This is Rannoch Moor photographed at 50mph 📷 Everytime I drive through this landscape, I feel like there are simply not enough car parks here to be able and capture proper photos of its beauty (there are a couple, but they're very small and easy to miss). And then I remember that that is exactly what makes this place so special and hopefully nothing will ever change about it! Rannoch Moor is one of Scotland's - if not Europe's - last resorts of wilderness. There is nothing else for miles upon miles in all directions. The only way to get close up to this section of the Moor is to walk - the West Highland Way for example, leads right through it and definitely made for my favourite day along the trek last year. Imagine, what would happen if this place would suddenly become accessible to the masses that whizz past it every day. What would it do to the water, the plants and the animals that live here? What would become of the wilderness? No, I'm glad that there are no more car parks along the A82 at Rannoch Moor. Besides, you can still take good pictures from a driving car! . . . #blogscot #Scotland #scotspirit #igersscotland #omgb #bbcscotlandpics #storiesfromscotland #travelscotland #traveldeeper #somewhereinscotland #thisisscotland  #lovescotland #scotlandsbeauty #scotlandlover #Scotland_greatshots #mybritain #topukphoto #hiddenscotland #scottishhighlands #getoutside #inpraiseofslowness #keepitwild #naturelovers #inspiredbynature #takeahike #landscape_lovers #ventureout #protectourplanet #nextstopnature  #thehappynow

I waited for about 5 minutes to see if I could capture someone walking up this path but it wasn’t happening.
Everything you need to know about roe deer antlers and a brilliant image too from 📸 : @rebeccarosetanner Roe deer lose their antlers around December and regrow them for the spring. Antlers are made from bone so they're quite light, but strong! As they grow, they're covered in a protective layer of vascular skin known as velvet which supplies nutrients to the growing bone. The velvet falls off when the antler is fully grown and the bone itself dies. Those weird looking kiwis growing out of this guy's head are just the start of this process. #scotnature #scottishnaturalheritage #biodiversity

Thirlestane Castle dates back to at least the 14th century, when a large Border fort was built on the site to defend the approach to Edinburgh from the south. The central part of the present castle was completed in 1590, remodelled in the 1670s, and then again in the 1840s. ▫️ Throughout its long history, Thirlestane belonged to the Lauderdale family, one of the most able and famous in Scotland. The Maitlands came to Britain from France with William the Conqueror in 1066, and settled in Northumberland. In about 1250, Sir Richard Maitland married Avicia, the daughter and sole heiress of Thomas du Thirlestane. It was this marriage that brought the lands of Thirlestane and others into the ownership of the Maitland family. ▫️ Through military service and their contributions to law and the arts, the Maitlands gained increasing influence and power. In 1590, John Maitland became Lord Chancellor of Scotland. His son was created 1st Earl of Lauderdale and his brother, William Maitland, was Secretary to Mary Queen of Scots. ▫️ Today, the castle is still home to the Maitland family. ▫️ Image by @thirlestanecastle ——————————————————— #scottish #lovescotland #scotland #historicscotland #travel #tourism #photography #visitscotland #love_scotland #travelinggram #natureaddict #thisisscotland #travelphotography #scotspirit #brilliantbritain #ig_worldclub #igersscotland #goexplore #castle #discoverglobe #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #history #castlesofscotland #scotlandsbeauty #passionpassport #winter #discoverscotland #greatnorthcollective #lovegreatbritain

Flyover of the Cluanie Dam. Last one from this area for a while. This weekend I’m hoping the forecast will behave itself so that I can get a few photos on my way down to Stirling.

I’m starting to dream of summer, where we can all get pizza and sit out in Princes Street Gardens, but... then I remember the wasps and how I prefer my winter wardrobe. 💁🏼‍♀️💭🐝🌻
