This challenge closed about 5 years ago.

The Challenge

Think of all the wonderful lochs, the bustling cities, the mountains, the architecture, the history…. show us what you have got.

I realise not everyone has been to Scotland but wait, there will be a different challenge for you all to enter :-) This challenge was inspired by the fact that my friend from Aberdeen… but I figured it was time for a new geographical challenge anyway.


  1. Scottish landmarks (Edinburgh Castle, Forth Bridge etc)
  2. Scottish famous places (Loch Lomond, Gretna Green, St Andrews, etc)
  3. Description essential if a landscape/smaller town etc.
  4. Highland cows or other similar sights are OK as long as there is some of the setting showing.
  5. Photographs only. If it is not a photograph or has been processed so far that it no longer looks like a photograph, it will not be accepted.


  1. Political/Controversial Images.
  2. Wales, England, Ireland. (Shetland OK and other islands OK)
  3. “Fake” Scotland… a display of shortbread in an airport somewhere around the world, a wedding with people wearing kilts somewhere around the world etc. Of course these things in context and located in Scotland would be OK :-P
  4. Anywhere/thing else.
  5. No nudity, bugs, reptiles, arachnids.
