Land of legends, warriors, fantastic beings and impressive landscapes. We travel through those legendary corners of Scotland that make it so special and that make it a traveler’s dream. Are you accompanying us on the adventure?
1. Old Man Storr
One of the best known images of Scotland is found on the magical Isle of Skye. Old Man of Storr is a curious rock formation that overlooks one of the most impressive and breathtaking landscapes in the Highlands.
2. Eilean Donan Castle
Another of the symbols of Scotland. Between three lakes, on a small island that can be reached by a bridge, the image of that castle simply enchants. Rescued from neglect and restored a century ago, the official residence of the McRae clan represents Scottish magic and history like few other places.
3. Fairy Pools
We return to the Isle of Skye to enjoy one of Scotland’s most enchanting legendary places. They are the Pools of the Fairies, beautiful natural pools at the foothills of the Cuillin mountains. What is the name? To the popular belief that these extraordinary beings lived in them. Seeing its beauty, it is easy to believe.
4. Loch Ness
There is no trip to Scottish lands that does not stop at this place. And it is that the mystery that the waters of Loch Ness hide continues to attract the attention of thousands and thousands of visitors. But the truth is that, with or without a monster, it is one of the most beautiful corners of Scotland.
5. Glencoe Valley
Scotland is a wild land that hides corners like this spectacular valley of imposing rocky massifs, streams, waterfalls and lonely moors where life seems to have stopped long ago. A place, by the way, with a sad history. We will not tell you about it, better to know it in the place where it happened, we will only tell you that it is a terrible massacre for revenge.
6. Stirling, one of the legendary corners of Scotland not to be missed
Does the name William Wallace ring a bell? For sure YES. Well, one of the bloodiest battles of Scotland’s war of independence took place here. The Scots, led by Wallace, managed to defeat the English troops. Much later, near the castle, a tower was erected in memory of that historical episode and its protagonist.
7. Glenfinnan Viaduct
Yes, it is one of the sets in the Harry Potter movies. It really is the Glenfinnan Viaduct, on the road between Fort William and Mallaig. Unmistakable with its 21 arches and its curved shape. The Jacobite train runs along these tracks, taking a tour of some of the most incredible legendary corners of Scotland.
8. Isle of Arran
Located on the west coast, they say that it is like Scotland in miniature, and it is that in its small area you can admire landscapes as rugged as those of the Highlands and much softer, such as those of the Lowlands. Of course, castles and lakes are not lacking.
9. Edinburgh Castle
In the best-known and most historic city in Scotland, we make a stop at its magnificent castle. A spectacular construction raised on a mound of volcanic origin from which you can admire fabulous views. Here you can admire, among other treasures, the Stone of Destiny, on which the Scottish kings were crowned.
10. Ben Nevis
It is in Scottish lands that the “roof” of Great Britain is found. Ben Nevis, with its 1344 meters, offers one of the most spectacular images of Scotland, as are the fabulous cliffs and peaks that are the length and breadth of this massif where we finish our journey through legendary corners of Scotland.
