  • Have you checked out the Otter at the Brightwater Visitor Centre in #Kyleakin, home of our #SkyeBackpackers. The centre has plenty of information about the surrounding area and is worth a look in for those with some free time in town. It's also a good spot to see #CastleMoil (the Broken Castle) which sits across the harbor.
  • Always a highlight when in Scotland, #EileanDonanCastle is the most photographed castle in the country and on a clear day it's easy to see why. Have you checked it out yet? •

Our #SkyeBackpackers and @lochsidehostel are within easy driving distance of the beautiful Castle or you could always grab a @macbackpackers tour and see thiw famous spot as you explore the country with our great Scottish guides!
  • Nothing quite as cute as a #Coo... It's our number one favorite day: #Coosday! This curious coo proving everything in Scotland looks good, even during the winter. Perfect shot by @n0_0ne997, give him a follow! •

#HeilanCoos are found throughout Scotland, but due to their relatively expensive price they're only owned by a small selection of farmers. So when you see one, you best get out and take a photo!
  • With its idyllic streets, beautiful scenery and thriving restaurant scene; Pitlochry is a great stop off on your highland roadtrip. If you want to explore the surrounding region then we have you covered at our @pitlochrybackpackers on the main road through town. Check it out on your next trip up North!
