We recently revealed news of a campaign by VisitScotland to create a #ScotSpirit movement. The aim is to encourage people worldwide to share their experience of the “spirit of Scotland” through photos and messages on social media using the hashtag #ScotSpirit.
It was found through research of visitors to Scotland that they believe the country has a unique spirit, from its magical landscapes to wonderful wildlife and a very warm welcome of the Scots.
We suggest a range of cycling holidays in Scotland that offer plenty of opportunities for discovering a #ScotSpirit moment.
Choose from magnificent castles, such as Glamis, Blair or Scone Palace or discover the glorious countryside of Perthshire on MacsBike Scotland’s Castle Trail cycling break.
The islands of Scotland each boast a special #ScotSpirit of their own. In particular, Skye with its fabulous high rise mountain ridges and dramatic seas is a great place to ride a bike and soak up many spirit of Scotland moments.
Special #ScotSpirit photographic opportunities are easy to find on the shores of Scotland’s famous lochs. Perhaps you’ll choose the most famous of them all, Loch Ness, or the largest by surface area, Loch Lomond. Then again, we might suggest Loch Katrine, Loch Tay, Loch Lubnaig on this wonderful Lochs and Glens cycle tour.
High rise #ScotSpirit moments are easy to come by in Scotland, from the tallest mountain of them all, Ben Nevis, to the northerly beauty of Ben Hope, to the lone Munro of Ben More on the Island of Mull, and the pyramid peak of Schiehallion in Perthshire. You could walk to the top of some of these mountains or take photographs from lower down during a long-distance cycle tour of Scotland.
The national parks of Scotland boast many #ScotSpirit locations. We recommend a Tour of the Cairngorms for discovering your favourite spot.
Please do tell us about your #ScotSpirit discoveries.
