Top 10 Places to Visit in Scotland

For two weeks my family and boyfriend traveled around Scotland! These are my top places I recommend to visit!  There are even more places that we went and you can read a more in depth story about we did, how we traveled, and where we stayed in the travel section here!  Scotland is definitely a must visit with many historical sights to visit along with natural beauty!
rosslyn chapel
1)Rosslyn Chapel– The heart of Robert the Bruce is buried there.
2)Doune Castle– Made famous by Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Outlanders
fairy forest2
3)Fairy Pools and Fairy Forest on Isle of Skye- These are located in two different places on Skye but both are EXTREMELY COOL! The fairy pools are beautiful pools of clear water that run from the mountains. The fairy forest are small mounds that you can climb up.  People have left the fairies gifts in different places.
kilt falls
4)Kilt Falls– This is a beautiful waterfall that drops into the ocean. There are also dinosaur footprint fossils nearby!
quiraing
5)Quiraing– Amazing jagged landforms made by glaciers moving through the land- some good hiking trails around.
6)The Butt of Lewis– Amazing Light house with dramatic cliffs. If it is warm enough there is a beautiful beach nearby.  This is also the windiest place in the UK.
7)Callanish Standing Stones– These are standing stones similar to the concept of Stone Henge.
ardvreck castle2
8)Ardvreck Castle – Located in Ullapool this is a beautiful ruin castle that is surrounded by crystal clear waters of a highland lake.
9)Skara Brae– A 5000 year old stone age village that was uncovered in a brutal storm. It was inhabited from roughly 3180 BC–2500 BC!
dunrobin castle
10)Dunrobin Castle– This is still occupied but you are still able to tour it. There is also an amazing falconry show.
If you have any questions about our trip, please feel free to ask!
