These are the Callanish Standing Stones located on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. . . This is one of most intact stone circles (actually shaped like a cross)  in Europe made from Lewisian Gneiss - one of the oldest rocks in Britain dated 3 billion years old! . . The standing stones were erected 5000 years ago making this older than Stonehenge and is nicknamed Stonehenge of the North. . . Definitely going on our bucket list! . .

The Old Man of Storr on the Isle of Skye.⁠ .⁠ This image was taken from the side of the road with my 100-400 lens...I like this shot as there is a person in a white top sitting to the left of the base of the pinnacle to give it some scale.⁠..i.e. it's enormous! .⁠ I hiked to the base of the Old Man later that week, but like this shot it was mostly surrounded by cloud (more pics to come!)⁠ .⁠ .⁠ The Old Man of Storr is a large pinnacle of rock located on the north of the Isle of Skye, in Scotland, in an area known as ‘Trotternish’. The 50m-high rocky outcrop of crumbling basalt is prominent above the road 6 miles north of Portree and can be seen for miles around. It is also the highest point of the Trotternish Ridge. The entire Trotternish ridge area was formed by a massive ancient landside, and the Storr, which is composed mainly of ancient lava flows, is the most easily recognizable landmark on the island and one of the most photographed. Indeed, the opening scenes in the Ridley Scott's 2012 movie Prometheus were shot at the Old Man of Storr. ⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #visitscotland #wildscotland #scotsmagazine #outandaboutscotland #scottishcollective #loves_scotland #thisisscotland #somewhereinscotland #scotlandtravel #simplyscotland #ig_scotland #lovescotland #scotlandshots #scotlandscenery #beautifulscotland #scotlandtrip #explore_scotland #scotland_greatshots #scotlandtravel #scotland #icu_scotland #igscotland #love_scotland #scotlandexplore #scotland_insta #isleofskyescotland #isleofskye #oldmanofstorr

When your day job is hauling creels around here in the summer. 💙 #shetlandbydrone

Pierwsze cięcie za nami. Pierwsze baby hair spakowane na pamiątkę. I od razu dziecko starsze o rok.

Another day another Sunrise . So I did 2 back to back sunrises this week, both without much sleep afterwards, the result being I felt as if I'd been on a long haul flight from Canada after spending a month there. However it was worth it for the sunrises themselves, I think I got pretty lucky both days, so I'll not complain too much. Kingsbarns as a beach I do love, but i often feel it's just too far away and not completely mind bogglingly beautiful to visit more often. Then I get some shots i like and wonder why I don't visit more often. Anyway folks I hope you approve, have a great Sunday!! . . . #visitscotland #greatbritain #sunrise_sunset_photogroup #sunset_perfection #sunsetlover #raw_longexposure #raw_waters #uk_greatshots #uklongexposures #uk_scenery #ukpotd #scotlandmagazine #scotlandsites #scotland_greatshots #ig_theundiscovered #discoverscotland #myscotland #mycoast #yourcoast #yourscotland #thisisscotland #thescottishcollective #thebestcapture #explore_scotland_ #scotland4you #ig_scotland #hiddenscotland

Greyfriars Bobby guarded the grave of his owner for 14 years until he himself died in 1872. To this day, locals honour his memory by leaving sticks, toys and flowers on his final resting place 🐶⚰️ #greyfriarsbobby #dogsofinstagram #greyfriars #edinburgh #thisisscotland #visitscotland #scotland #unitedkingdom

One of the many murals on the walls of Sandy’s bothy in Sutherland. They survive, decades after his departure. The damp and passage of time is slowly eating away at their substance but they remain. No doubt this exotic image would have come from his travels as a young man during the war years. Before he started to roam the mountains in search of somewhere to call ‘home’. The modern world and way of life was ill suited to him and the life of solitude out here in Sutherland was to become his life for more than 30 years. He was a colourful character and at times had brushes with the law and caused upset to some of the locals. He even had a visit from Sheriff’s officers trying to serve him notice on an overdue Poll Tax Bill. Like me he probably just burnt it 😂🤷‍♂️. #suilven_731m #bothyhermit #onelifeliveit #onelifeisnotenough #sutherland #bothy #capewrath #ig_scotland #mba #thisisscotland

We arrived in Mull with 2 hours to make a 1 hour drive to the small boat that would take us to the islands, so we had to pick a couple of spots to see on the way and took our time. It was really early and we still had to eat, luckily there was a McDonald's in a small village not far from the port... We didn't feel so lucky when we got there and discovered it was MacDonalds petrol station. 🤦‍♂️ At least we found the shipwrecks, and a little bonus of 6 seals lazing around the shallow waters close by. . #shipwreck #thisisscotland #somewhereinscotland #scotlandphotography #scottishislands #isleofmull #wondermore #explore_scotland_ #exploremore #getoutandplay #landscapephotography #landscape #wildlife #amazing_shots #planetearth #moodynature #bestoftheday #photooftheday #instadaily #instagrammer #blogger #visitscotland #moodedits #moodygrams

Beautiful Glamis Castle yesterday. The ancestral home to the Earls of Strathmore and Kinghorne, inspiration for Shakespeare’s Macbeth and childhood home of HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. #glamis #castle #visitscotland #scotlandshots #historicalplaces #scotland_lover #scottishcastle #thisisscotland #beautifulscotland #scottishhistory

Housemartins. Trying to take pictures of these bad boys is insanely difficult and great fun because they fly at 4 times the top speed of a Boeing 777. Anyways there's a big old housemartin colony next door to the big old puffin colony at Catterline, that's where these were taken . . . . . #aberdeen #aberdeenshire #trelongbay #catterline #geology #coastline #yourscotland #yourcoast #seascape #coast #housemartin #highlands #birding #historicscotland #thisisscotland #visitabdn #aboutaberdeen #beautifulabdn #scotland #lovescotland #visitscotland #travelscotland #scotland_insta #icu_scotland #birds #scottishwildlifephotos #scottishwildlife #nikon #nikond800e

When you're in a long distance relationship, snapshots are inevitable. (Electronic) Postcards from Edinburgh always makes me feel rather emotional - this sums up what I love about the city: gothic with its sumptious layers of history, quiescent with its stoicism, and utterly beautiful with an inimitable quaint charm. I feel blessed to walk through its plains and call it my third home.

Another fantastic holiday in my favourite place ever. Swam with seals, seen a sea otter, porpoises, dolphins, sea eagles, puffins. The most amazing views. 🥰 Just hope CalMac get themselves sorted for next year 😢 #scotland #travel #lovescotland #thisisscotland #hiddenscotland #isleofbarra

Another day, another bus trip. This time I was taking the Ullapool Pipe Band to the Lochcarron Highland Games. It was a good day out and although the band were a bit depleted due to school holidays, they were still sounding amazing. Thought I'd have a brief photo stop at the viewpoint on the tops of Aultbea seeing as the sun was starting to set on my way home. . . . . . #lovemyjob #westerbus #aultbea #highlands #scotland #visitscotland #scotspirit #lovescotland #ig_scotland #icu_scotland #hiddenscotland #osmaps #getoutside #loves_scotland #scottishcollective #exploretocreate #visualsoflife #justgoshoot #landscape #wanderlust #highlandcollective #instascotland #thisisscotland #igers_scotland #highlandsofscotland #igscotland #unlimitedscotland #scotland_greatshots #your_scotland #scotlandshots

The grandeur of Scotland's landscape allows you to see the Earth's geography and physics in action. In this picture a Raven is watching a weather front hit Jura - clouds breaking over the lengthy island, like waves on a rocky foreshore. Anyone else feel a little small and insignificant? . . . #beautifulscotland #instascotland #scotland #ig_scotland #abplace2b #yourscotland #loves_scotland #wildaboutargyll #visitscotland #scotlandisnow #myargyll #argyllsecretcoast #thisisscotland #hiddenscotland #uk_potd #scotlandmagazine #scotland_greatshots #scotlandshots #unlimitedscotland #naturalworld #cloudporn #raven #weather #weatherfront #coast #island #innerhebridies

The first village of Skye Kyleakin was calling me from the very first minute we passed the bridge and I was trying to understand what is so familiar over there and why I should see it. Besides the gorgeous harbor and the ruins of the 14th century #castlemoil it has fantastic atmosphere which became an inspiration for the author of my creative desk diary. I’ve been looking at Kyleakin from January. #letthedreamscometrue, #stayinspired, #isleofskyescotland, #thisisscotland, #mairihedderwick

Watching sunset from last month before I last left Scotland. Such a calm peaceful evening. Moments like that are one of the true wonders of life on the road. #stuartcooksailing #adventuretime #sunset #wonders #moments #scotland #thisisscotland #visitscotland #scotland_lover #discoverscotland #lifeontheroad

Driving along Loch Shin #lochshin #sutherland #scotland

Flashback to when I was a ginger, what do you think?

5,000-year-old stone circles. Why and how the people who did erect them remains a mystery hidden behind the mask of time.

Standing on Queens Quay looking down the River Clyde earlier in the year.

After a hot day in Trossachs... a little bit of snow is what I want. Even if it's just in the photo and the memories, it's cool. Pic from early May, my only snowy summit #stobbinnein #munrobagging #scotland #munros #scottishmountains #scotlandhighlands #hikingday #mountain #scottishhills #thehighlands #hiking #hillwalking #hillwalkingscotland #walkhighlands #mountains #nature #scotlandsbeauty #thisisscotland #шотландия #горы #вгорах #треккинг

More thistles....like me it can be a bit prickly. #scotland #igscotland #thistle #nature #thisisscotland

So many pretty flowers in one location, it makes my heart so happy ❤️

Sometimes even the smallest changes matter, here's a progress photo of my face, I'm glad I'm starting to look as happy as I feel.

Oh the ways I would renovate and restore you, you beautiful, slightly creepy old home ❤️ Aka: How a qualified interior designer talks dirty to their dream projects 😂

The thing I love most about hosting (apart from the baking and cooking) is the wonderful array of diverse people from all over the world who come to stay. Each one so different, except in one way - they all leave smiling. When I see that, it makes my day.

Some more Harris Tweed for your feed 🧟‍♂️

Some satisfying pictures from my hike up Arthur’s Seat outside Edinburgh! 👘

Vintage Coca-cola spotted in small village Scotland! I like how the red contrasts the pastel blue 🎒🧢

An honest man here lies at rest, As e’er God with His image blest: The friend of man, the friend of truth; The friend of age, and guide of youth: Few hearts like his, with virtue warm’d, Few heads with knowledge so inform’d: If there’s another world, he lives in bliss; If there is none, he made the best of this. . . @mckinlay3449 (follow if you like loads more to come) . . #poetry #robertburns #explore #scotland #poetrycommunity #travel #visitscotland #writersofinstagram #robertburnsbirthplacemuseum #wanderlust #scotland_greatshots #poetsofinstagram #alloway #explorejogja #scotlandsbeauty #poetryisnotdead #rabbieburns #photography #scotland_insta #poem #robertburnsday #exploretocreate #instascotland #writer #robertburnswines #travelphotography #thisisscotland #poems #ayrshire #travelgram
