Not being able to drive has never hindered Kay Gillespie when it comes to exploring the best Scotland has to offer.
Better known as The Chaotic Scot, Kay is a travel blogger and writer who specialises in inspiring and entertaining readers as she showcases all the places you can get to using only public transport.
Scottish islands are her speciality, having visited over 60 and with no plans of stopping there. We challenged her to pick her top three favourite places to visit in bonnie Scotland.
Isle of Iona
To me, this small and perfectly formed island is the most serene and beautiful place in the world; the beaches to the north are a dream of white sand, turquoise sea and views across to mountainous Mull. Getting there by public transport is an epic, scenic journey and absolutely worth it.
Mara Fish Bar, Isle of Arran
Seafood always tastes best by the sea, and when Gordon from Mara Fish Bar is cooking. Cycle or catch the bus from Brodick for a feast of fresh, local, sustainable seafood with a creative, mouth-watering twist. Say hi to Front of House Kirsty, and look out for their wee Westie doggy in the window, Mac.
Loch Ossian Youth Hostel
This wooden-clad, eco-friendly hostel sits in a wild and remote Highland location, cut off from the public road network. Take the train to Corrour, the UK’s highest station above sea level, and stop for a drink and venison casserole at Corrour Station House, before the 1-mile walk to the hostel.
