Those of you who read me regularly know that I am a lover of Scotland. It is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, at least from my point of view. It is not that I have traveled to more than 100 countries and can say it with much knowledge of cause, but I know very well that what I lived there is not easily lived anywhere.
Scotland is synonymous with nature. It is true that its most important cities well worth a visit (the same can be said for their towns), but what really catches you is the beauty hidden in its greenest landscapes, which although distributed throughout the country, make special sense when we travel to the Scottish Highlands (Highlands) and the island of Skye.
Mountains and lakes everywhere
In the week-long tour of Scotland I shared in Hard Hobbit To Break I already mentioned that the experience had been spectacular, especially in the last days, which is when I had the opportunity to step on the Highlands and look out on the Isle of Skye.
We rented a car and hallucinated with the landscapes we saw from the road. We were surrounded by green mountains and lakes as if it were the most normal thing in the world. We wanted to continually stop to take photos, but since we wanted to see the most beautiful castles in Scotland we had to settle for taking out the camera less than we would have liked.
Scotland seen from a drone
Who did take out the camera on numerous occasions, or rather the drone, is the photographer Stefan Zimmermann. The video that was uploaded to YouTube in August 2018 currently accumulates more than a million and a half views, and the truth is that it does not surprise me. Bird's eye view of incredible landscapes in 4K. We can see the Eilean Donan Castle, Glenfinnan and the famous train track that we have seen so many times in 'Harry Potter', the purity of the Isle of Skye ... It is a compilation of recordings that I recommend you see, especially if you have doubts about whether It is worth traveling to Scotland or not. Edinburgh is fine, but it is a sin to miss Scotland's most unspoilt areas.
