Scotland is more than just kilts and haggises – as a country with a rich and ancient history and striking natural landscapes, it is a great destination for photographically-inclined travelers.
Scottish landscapes are fairly diverse, with mountains, bogs, countless coastal islands, sea-side cliffs, and the occasional forest. Sweeping, epic vistas seem to be a common sight, judging by these photos.
One of the most interesting things about Scotland’s most photogenic places is just how well the natural landscapes and historical structures blend together. The ancient castles and crumbling bridges throughout Scotland almost seem like natural extensions of the countryside. Which, in a way, they are – because of the dearth of trees in this rugged country, Scots often had to construct their buildings out of rocks from the country around them.
