The autumn season sees a vibrant mixture of bright colours, as trees slowly change from green to brown and the landscape becomes vivid with rich hues of orange.
If you’re keen to explore and soak up the views that autumn offers in Scotland, these are some of the best places to see autumn colours in the country.
1. Glen Lyon
Located in Perthshire, Glen Lyon is the longest enclosed glen in Scotland, stretching for 32 miles. The River Lyon runs through the glen, with the two remote lochs of Loch Lyon and Loch an Daimh situated in the upper reaches, offering breathtaking views made even more special during the autumn months (Photo: Shutterstock) Photo: Shutterstock

The Hermitage in Dunkeld is a National Trust for Scotland protected site and is home to giant Douglas firs - which are among the tallest trees in the UK - and the dramatic Black Linn Falls. During autumn, the woodlands along the banks of the River Braan are rich in earthy colours, and you may even see red squirrels jumping among the treetops or salmon leaping up the falls as they head further along the river (Photo: Shutterstock) Photo: Shutterstock
4. Devil's Pulpit
Located in Stirling, the Devil’s Pulpit is a mushroom-shaped rock surrounded by crimson-coloured waters. The surrounding moss-covered rocks and red coloured stream, caused by underlying sandstone, are bursting with colour, especially when autumnal sunlight hits (Photo: Shutterstock) Photo: Shutterstock
