For those visiting Scotland, there is awe-inspiring scenery around every corner, although I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that. For those Ig addicts out there, there is no shortage of instagrammable places in Scotland. You will be clicking your camera in every direction, and I’m fully confident you can get some truely epic shots.

Although it was difficult to put a list of instagrammable places together, below you will find 5 that I came across on my roadtrip around some of this beautiful country. If you want to get some gram-worthy shots, see ” 5 Instagrammable places in Scotland” below!

WAIT! Before you go any further, Edinburgh is not included in this post. I have an entirely separate post on “5 instagrammable places in Edinburgh“. It’s such an amazing city it deserved a post of it’s own, would love if you checked it out!

5 Instagrammable places in Scotland

  1. Sligachan Old Bridge

The Isle of Skye along the West coast of Scotland is one of the most visited places in the UK fora reason. It is a must-see, and not far from the Skye bridge – connecting mainland Scotland to the Isle of Skye – lies “Sligachan Old Bridge“.

It’s such a beautiful place and legend has it, enchanted waters run underneath the bridge. Apparently, they hold the key to everlasting beauty. Wish I’d dunked my entire head in there while I had the chance. Don’t make the same mistake I did. Just in case!

So many places around here to get the perfect Ig-worthy shot. Standing at the bridge, there are photo opportunities from every angle. You are surrounded by the most beautiful hills, and the rocky river running off into the distance. Why not visit and have a walk around, I promise you won’t be disappointed!

2. Eilean Donan Castle – Instagrammable places in Scotland

Eilean Donan Castle lies a mere ten minutes from the bridge to the Isle of Skye. We visited it at both sunrise and sunset, and I would be torn to decide which time was most magical.

On our road trip, Eoghan and I pulled up here in the dark one night to sleep.  We could see something lighting up the lake in the distance. When we woke up and could see the Eilean Donan Castle standing in all its magnificence, we couldn’t believe how lucky we were to have stopped off here for the night.

It turns out, it’s one of the highland’s most visited places and I’m sure you can see why. I’ve never seen anything this enchanting in a Disney movie – you can’t get any more Instagrammable than that. There are so many places here to get the perfect shot.

3. Any Loch

Loch Duich

There are endless Loch’s in Scotland which provide the best instagrammable locations.  The picture above was taken at Loch Duich at sunrise. Each Loch is as picturesque as the next, believe me! If you get a lake with water as smooth as glass, I guarantee you will get some truely stunning shots.

Loch Lomond is just as instagrammable, however I didn’t get stopping for a shot there – must to my disappointment!

4. The Old Man  Of Storr

The Old Man of Storr is a majestical and ancient rock formation due to a landslide on the Storr hills, although, myth tells it’s the remains of a giant. You can find this extraordinary place on the Isle of Skye. It is located on the north of Skye, in an area called Trotternish.

There’s a car park at the bottom and it’s a “medium” difficulty hike up to the Storr – (although pretty difficult if you’re as unfit as me!). You can get right up to the rock structures at the top, although sadly, we had limited time and so didn’t get to finish it. As good as it looked from here I can only imagine how incredible it looked from the top. Just google image it to have your mind blown. I bet you could get some epic Instagram shots from up there! I know I will the next time I’m there.

This is 5 minutes into the hike, imagine the view from further up.

5. Falls of Falloch

The Falls of Falloch was one of those unexpected but spectacular finds! The name translates to “hidden falls” and that couldn’t be a more perfect description of them.

Driving along the route around Loch Lomond, we saw a sign for these mysterious falls and we pulled off the main road to take a look. A couple of minutes walk along a trail, opened out onto this secluded place. The sound of the water thundering over the edge rang through the air. There was no one else there which was amazing – perfect to take your time and get the best Ig shot.

Driving along the road if you miss the unnoteworthy sign, you would have no idea this beautiful site was hidden behind the trees. A perfect hidden gem and one of my favourite instagrammable places in Scotland.

      When I travel I’m mainly thinking about taking in the scenery. I took hundreds of images of scenery alone and only a couple have been on my Instagram. My main priority was enjoying beautiful Scotland. However, I do think Instagram serves as a great platform for inspiring people to get out and enjoy the outdoors more. It’s a great way to get your photography seen too!
