The Year of Natural Scotland is a chance to celebrate Scotland’s reputation as a place of outstanding natural beauty, either on the doorstep or exploring further afield.

In January US TV channel CNN named Scotland as the top travel choice for 2013, emphasising the Year of Natural Scotland.

This initiative aims to make people aware of how we can make the most of our nation’s natural beauty.
