Scotland in June

Isle of Coll, Scotland

I spent a few days in Scotland at the beginning of June with my family. The scenery was stunning, the weather perfect and it was just gorgeous! We drove north from Glasgow through the Loch Lomond National Park – a stunning area of lochs & mountains.

We stayed in Oban, a lovely small port on the West coast, we enjoyed the local fish restaurants and watching the sunset over the harbour at 10pm.  From here we had a fantastic day trip with Basking Shark swimming with seals off the Isle of Coll – a stunning wilderness with turquoise blue sea and beautiful wildflowers. On the way to Coll we stopped at Tobermory on the Isle of Mull, famous for its colourful houses and the children’s TV programme ‘Balamory’.

Scotland West CoastFrom Oban we headed north and stopped at Port Appin and walked down to Airds Bay for lunch, again beautiful. From here towards Glen Coe then down through the Bridge of Orchy to join the main route south. Several films have been made in Scotland and the James Bond film ‘Skyfall’ features many scenes here. It is a much starker landscape than the west coast but very dramatic.

Overall an amazing holiday, helped by the weather, I highly recommend it and hope to explore more of Scotland in the future. For more information on Scotland have a look at  the Visit Scotland website. You can see more of my photos on instagram.
