The National Trust for Scotland has joined forces with Google Maps to bring some of the Trust’s most stunning countryside to virtual visitors all over the globe.
Simon Goodall has braved blizzards, rain and wind to capture the remote views of the Trust’s countryside properties. Using the Google Street View Trekker, he was able to capture 360 degree stunning views which you can watch here. The result is an captivating perspective of some of Scotland’s best known wild destinations, allowing online viewers to trace paths along mountain ridges or scan the landscape from island cliffs or high waterfalls.
