Sketching Scotland’s coastline has never been easier with VisitScotland

Scotland’s coastlines offer some of the most stunning backdrops in the world. For budding artists looking to capture some of that magic, the VisitScotland Sketching Scotland series has made it easier than ever before.

Launched as a stay-at-home activity during lockdown – just as our new podcast, Anchored, was – the series provides step-by-step sketching tutorials to help people to create stunning pieces of artwork of some of Scotland’s best-known landmarks.

For the sea-lovers amongst us, you can choose to draw Shetland’s oldest lighthouse, the Sumburgh Head Lighthouse, Bow Fiddle Rock at Portknockie, the colourful houses at Tobermory Harbour or Orkney’s iconic Old Man of Hoy.

The videos also share interesting facts about each featured landmark.

Other landmarks included in the series are: Dundee’s V&A Museum and the Isle of Lewis’ Calanais Standing Stones.

Find out more about the Sketching Scotland series to get involved. Or take inspiration from Cellardyke-based artist Yolande Kenny’s sketch of the Scottish Fisheries Museum to create your own version of our historic site.
