The Great Outdoors of Scotland

Scotland is most known for its incredible and jaw dropping landscape. If you ever have the chance to visit Scotland you must travel to the Highlands. It is a sight that simply cannot be explained sufficiently in words. The raw beauty of the land helps you realize how lucky you are to live on such a beautiful planet.

Stirling is appropriately known as the “Gateway to the Highlands.” With Lomond and Trossachs National Park being only an hour drive away from the University of Stirling, there are countless hikes you can complete and many munro you can tick off. Munro is a Scottish term used to describe a Scottish mountain that is over 3,000 feet.

Glencoe is a beautiful valley that the popular James Bond film, Skyfall, was filmed. While many people say that the Isle of Skye is the most beautiful place in Scotland, I believe that the journey there is far more beautiful.

Hill walking, rock climbing and mountaineering are the biggest outdoor activities here in Scotland, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other wonderful outdoor activities. Kayaking, skiing, snowboarding, and much more. If you love the great outdoors, Scotland is the place for you!
