A walk around the Isle of Iona, Scotland The windswept island, burial place of Scottish kings for centuries, is a mile from Mull, and stretches a tiny one mile by 3.5 miles across. Its religious roots lie in the pre-Christian era, when the island is thought to have been sacred to the Iron Age inhabitants of the Hebrides.
St Ninians View, Shetland. The beach here is a long spit of fine sand connecting the small isle of St Ninian\'s to Shetland. This kind of sand causeway is officially known as a tombolo. Whatever you call it this is certainly one of the most picturesque beaches on the islands with a good range of facilities
Top Scottish Walks - The Bay at Portmahomack, Easter Ross. A planned fishing village, built in the 1700s. All the names are Norse. The hotel is lovely, and it's a place for pottering before heading to the pub. Of interest is the 6th-century church. They've found what they think is a Pictish monastery & there are four remarkable stones carved with Pictish symbols. They look across the Firth to another big stone in Elgin.
Magnificent, beautiful, remarkable, and just a little bizarre - St Conans Kirk was built between 1881 and 1886, and comprised the nave and part of the choir of the later church that visitors see today. Walter Campbell had grander plans, however, and in 1907 he began work on a much more ambitious church. All the stone used to build the church came from boulders on nearby hillsides that were rolled to the site before being worked
Hiking past Brisdale beach in Knoydart. This area is thought to be the most remote area in the British Isles and is often referred to as Britains last wilderness. Ten miles from any roads its an amazing walk in along Loch Hourn. Some of the most stunning mountains and beaches
Chanonry Point is a small peninsula extending over a mile south east into the Moray Firth from Rosemarkie & Fortrose. Every day, people come here to enjoy the amazing views, snap pictures of the imposing Fort George on the opposite shore, and of course to keep your fingers crossed and see the dolphins. This is said to be one of the BEST onshore places to see them. Photo: Dolphins at Chanonry Point by Michael Brewis (Northumbrian Blue), via Flickr
Lairig Ghru, Cairngorms - A walking along the Lairig Ghru pass. a 22-mile hike through the heart of the Cairngorms, eschewing the high peaks for a walk across the valley and over the mountain range's watershed at the Pools of Dee - some of Scotland's remotest terrain. Here, occasional trout rise in black water surrounded on all sides by broken granite and steep glaciated valley walls.
