Scottish Countryside Attractions

Abernethy Forest - Yesnaby

Scotland Attractions Guide

I could almost include the whole of Scotland - with the exception of Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee and a few towns -in this section. So much of Scotland is wild and beautiful, seemingly untouched by human hands. The farther north, the more into the backcountry and remote islands you go, the more untamed the land. This selection of countryside spots is just a sampling of the wondrous landscape that awaits the traveller.
