  • It's been a strong start to the decade and today we have our first #Coosday post of 2020 by @shardul_sathe. These beasties can be found across the highlands, isles and even as close to the cities as the #PentlandHills (just a 45 minute bus from Edinburgh). They're one of our favorite creatures to check out on your visit to Scotland and once you spot one you'll understand why 🐮
  • What's on your Scottish Bucket List? For many fans of Harry Potter the idea of seeing the magical #HogwartsExpress chug past them is nothing short of a dream. Luckily, Scotland (as it usually does) provides! Check out the #GlenfinnanViaduct on your next visit to Scotland and (with a bit of research) you might see the famous train 🚂
