If you are looking for artistic inspiration in Scotland, it is impossible to point to just one location in Scotland which has the mix of landscapes, seascapes and wide open space to let your creativity flow. Here are four areas of Scotland we would recommend everyone to visit:
Wester Ross is one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland, with fabulous uninterrupted views over to Skye, Raasay and Rona. If you are visiting the area, a visit to Applecross is a must and you can find out about accommodation and restaurants on Steve Carter’s Website.
The East Neuk of Fife’s villages such as Elie, Crail and St Monan’s offer a fabulous seascape, great eating places and artistic inspiration. Visit Pittenweem during August for the wonderful Pittenweem Arts Festival which showcases artists work in intimate locations. Accommodation can be found at East Coast Lets.
Wigtown in Galloway is home to the Wigtown Book Festival which every year in September welcomes authors from around the world to this tiny village. The surrounding countryside is rolling and the sea is never far, and Kirkudbright – another Artists’ Town is closeby.
Argyll is hidden gem and boasts beautiful beaches views and many Scottish Islands including Tiree where the Tiree Wave Classic is held in October. Visit Explore Argyll for more information.
