The Beauty Of Scotland In A Few Seconds

We wander Scotland on mossy paths in gnarly forests between rugged mountains and along wild bubbly creeks, taking in breathtaking views of the Sea which flows deep into the dramatic landscape to form a scenery of rough beauty.

Leaving England behind us after two fortnights of house sitting in the south of the United Kingdom we headed up to Scotland for our next assignment. What we encountered in Scotland was unexpected and breathtaking.

We chose Argyll Forest Park for our first hike with our new buddy, Mac, the fox-red Labrador. Mac lives in Dunoon in a house on the hill with spectacular sea-views. During the owners vacation to Thailand we are the caretakers for two weeks – what a awesome convenience! The dogs, Mac and Vlou, the traveling Beagle, get along very well and already stick together to explore the tracks in the Scottish astonishing jagged landscape.

The Scottish Argyll Forest Park is a land of rugged peaks and hidden dales, peaceful lakes and bubbling rivers. It’s Britain’s oldest Forest Park, founded in 1935. The park stretches from the Holy Loch to the scabrous peaks of the Arrochar Alps. It is situated at the end of the Highland boundary fault, the great crack in the earth’s surface that marks the line between Lowland and Highland Scotland. The Scots certainly live in mid of magnificent scenery! Despite the warnings that we’ll encounter plenty rain in Scotland the sun pays her seldom tribute to the first spring days to our very delight.

I’m searching for natural beauty and wilderness, while I’m travelling relentlessly to find delightful places and encounters with wildlife. I try to capture the thrill of the moments in photography and words, hoping to inspire others with the love for animals and nature.

  1. Beautiful scenery. I’ve never visited Scotland so your images came as a surprise. I never imagined Scotland can be so beautiful. Thank you for sharing this post and thank you for joining us for #TheWeeklyPostcard.

    1. We were also stunned of the beautiful scenery as first time visitors. If you don’t mind harsh weather conditions it’s worth to visit. We are looking forward to return in Summer again.

  2. Lovely video! Are you still in Scotland?? #WeekendWanderlust

    1. Hi Ashley, yes we are still in Scotland this week and return mid June for two other house sits. Next week we are heading south to Southampton. Surely a bit warmer and the flowers may be out there meanwhile.

    1. We are happy that you enjoyed our video. The temperature is around 5 to 8ºC. As long as there is no wind it’s alright. Even the leaves are starting to sprout.

  3. My husband is Scottish and we visit a couple times a year. If you have time, try visiting the Trossachs!

    1. Hi Susanna, we will! As we will be returning mid June for a house sit in Inverness and Altbea we will have plenty of time to visit more places if we don’t manage to go there now.
