A lonely church in a beautiful setting, Kilnave Chapel was the scene of a bloody massacre during the Battle of Traigh Gruinart.

We really took a lichen to the views from Castle Dounie last week: an iron-age hill fort just south of Crinan, Argyll. The walk's waymarked, but our website's got its own map and info just in case...

Crinan isn't your typical remote, Argyll settlement: a canal runs through it, making the village a lovely spot to linger at on a sunny day.

One road, one pub and one distillery: there's not much more to the Isle of Jura (unless you go for a walk)... and that's partly what makes it special. Craighouse is the island's capital, midway along the lone road, and also directly accessible by a nausea-inducing passenger ferry from the mainland.

Hill of Tarvit: a comfortable mansion a few miles south of Cupar, Fife. Small parts of the home date to the 1600's, but most of today's building was designed by Sir Robert Lorimer in the early 20th century for Frederick Sharp, a businessman who made his fortune in the jute industry. +The National Trust for Scotland

Since it's Sunday: Peden's Cove, Ayrshire marks the place where covenanter Alexander Peden once preached to his congregation across the River Ayr. It's at the bottom of Failford Gorge, an attractive spot with a historic village pub at its entrance.

The 12th century church at Kincardine O'Neil: worth a pit stop if you're heading into Deeside on the road from Aberdeen.

Castles don't come much tinier than Smailholm Tower, a wee gem of a building in the Scottish Borders. +Historic Environment Scotland

Blow away the cobwebs with a trip to Glentress: arguably Scotland's best mountain biking centre.
