Scotland is a lot more than kilts and bagpipes. From heather-covered mountains and stunning waterfalls that plunge into a turquoise sea to magnificent castles, idyllic beaches and pristine pools like the fantasy-like Fairy Pools pictured above, this landscape just might be the most magical on earth.

This rocky ridge on the Isle of Skye with its eastern face a labyrinth of craggy spires and pinnacles created by a massive ancient landslide, is one of Scotland’s most photographed natural wonders. The “Old Man of Storr,” is the tallest and most distinctive of the spires and can be seen for miles around.
