Scottish World Heritage Sites

There are six fantastic UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Scotland - how many of them have you managed to visit?  :)

The six sites include the historic cotton mill village of New Lanark, the Antonine Wall, Heart of Neolithic Orkney, St Kilda, The Old & New Towns of Edinburgh and as of June 2015 - the Forth Bridge!

    This is a film we've created to promote visits to New Lanark this summer! We're very much new to the 'film production' game so would love to know what everyone thinks and if you have any tips / suggestions on how to improve :)

    That's a really good little film. Looks like a great day out with lots to see and do.  New Lanark has been on my very long list of places to visit in Scotland for ages now.  It's only an hour from home so no idea why I haven't got round to visiting yet.  I need to make a point of visiting this summer so I can write about a blog topic closer to home for a change.
    I'm a Scottish travel blogger and freelance writer with an extensive knowledge of travelling in Scotland.  I'm always on the road exploring my wonderful country.  I love remote places, history and the great outdoors.

    @NewLanark is such an interesting place and a must visit attraction. I managed a wee snap there earlier this year

    New Lanark historic cotton mill and reformed community has so much to offer.  Spent a nice day on Sunday walking to the falls of Clyde then having Afternoon tea in the cafe.  I was the surprised to find a piano recital in the afternoon which was a great way to finish the day.

    I visited New Lanark yesterday after a few years of not been there. I was very surprise with their information facility. They are now even provided information in many languages- including catalan language.  They were very helpful and the ice cream was superb.

    @John_WelcometoFife What a fantastic photo, the views from the top of the bridge must have been amazing!

    @NewLanark is going on my list of places to visit this summer, I don't know why I've never been.  That will take my tally of World Heritage sites visited to 4 - only 3 to go!

    I've been fortunate enough to have visited them all. They are all special in their own individual ways but the one that made the most impact on me was St Kilda which has the accolade of being both a natural and a cultural world heritage site. It was the least accessible involving a four-hour boat journey each way over choppy Atlantic waters, but it was so worth it
