Fancy a breath of fresh air without leaving your desk?

Science says we should take regular screen-breaks to keep our eyes and brains healthy.

How as a young woman, major surgeries have affected my sex life

But if, like me, the view from you window is a drab concrete jungle, your time would be better spent ogling the gorgeous shots from this year’s Scottish Landscape Photographer Of The Year Awards.

The competition celebrates the best of Scottish life, from its idyllic seaside towns to the windswept wilderness which surrounds them.

The organisers shared the winning images and the wanderlust is strong. It’s hard to believe breathtaking mountains like these are just a train ride away.

From Loch Pityoulish to Glen Affric, here are approximately 23 reasons why Scotland is the prettiest place in the world.

Nick Hanson’s portfolio, which included Autumnal snaps from Loch Pityoulish, Glen Afric, and Glamaig was the overall winner

(Overall Winner) Nick Hanson Glamaig Reflection Sligachan, Isle of Skye As the sun started to rise behind Glamaig and the red Cuillin, it created lovely soft colours in the sky above, which were also captured in the perfectly still loch.

(Overall Winner) Nick Hanson Autumn in Glen Affric Glen Affric It was a damp day in Glen Affric, which allowed a small amount of mist to form in places, as well as boosting the autumnal colours.
