Arthur's Seat Edinburgh
Great place to escape the busy City crowds either for a gentle stroll through the Queens park or a more energetic climb to the summit of Arthur's Seat for its stunning views.
We parked at the Holyrood car park and took the kids (boys aged 11, 9 and 5) up the Radical Road route - a great choice as it gives fantastic views of the city and the Firth with the crags looming above you.

Luskentyre Isle of Harris
Lovely walking along this beach but as it has a car park and is easily accessible, it becomes quite popular with dog walkers and visitors.
Stunning views from the moment you park your car, huge rollers breaking across the beach line of the long, golden sandy beach.

Visiting the Alpaca experience was one of our highlights in Edinburgh.Highly recommended to everybody, old (we are 80) and young,who loves animals and nature.Bob knows everything about these gentle animals and the...
Make sure to wear sturdy shoes since you are walking in a park with natural pathway.
Paul was very easy to communicate with in setting up our tour and such a delight when we met him, his golden retrievers, and menagerie of birds at a beautiful park outside of Oban.
My husband and I spent a fabulous 3 hours with Paul and his incredible birds at Inverawe Fisheries and Country Park.

A big thank you to Stewart and David who made our visit unforgettable :) They are passionated by the nature, the environnement and explained to us everything we needed to know.
Quiraing Portree
It’s definitely worth the trip (although we were just very fortunate to find a place to park) as very busy with tourists taking shots during some excellent weather we were lucky enough to experience during our for...
The Quiraing is stunning and it's beautiful to walk the several kilometer route along it, from the unofficial car park over towards the port town on the other side of some of the peaks.

Puck's Glen Benmore
From car park, I'd recommend hiking the wonderful trail in clockwise fashion to be facing the creek as you hike uphill.
But the walk is on and incline the whole way through, climbing higher and higher into the forest until the trees break and you're gifted a breathtaking view across the forest park.
Thrilling to be so close to nature with seals with pups and sea birds.
The guides on the island are very helpful an informative too, making this a wonderful way to spend a day with nature.
Isle of Staffa Isle of Mull
Great views and good for nature lovers
Well worth the time for hikers and nature lovers.
Huisinis Beach Isle of Harris
It might be 14 miles from the main road but it passes through some sopecxtacular scenery .There is a good chance of spotting the golden eagles or park up and walk up to the viewing point .A new visitor centre incl...
There’s lots of walks in and around the hamlet ( about three cottages) A great idea is above the beach, in the car park, there is a toilet block, and and a room overlooking the beach with floor length windows, woo...
Durness Beach Durness
There's a good car park and some great shops.
The we went there was a wedding on a beach so it was difficult to find a car park, but the beach itself is fantastic
We hiked there from the community centre car park at Beascleite.
Its about a 5 minute walk to the beach from the main car park/toilet area.
Oldshoremore Beach Kinlochbervie
Well worth the detour from the North Coast 500, with public toilet facilities and car park within 100 yards of the beach it's easily a place you could pass an hour or two as the views are stunning.
A lovely sandy beach just a short walk and a few steps from the car park.
One of the owls actually took off and tried to catch a bird that was flying nearby, which they said she had NEVER DONE before, so that was quite cool to see the nature kick in like that.
Scarista Beach Isle of Harris
Great place to walk your dog or just have a serene walk about with nature as your main companion.
Even a wee photo stop at the golf club car park will be a memorable experience.
Loch Muick Ballater
Lovely place to walk around Loch Muick and visit Queen Victorias house, extremely lovely surroundings in the Cairngorms National Park.
It gets very very busy on a good day in peak season- you need £4 in coins for the car park- but it's a lovely wild area and a fine stretch of wild water,with just a small visitor centre and a pleasant walk on a go...
Glen Etive Glencoe Village
Magnificent drive through this mountainous Glen to the end of the road which has a car park and opens out into a breathtaking vista of Loch Etive.
This spot is a favourite amongst nature lovers so it can seem busy at times with two or three cars in the car park, however, there is plenty of space there so it is easy to wander and find your own little space of...
Phoenix Falconry Blackford
I would recommend that you check Phoenix Falconry out and hope that you too get the chance to meet nature up close and personal.
Highly recommended for anyone who likes nature!
Achmelvich Beach Lochinver
Stunning, stunning, stunning... White sandy beaches, quiet and on the day we went, we had sunshine, a great place to park up and enjoy the scenery!
Good car park and a lovely walk over the top of the cliffs to a couple of quiet small beaches in coves.
The flying displays were wonderful.The cafe onsite is great and the play park is a bonus, will be back x
I would highly recommend this attraction for families, nature lovers and will definitely be visiting again soon...
Sandwood Bay Kinlochbervie
Excellent path from car park to beach, passes lochans with sandy beaches, highland cows with calves, wild orchids, it was just beautiful- then....the beach.
I loved everything about this place, from the drive past little houses with great scenery, and stunning beaches, to park and start the hour and a half walk to get to this magnificent beach along a well maintained...
Steall Waterfall Fort William
Challenging 40 minute walk - a lot of climbing and occasional scrambling - from very busy car park brings you to wonderful open meadows, looking across to waterfall and interesting optional challenging high wire b...
Fantastic place to visit great views and a great hike to get there,car parking at the top car park can be a challenge,the rope bridge is a must try for a laugh
Kiloran Beach Isle of Colonsay
Large beach with easy access - if you have a dog probably best to park above the bay in the small car park and climb down to avoid the cattle in the field where there is additional parking.
Sango Bay Durness
Take away coffee, sandwich and cakes from Mather's shop at the beach car park proved to be the perfect picnic on a picturesque beach.
As you come out of the car park, if you turn towards the left (instead of going straight and towards the right for the Man of Hoy walk), you can stroll towards the Rackwick beach and can have great views.
Nature at its best.
We took a nature walk to the loch with the rangers pointing out flora and fauna, learned about the history and mission of the field centre and enjoyed a delicious lunch.
I stayed in rustic,comfortable en suite log cabin in the grounds of the estate, you really felt close to nature.
Glencoe Lochan Glencoe Village
Great for a gentle stroll to admire the nature and serenity of the lake.
You can do an easy mile walk around the lake, stop to picnic or enjoy the scenery from one of several benches, or take more challenging 1 mile paths that lead away from the lake and eventually back to the car park.
Just discovered this place, thanks to spotting a photo on instagram, and it is beyond beautiful, for any nature lovers this is a must see....we spotted a pod of dolphins upon arrival, the rugged coastline is just...
There is a dedicated car park where walks start and one can take a circular walk of a couple of miles or a longer walk that involves slightly steeper climbs and takes in the St Abbs lighthouse.
