Here at Scotland off the beaten track we love exploring Scotland and sharing it with the world. Looking for inspiration or places to visit? You've come to the right place...


Welcome! We escaped to Scotland from down south in 2011 and love sharing our experiences here. Too many people visit thinking Scotland's beauty boils down to a few popular locations: Edinburgh Castle, the west bank of Loch Ness and roadside views of Skye to name three. But explore off the beaten track too and you'll stumble across the experiences that make a holiday truly special.

Scotland off the beaten track eventually aims to cover the whole of Scotland, providing the ultimate directory of places to visit. Our continually expanding guide currently covers over 1,200 places all over the country, including more than 300 walks. Lofty hill climbs, short afternoon strolls, tourist hotspots (yes, they're here too) and little-known gems; whether you're planning a holiday or exploring your local area, hopefully you'll be able to find inspiration here.
