''There is a great sense of freedom when driving through the Highlands of #Scotland. Roads winding their way through mountainous scenery, and trails leading into the unknown. No matter how many times you visit, it will remain a special place. This is the famous single lane track entering the Quiraing, a truly unique location of the Highlands, with plenty of trails to satisfy the most avid hiker.

''The Old Man of Storr, situated on the Isle of #Skye, is a remarkable area of rocky pinnacles, which were left behind after numerous landslides in the past. This view of ''needle rock'' is a personal favourite, taken just below the Old Man of Storr. You may even question whether youre still on planet Earth as you wander past these alien-like formations!'' - @a.iqb #lpinstatakeover #lonelyplanet #travel #scotland

''Hey guys, Asad (@a.iqb) here! When visiting #Scotland, definitely give yourself a day or two to explore the Glencoe area. This road in the valley leads to Glen Etive, a single lane stretching for over 15km. With the road twisting and turning through some of the greatest scenery of the Highlands, youll most likely encounter an abundance of wildlife roaming freely on the hills along the way.'' - @a.iqb #lpinstatakeover #travel #lonelyplanet
