18 mesmerising photos of Scotland that provide instant calm

With everything going on in the world right now, we could all do with a few moments of calm and some armchair travel to glorious Scotland could be just the thing to ease those anxious mind.

While we don't know when things will be back to normal, we're all about soaking up every moment of peace and joy right now. Until we're allowed to travel for staycations again (read the latest government advice here), we thought we'd help you escape to Scotland's wild and remote scenes via 18 breathtaking photos.

Taking in the likes of the Trossachs, Loch Lomond, Glencoe and Fort William, these stunning pictures show how beautiful Britain really is and why it's worth considering for your first holiday after lockdown. Who needs to go abroad when we've got the incredible Jacobite steam train, picturesque town Oban and mighty Ben Nevis right here?

In celebration of the beautiful scenery on our doorstep and to help clear your mind of all those negative news headlines, we've rounded up some of the most serene views in Scotland.

And don't forget to check out Prima's real trip to Scotland in May 2021. It takes in all the highlights, from Edinburgh Castle to Loch Lomond over four epic days.
