Scotland has been named one of the world's top travel destinations for 2018, with special recognition going to the Isle of Skye.
The list by travel magazine, Wanderlust, named Scotland in fourth place.
The magazine described Scotland as being home to "heathered highlands and glassy lochs to remote windswept isles where the only sound is the breeze gusting through rocky crag."
The list mentions the beauty of Harris and Barra, going on to say: "But for pure drama – and joy – you can simply head to the wild green canvas of Skye’s Trotternish Peninsula, where walks pinch the 30km edge of this wide open expanse offering unrivalled views of the majestic Cuillin range."
