this month. Leading up to the Year of Natural Scotland, the images celebrate Scotland’s
majestic scenery, as well as the 10 Year anniversary of the Cairngorms National Park in

Says Rebecca Morris: “Scotland is special for so many reasons, for me it is the most
beautiful place in the world. The weather is very changeable, making the already
breathtaking landscapes even more dramatic and atmospheric.Every day and every season

are different. I love the wild, remote, wilderness feeling you get in the Highlands
and when combined with the history, wildlife, culture, folklore, music and food, you just
can’t beat it.”

magnificent historical heritage, incredible wildlife and truly breathtaking landscape. The
Year of Natural Scotland 2013 will provide visitors with the ideal opportunity to become
immersed in Scotland throughout the year, experience the rugged scenery of the Highlands,
the splendour of the national parks, the freshness of the natural larders, and the welcome
from people who passionately care about this wild land.

Colin Prior, who is celebrating 25 years of landscape photography next year says:
“Scotland has an inspirational quality in the landscape, the geology and the light which
surpasses anywhere else I have had the privilege to photograph. Many areas in Scotland,
such as Eigg, Muck and Rum possess their own character and charm and offer great
opportunities for exploration.”

with events, festivals and activities taking place across the length and breadth of
Scotland. Visitors will be given the opportunity to experience the great Scottish
outdoors, as well as to join in on a range of celebrations and discovering insider tips
