    I recently visited the brand new  Pitlochry Dam and Visitor Centre. It's a funky building overlooking the famous dam and the Salmon Ladder. Inside you have an exhibition of how Hydro Electric Schemes work plus lots of interactive activities for young and old and a film celebrating the 'Tunnel Tigers' hard work. There is a shop on site and a cafe and I bet the outside terrace will be a great place to sit in the summer with a coffee. The best thing is that it's totally free...

    Some of my favourites include:

    The Hill House (Helensburgh)

    http://www.nts.org.uk/Property/The-Hill-House/

    This Domestic House designed by Rennie MacKintosh, I felt unlike many "historic houses" has a real feeling of a loved, family home. A great insight into not only design, but in to society in Scotland at the time - it was built for Glasgow Publisher Blackie. I found it really interesting to learn too, that many houses in Helensburgh (which is beautiful, by the way!) were built by notable architects for some of Glasgow's well to do at the time. Back in the early 1900s this house was no more special than the others around it.

    The Lighthouse (Glasgow)

    Scotland's home of design, located in the former Glasgow Herald Buildings.
    Great place for an unusual view of the city, and great touring shows which have included the likes of Paul Smith.

    I also love some of the more "popular" attractions:
    The Kelpies is a current favourite  and ongoing Crathes  Castle or Castle Fraser - where you get to stand on the roof! 

    Hope this is some food for thought :)

    Based in the Scottish Borders, Aberdeenshire has a special place in my heart.

    Abbotsford House in the Borders is up there for me. The audio tour is great and the surrounding gardens make for a lovely walk.


    Wouldn't mind calling this place home.  :) 


    Looking back up at the house from the banks of the Tweed.
