Frankly, we all spend a bit too much time on social media. ‘Doom scrolling’ as it is known is very addictive and hours can be lost viewing variants of the same memes or stories on repeat. Instead, take control and invest in enriching and fascinating content all about Scotland (no bias here of course).

For those that love Scottish music, languages, tourist attractions or history, we have selected these YouTube channels that bring out the best of these topics.

If the great outdoors and heritage languages of Scotland interest you, then this is your man. Caldamac’s channel is full of videos that take you on a journey through the Scottish wilderness. Plus, this scholar is a native Gaelic speaker and he has many videos that cover that topic in a fun and educational way.


His content may not transport you to Scotland itself, but it does impart the Scottish perspective. Shaun covers a range of Scottish pop culture and events but is now using his platform to cover his journey across the United States. To learn more about what life is like over the pond for a born-and-raised Scot, check it out.

Scotland History Tours

Bruce Fummey brings the best of Scottish culture on his channel. A comedian, scholar, and overall charming gent, we discover some of the most fascinating stories about Scotland from him. Highland Gangsters, Scottish Samurais, the Scotsman who played Satan at cards… Indeed, Bruce’s content is endlessly intriguing and entertaining.

Braemar Media

Based in the Highlands of Braemar, this channel is a simple yet unmissable one if you love traditional Scottish music. For Scots pipes and drums, Highland dancing and more, Braemar Media is a must for authentic coverage of this cultural treasure in Scotland.
