      An image can take us there.

      Here at Wilderness Scotland we love a good Scottish photo. We’re lucky to have a few amazing photographers on our guiding and office team. The imagery that comes back from these trips into the wild maybe doesn’t always quite do it justice. But an image can go a long way to making us feel that wonder of being out in Scotland’s wilderness.

      We love the way these amazing photos of Scotland make us feel inspired to get out there and see these views for ourselves. So we decided to share our most popular Instagram photos of 2018. We now have a thriving following on Instagram of over 34,000 Scotland lovers! These are the most liked photos of Scotland in the last 12 months. Which is your favourite? Head over to Instagram and let us know.

      This beautiful image of the old Ferry House by Loch Arribol in the far North West Highlands was this year’s most liked image. We love the slightly haunting feel of this place that is close to our hearts. It was shot by the hugely talented Lucy Hamilton, aka @loosemoose on Instagram. She is one of the featured photographers in our blog series, Best Landscape Photographers in Scotland.

      Kilchurn Castle, one of Scotland’s most iconic ancient castles sits on the edge of Loch Awe between Tyndrum and Oban on the West Coast of Scotland. This is near where Scotland’s most famous long distance walking trail, the West Highland Way passes. It’s a beautiful area of Scotland and fantastic to see it represented here so well! This was shot by the hugely talented Connor Mollison.

      This beautiful image of a stag caught amidst the falling snow was captured by local Cairngorms wildlife photographer Peter Cairns. The highland stag must be one of Scotland’s most photographed animals. So we love the way this winter portrait gives such an unusually intimate feeling of calm and peace from life in the forest. Shot in the Cairngorms National Park.

      One of the most striking views on the Isle of Skye is of the mighty Glen Sligachan. This photo is actually from the archives and was taken during the 70s but the timeless wild feel of this place shines through.

      Hushnish Beach is one of many absolutely stunning beaches on the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides. This photo was taken during one of our guided Walking adventures to the Outer Hebrides. This hugely varied archipelago of islands is one of our most favourite destinations. So it’s no surprise that it features in our most liked photos of 2018!
