Shetland’s oldest lighthouse, Sumburgh Head, features in VisitScotland’s Sketching Scotland series; a campaign to inspire future visitors to Scotland as COVID restrictions ease.

The lighthouse is located on the southern tip of the Shetland Mainland and offers awe-inspiring views of surrounding wildlife, nature, and the North Sea.

The Sketching Scotland series highlights 20 of Scotland’s best-known landmarks and invites keen artists from across Scotland and beyond to sketch them.

Each landmark sketch is supported by step-by-step tutorials to guide users through how to get the representation of each attraction just so. The videos also provide useful insights on each location’s rich history, alongside sketching tips.

Other landmarks included in the series are: the magnificent Kelpies in Falkirk, the V&A Museum in Dundee and the Calanais Standing Stones on the Isle of Lewis.

Find out more about the Sketching Scotland series or take part in the Sumburgh Lighthouse sketch.
