As the summer approaches and the days start getting longer don’t miss the opportunity to catch a Scottish sunset before the nights are too short. One of the great places to watch the sunsest is Eigg. The island is like something from a postcard and has arguably one of the best views in Scotland. Look out over to Rum from Laig Beach. On a clear night, the Norse-named peaks are on full display when the sun goes down.

Calton Hill, Edinburgh

Right in the heart of Edinburgh’s city centre, the top of Calton Hill is only a short walk away. On the way up to the summit, views of the Athenian acropolis peek out from above the skyline. Once you reach the summit, you can look out across the whole of Scotland’s capital as the sun goes down.

Neist Point, Skye

Neist Point sits on the far west of the Duirinish peninsula. Featuring a lighthouse and dramatic cliffs, it’s like something from a film, making it one of the most spectacular spots on the island. Views from the cliffs stretch all the way to Barra in the south and Benbecula and Harris in the north.

Lyle Hill, Greenock

Lochinver, Sutherland

This beauty spot encompasses everything you could want. The views west and north look over the Lewis in the far distance. From behind the village sit imposing mountains which help to create a pink hue to the sunset, stretching over a quaint fishing port and putting all others to shame.
