WE know from the letters sent to The Sunday Post that you love Scotland.

And the team here is equally proud of our special country. So we’ve created a four-part magazine series for you, starting in this weekend’s Sunday Post.

Scotland’s Gems is your essential guide to all that our vibrant country has to offer.

From the majesty of Edinburgh Castle and the splendour of the West Highland Way, to the best of Scottish food, hospitality and must-sees and must-dos, we’ve got them covered.

What makes Scotland’s Gems so special, though, is its celebration of hidden gems – those quirky wee places that aren’t quite as well-known.

Have you ever visited the Shakin’ Brig, for instance? Or how about the beach that has to be heard to be believed?

Our guides, each packed with recommendations from readers, will uncover region by region the array of fantastic experiences each area has to offer – and where you’ll find the warm welcomes along the way!

So don’t miss Scotland’s Gems, part one, in this week’s Sunday Post – and get ready to enjoy the treasures all around you.
