank you for sharing all of these photo's. Never knew of such beauty.
