If you're like me, when you travel you love looking for the off the beaten track gems where you won't be fighting other tourists armed with their cameras to get a good view and so you can immerse yourself in the experience. The more I explore Scotland, the more I am grateful for wide open spaces, beautiful scenery and the calmness of a sea breeze, without having to battle crowds along the way.
So I'm putting the call out to all locals or people who know Scotland well - what are your favourite hidden gems around the country? Where is best for a scenic view, a quiet pint or a picnic with an amazing backdrop? Here are some Instagram posts I've saved recently as inspiration for my next trip!
