Come and create your very own brilliant moments of tranquillity across Scotland. Spring and summer are just around the corner, so what better time to plan your visit?

We’ve picked just a few ideas to get you thinking, but remember to share your own experiences via #brilliantmoments

The Isle of Skye

Accessible by both land and sea, the beautiful Isle of Skye offers the ideal island escape. It boasts the perfect mix of natural beauty, wildlife, history, stunning scenery and more. From the Old Man of Storr to the impressive Cuillin mountains, the island’s dramatic landscape has featured as the backdrop in many Hollywood films. Check out our special Isle of Skye film trailer.

Kilchurn Castle

Situated at the head of Loch Awe in Argyll, this dramatic fortress dates from the 15th century. As well as the fascinating history of the castle which was the original power base of Clan Campbell, make sure to climb to the top of the tower battlements where you can rest for a moment and soak up the striking views across the loch and beyond to Ben Cruachan.

Spot wildlife

Whether it is dolphin spotting off the Moray Coast or catching a glimpse of a golden eagle souring high above the trees, enjoy a day of wildlife watching across Scotland. Make a day of it and head out into the countryside with your binoculars to see what you can spot. Or enjoy a relaxing boat tour to see what animals you can see off Scotland’s coast.

Tee off in style

As the Home of Golf, choose to tee-off at one of over 550 courses. From Fife to Dumfries & Galloway and across Scotland’s islands, why not enjoy a round amid the beautiful surrounds of a coastal course such as Harris Golf Club or enjoy the view to the islands from Traigh near Arisaig?

Step back in time

The Callanish Stones on the Isle of Lewis, the Ring of Brodgar on Orkney and the Machrie Moors stone circle on the Isle of Arran. These are just a few of Scotland's fascinating ancient landmarks which are waiting to be discovered.
