Hey, everyone! Welcome to another Travel Wednesday! I’ve decided that today I’m writing about Scotland because it has been a huge dream of mine to visit but I haven’t had the chance yet. Therefore, once again, I’m sharing with you cute, little places I’d love to visit in Scotland for those amazing Insta photos! Come with me!
Isle of Skye and the Inner Hebrides
Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile
The Scottish Highlands
The Willow Tearooms – 217 Sauchiehall Street – Charles Rennie Mackintosh had control over every aspect of the design of this tearoom – not only the exterior but also the interior details, right down to the teaspoons and even the waitresses’ dresses!
Coined as a ‘beacon for Scotland’s Creative Industries’, The Lighthouse is Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s first ever public commission. This former Glasgow Herald building is Scotland’s Centre For Design and Architecture and also boasts sublime panoramic views, a myriad of cool events spaces and exhibitions galore. A total day-maker.
Jupiter Artland is a playground of creativity, with a new surprise looming around every twist and turn. This critically acclaimed sculpture park and art gallery is found in West Lothian, a mere hop from Edinburgh and boasts epic amounts of alluring artistic masterpieces. Perfect for those seeking a unique adventure with an out-the-box twist.
…do exist in Scotland! When stumbling upon the Fairy Pools on Skye in Glen Brittle, you can’t help but look around for the magic portal. An enchanting kingdom wonderfully suited to wild swimmers and free spirits, the fixating green and blue hues dancing within this natural waterfall are otherworldly.
Rustic and delightfully soothing, the Secret Herb Garden, situated below the spectacular backdrop of the rolling Pentlands upon Edinburgh’s periphery, is a specialist herb nursery. Not only that, this little jewel of a secret has a café and shop overflowing with vintage furniture, beer and bees. The scenic gardens, which are undeniably worth exploring, span out across 7.5 acres of wild land and are guarded by native hedgerows and a wandering stream. Discovering the nations of herbs in the glasshouse is a must.
