What a great start to the Year of Natural Scotland – CNN has named Scotland as one of its top travel destinations for 2013!

The article makes a special mention that the role the film industry had in putting the spotlight on Scotland during 2012 – in particular the blockbuster hit Skyfall, which used the chilling backdrop of Glencoe in the Scottish Highlands for the climax of the movie. Another factor for Scotland featuring on the esteemed list was the wide range of walking trails available for those who love the great outdoors, including the West Highland Way, Rob Roy Way and the recent announcement of the Scottish National Trail (the longest walking trail at 756km) giving walking enthusiasts plenty of options to choose from when they visit.
