Paradise Beach in Scotland UK - Best hidden beautiful secret beaches in the world. Arisaig & Mallaig [01:04]
This beautiful small but quiet white sand beach was found purely by accident on our holiday trip to the Highlands in Scotland. A hidden paradise located on the back roads off the main A830 between Arisaig and Mallaig. The sand is stunning, very fine and white and pebble free with sparkling blue clear water, in fact it's so blue it could easily mistaken for the Mediterranean. It has to be one of the best untouched beaches in the UK if not the world. This is a real hidden gem. A great location for sun bathing, relaxing and walking after a day hiking and climbing in the Scottish mountains.

Crinan Canal Argyll Scotland [04:14]
Crinan Canal. Often described as the most beautiful short cut in the world. Nine miles long and every mile is a gem. Walk it or cycle and spend some time at the Crinan Canal basin. The Vital Spark sat rusting in the Crinan Canal basin for some time but it is now been looked after at Inveraray on Loch Fyne Argyll Scotland. The canal was started in 1794 and completed in 1801 by Thomas Telford. Like many Scottish projects it was finished two years late and over budget but with hindsight well worth every penny.
