Year of Coast and Waters 2020

VisitScotlandLindsayVisitScotlandLindsay Member, Moderator, VisitScotland Staff

Next year sees us celebrating Scotland's vast Coast and Water environment so what better way to make a start than sharing our favourite places with each other.

Maybe some will offer inspiration in planning next years holiday around our themed year, or just get you out and about enjoying what is on our doorstep.

Here are my favourite photos from both my home in the Scottish Borders and near Dundee where I now live.

This is Glen Clova and Loch Brandy in the Angus Glens not far from DundeeOur Dog Izzy up Glen ClovaLeaderfoot Viaduct spanning the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders. If you continue along that road you come to the site of the old Roman Fort Trimontium and then onto Melrose, where you will find Melrose Abbey and the start point for walking the Eildon Hills.  

The River Tweed flowing into Kelso past Floors Castle. The stones to the left are the remnants of Roxburgh Castle and on the hill in the background is the ruins of Hume Castle 


This was literally outside my front door and is the River Teviot near Roxburgh in the Scottish Borders.

Please show us your best water and coast photos :)

    I love living near Perth and having the river Tay so close. Many of our favourite walks have great views of the river. 

    View from Kinnoull Hill 

    Also the Hermitage, just north of Perth, near Dunkeld. This is Black Linn waterfall - a good place to see salmon jumping up the falls.

    Kenmore and Loch Tay are also perfect for a day out. Visit the Crannog Centre, take a boat trip out on the loch, hire canoes or dip your toe in the water for wild swimming. There are also plenty of walks in the area

    Join in my new chapter over on the blog. Discovering all things that make Scotland the place everyone wants to visit.

    Our favourite place is definitely the Gulf of Corryvreckan - home to the world's 3rd largest whirlpool area !
