  • Pitlochry has been voted one of the best places to see the Autumn leaves and there's no spot more central than our #PitlochryBackpackers. Nestled right in the centre of town, the converted hotel is the perfect place to stay while exploring the hills and forests of beautiful #Perthshire.
  • #KiltRock is famous for more than just its stunning location, it also has a dark secret. It's the home of mermaids. If you don't believe us give it a visit and listen for their song. But don't get too close to the edge trying to get a glimpse, that's just what they want...
Luckily a Piper stands at the top playing his bagpipes to counter the effects of their song and thus saving many an enchanted man from their doom. Check out this enchanting spot on a 3 Day Isle of Skye @macbackpackers tour, leaving twice a week from Edinburgh.
  • Our @macbackpackers guide @funky_tourguide is pretty great at finding a #coo or two on her tours. This rather damp pic is our choice for #Coosday. Join @funky_tourguide this winter on one of her tours! And save 15% by using the code "LeafPeeper" at checkout.
  • The isle of Skye has so much to explore. #LealtFalls on the northern coast is often underappreciated because the viewpoint doesn't show it fully, but follow your @macbackpackers guide down to the beach and you'll discover why it's a favorite spot for many on the island. •
